FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Sawyer now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in Hong Kong he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze and he's been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who are trapped inside the building - above the fire line.
At the start, shots of The Pearl, with the Victoria Harbour in the backdrop, can be seen with the Bank of China Tower, Central Plaza, Two International Finance Centre and International Commerce Centre, the tallest four skyscrapers in Hong Kong; each one surpassing over the other respectively since 1990.

The original plan for acquiring the tablet was for it to be stolen from Will's bag at the boat dock.

It's not actually awful or even bad per se, but it's worse.. yes it's mediocrity defined! It's predictable, rather boring and all the best parts have been shown in the trailers. Dwayne Johnson is good, but can't save this. Sorry!
