"... the Rock rarely seems confident of being able to get out alive. But whatever happens, his sense of humour keeps reminding us that, behind the muscles, he's one of us...
...A roll of duct tape plays a big part in the Rock's array of rescue techniques and there's a similarly old-fashioned, rough-and-ready feel to many of the stunts, despite all of the Pearl's fabulously high-tech accessories and futuristic features."
"At one point, The Rock’s character, Will Sawyer, stares down at his next challenge and says, “This is stupid.” Yes, yes it is.
The story — because there is one and if nothing else, Skyscraper is surprisingly tightly plotted — follows Sawyer, a former Marine and FBI hostage rescuer, who has been hired to assess the security of the world’s tallest skyscraper, the fictional 220-storey The Pearl in Hong Kong."
"The Rock is surely Skyscraper’s rock, but he does at least have fine company in Campbell, whose take-charge supporting part doesn’t merely subscribe to the stock-standard supportive wife stereotype, and makes the case that she should be a much more frequent presence on our screens." link
