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.Written by
The prologue's location is near Duluth, Minnesota. A Duluth Police squad car and a Minnesota State Trooper squad car are parked near each other and are briefly seen before Will Sawyer is first shown. See more »
The technicians at the offsite facility are killed by eager henchmen using machine guns. Yet, the majority of the computer equipment is not damaged/destroyed. However the men were firing downward at short range (1 to 4 meters (3-13 feet)), from an elevated position, so unless they were completely inept they'd have no trouble hitting the technicians while missing most of the monitors. Also, the only 'Computer equipment' visible are the monitors, keyboards and phones (there's not even a mouse visible). Probably because the workstations were mounted UNDER the desks (there's certainly none visible ON the desks), and they'd only be dumb terminals anyway, only used to access the mainframe system in the other room.

When the title is shown on screen in the opening credits, it's shown vertically alongside the Pearl building. This also happens in the end credits. See more »
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!
