America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, comes to power and conducts an experiment: no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one has to stay on the island, but $5,000 is given to anyone who does.
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
At the beginning of the film the building description stipulates that the accommodation is above the garden levels (floors 100 - 130). Meaning accommodation starts on floor 131. However Sawyer's family accommodation is on level 98. This falls 33 floors below where it should. However at the time the 'Accommodation levels' weren't cleared for use yet (or possibly even finished, considering some of the areas Will was in [just after entering the building] were still under construction) and had 'No Access' beside their description, so it's entirely possible that the family were using executive accommodations on the upper levels of the retail area, rather than an apartment in the restricted zone. After all, who needs 70 floors of retail shops? (or 60 floors of Restaurants for that matter) See more »

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!
