Closely related to The Towering Inferno - Movies are both about the tallest building in the world. Both buildings have a business lower half and a residential upper half. Upper half of each building is destroyed by fire. Helicopters explode on or near the roof. 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 »
Kinda Ok..Good movie, Just a little Over the top Action
After seeing Rock's last "Rampage" outing, I was charged for this movie. And this movie delivered what I was expecting. But it delivered a little over the top.
The script had great idea, and the filmmakers executed perfectly, but they should have toned it down a little bit. It would have been a great movie if the action standards should have treated realistically.
But end of the day, it was entertaining, just like in the 80's, 90's disaster action movies.
-After getting realistic action scenes, the director treats Rock as a Superhero character with superhuman DC/Marvel strength (yes he's an action star, but this is not the 80's Stallone Arnold era).
-Unrealistic plot holes.
The Rock himself, I think this is his first time he portraying a handicapped character.
