Trivia

At the beginning of the movie, The Pearl and the Victoria Harbour in the back 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 the other since 1990. See more »

Goofs

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 »

It's pretty much what you expect it to be
16 July 2018 | by dkwestbrookSee all my reviews

Pretty much all action movies are the same. This is pretty much the same movie as Rampage (which also had Dwayne Johnson in it) and that only came out a couple of months ago. Is this a good movie? Not really, but it's fairly entertaining. It's exactly what you expect to be. High-octane, action-packed, funny and actually pretty enjoyable for the most part. I wouldn't go out of your to see it, but you won't be disappointed either, as long as you check your expectations first. It's not art, but it's not trash either.
