When you love a star you really don’t bother about the negative reports coming on his big movie release. Same is the situation with our beloved Dwayne Johnson’s Skyscraper. Like most of his films “Skyscraper” has been marked down by the critics and the movie doesn’t stand tall in the eyes of the neutral audience. Despite all early reviews and speculations of lifetime business of the film, no one can deny the fact that Dwayne Johnson is a universal superstar and the Skyscraper does have the potential to pick up in coming days.

Synopsis for the Dwayne Johnson’s Skyscraper 

Dwayne Johnson would be seen playing Will Sawyer, who is a security expert and his wife’s role is being played by Neve Campbell. The couple is blessed with the twins, McKenna Grace and Noah Cortell.

Will Sawyer has a back story. He was an extremely talented Marine and an FBI Cop. 10 years ago, He was leading a mission for hostage negotiation, however, the ploy didn’t go as planned and Will Sawyer lost his left leg in a bomb blast. The incident had a deep impact on Will Sawyer’s life and he had to think of reviving his career. He takes the job of a security specialist and moves to Hong Kong as a security consultant of the Skyscraper -The Pearl.

The pearl is a humungous 200 stories building. It’s immensely tall, beautiful and eye-catching. The building has been conceptualized by Zhao Long Ji.

A unit of villains attacked The Pearl and it causes a big chaos. The problem with the segment is McGiffinies of   McGuffins which the antagonists want to capture. What they want to steal, has not been explained.

Will Sawyer’s family is stuck in this attack and he would perform every possible heroic stunt to take the family out of this mess.

Positives to count from The Rock’s Skyscraper.

  1. Dwayne Johnson justifies his talent as an impactful action hero. He is dangling from one corner to the other to show his potential. Not only this, he would appear as an intelligent security expert. He is capable of using every tiny object for his purpose.
  2. Neve Campbell is simply terrific in her role. She deserves an applause for playing Dwayne Johnson’s wife with a great intensity.
  3. Skyscraper has been tagged as a copy of Die Hard. When you watch the film you never get surrounded by any such feeling.


Box Office report for Dwayne Johnson’s Skyscraper.

Dwayne Johnson’s Skyscraper was not a solo release for last Friday. The Rock’s film got released with Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation and Sorry to bother you. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation emerges out as a clear winner as the film tops the Box office chart. The film collected over $40 million in the first 3 days.

Ant-Man and The Wasp’s collections dropped heavily by 62%, still, the movie grossed above $29.50 million in the second week.

Dwayne Johnson must be little worried about the first 3 days collections for Skyscraper. The film collected $25.50 million only and came 3rd on the box office chart.


Though Skyscraper could not top the chart still the movie is yet to be released in Asia and this could be a big plus for Dawyne Johnson. He does have a big fan base in Asia and the Middle East.
