Skyscraper is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber(Easy A) and stars actor Dwayne Johnson.
The film is about a former FBI agent and amputee Will Sawyer who lives with his family in the safest and tallest building in the world, the Pearl, located in Hong Kong. Will is the head of security for the building and is told the building is the safest. The building comes under attack by terrorists and he finds himself taking desperate actions. Later, he finds out the attacks were framed against him.
I'm not sure what to make of this movie. I'm just so use to seeing Dwayne Johnson in so many other movies. At the end of his acting career, he will probably be known as the actor who could fill any role in any movie. Anyways, filming took place in Hong Kong and British Columbia. The Pearl is obviously a fictional building, and is completely CGI and green screen. Also, the part where he runs on the crane and jumps is obviously green screen but the crane is real and was filmed in Washington Studios, North Vancouver. I wouldn't be surprised if Dwayne Johnson could do that jump in real life.
