Poor copy of Die Hard, which was a much better movie. So preposterous I could never suspend disbelief.

It was a bit entertaining, but a bit silly at the same time. Not much of a plot, just fast pace action and sound. I did fall asleep for 20 minuets during the middle of the movie. Asked Barbara if I missed anything and she said not really. I would say the average age of viewer for this movie would be around 23 years old. Defiantly not for a senior that has seen lots of movies over the years and has many good ones to compare it too and that is why I give it a 2 1/2 star rating. To me most movies are a 3 and the ones that go on and get lots of awards are the 5's.

Not gonna lie - this movie was really good. Entertaining, non-stop action all the time. Realistic - no, but lots of fun. Would recommend it!!!

Reminiscient of the disaster movies of the 1970's, like Towering Inferno, but with focus on a very small cast. Action, effects, heroism, but pure escapism.

My copy stopped playing during the last 30 minutes, gotta love Pueblo, where they treat their library services like they treat their city... like shit!

Started out good but been downhill fast. Someone commented that the last 15 mins were the best. Well, I didn't get that far. When he began to climb the grids, to point of being ridiculous, I shut off. Expected a lot more out of the movie than was given; disappointed.

Edge of your seat thriller.
Dwayne Johnson is clearly the Best!

This movie does what it says on the box. It's not great art but if you're looking for something entertaining with high production values and big explosions that won't make you think too hard, this fits the bill. The bad guy has an accent, there are death defying leaps, ludicrous escapes, and some pretty good fight choreography. And Neve Campbell is the MVP, imho.

Fell asleep, tried again the next day, still couldn't hold my attention. Not a Die Hard remake, a Die Hard rip off. So sad, as Johnson is much too good to keep getting caught in bad movies.
