This is a very nice, action packed, CGI packed film that anyone would like. The story is great, not full original but great. I went into this film thinking I would be watching an updated Die Hard but no, it wasn’t at all. The bad guys were working for a mob who wanted a device from the billionaire owner not just a simple robbery. The CGI was impressive, they made the Rock look like he really had a prosthetic leg and I kept looking at it during action scenes to see if they made a mistake on it somewhere. This day and age you can’t go wrong putting Dwayne Johnson in a film, guaranteed to make you some money! The acting all around was great. There were a few inconsistencies such as the fact that a billionaire has poured his life and fortune into the structure why would he hand over full control of it to an outside contractor on his tablet but you overlook things like that because the film is good. It was faced paced, not boring. We are introduced to the characters fairly quickly and the story moved along from there. I think you will all be entertained with this one, I certainly was. Great Job.
