Having suffered an over rated Bollywood dud called Dhadak just 48 hours ago. I walked into this one with minimal expectations. Probably the reason why I was reasonably entertained. Sure you will see shades of Inferno or Die Hard in it. So while the premise of people trapped in a building remains at the root of this movie too it is surely presented a little different.
The building is a tech marvel and hides some important stuff which the bad guys want. No am not telling you what it is though it might not be hard for you to guess mid way of the movie yet it will qualify as a spoiler if I were to talk about that. The story also revolves around the family of Will Sawyer who is the security top boss for the building and his family comes unwittingly in the way of the evil gang and is trapped inside a burning building.
Dwayne Johnson is as usual good. The movie is just about 93 odd minutes so while it never really bores you. There are some reasonably well written moments like the one in which Johnson jumps into the building or the one where the family tries to cross through a make shift bridge. The best moment is when the bad guy is eliminated by Johnson.
The building is reasonably impressively built and Chin Han makes some impression as the guy who owns the gigantic structure.
the movie is not a classic for sure nor something for which you will probably plan and get into the theater. However if you are inside one multiplex and want to kill some time then at least this one is a far better choice than the over rated drag that has been released from Bollywood.
