Dwayne Johnson in ‘Skyscraper’

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can’t let a summer pass without saving the world. Or some iconic corner of it. In Skyscraper he’s in Hong Kong. His wife (Neve Campbell) and kids are stuck in the world’s tallest tower — a mega-phallus built by a semi-mad Asian — and he’s the building’s security consultant. He’s out when it catches fire, so has to get back in. But cops are chasing him (don’t ask); he’s only got one leg (same again); and time is running out. Also, a team of foreign-accented villains drafted from Die Hard, but sadly not including Alan Rickman, are inside killing people.

The effects are grand. The script is less so. The plot improbabilities reach critical mass and explode. By then fireballs are coming out of your ears and eyes. Best to send a friend first, in flame-retardant clothing, and ask him or her if this block-burner written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, previously known for comedy (We’re the Millers, Dodgeball), is worth your time and ticket money.
