Mission: Impossible meets the The Towering Inferno in this disaster/action yarn in which Dwayne Johnson goes to ridiculous lengths to save his family from a burning super-skyscraper. As any Hollywood aficionado knows, American family values are stronger than the elements, not to speak of super-evil villains. The film boasts impressive production values and some entertaining action sequences, most notably whenever Johnson goes out on a ledge, but unfortunately, the entertainment value shrinks in accordance with the escalating silliness. Writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber has got no feel for anything interpersonal. He directs like a runaway train. And the ludicrous acting among some of the supporting players makes Johnson's whole-hearted lead performance look quite good.
