'Skyscraper' (Jul. 13)
No, Dwayne Johnson doesn't play the title role. But unlike Rampage and a handful of other escapist fantasies in which The Rock isn't required to do much more than show up and turn on the charm, Skyscraper requires the star to, y'know, act. As a war vet with an amputated leg, Johnson is a man in crisis, a security specialist on assignment in China. It's there that he must save the world's tallest building (240 floors) from burning to the ground before his family dies in the blaze and he's locked up for allegedly causing the whole thing. Fans are not accustomed to seeing Johnson show fear or vulnerability. Check it out.
