Dwayne Johnsons new movie Skyscraper has left many a person scratching their noggins as to how the eff he does certain things.

And one stunt in particular has left people on the edge of their skyscrapers, though, as they

Dwayne himself even proclaimed the whole shebang stupid, as he tied a flimsy piece of rope around his waist and proceeded to scale a, you guessed it, skyscraper, in his latest film.

A film that already appeared to be one giant, massive action-fest of massive flippin proportions.

How on earth did The Rock find himself in such a situation?

Dwayne Johnson's latest stunt is 'stupid' - he even says so

After working for the FBI, following an incident where he lost part of his leg Dwaynes character Will Sawyer takes a new job assessing safety of high rise buildings – which takes him to The Pearl in Hong Kong.



Which is a ruddy tall building.

And at 240 floors up, its on fire and apparently the only way out is by smashing the window with some sort of antique monument.

As he prepared to scale the side to almost certain death for anyone who isnt Dwayne Johnson, he said to himself: This is stupid.

And, yeah, we have to agree.

Because as he comes across this giant fan in the side of the building, he times it perfectly to make it through…until it explodes and he plummets to the ground below (where numerous bystanders are gawking and gasping).

However, hes saved when his prosthetic leg snags in the rope.

Of course.

Fans are salivating at the whole thing, though, as they reacted to the latest trailer that featured the clip.

One felt the whole thing was just a bit full on, as they said: My man! Unrealistic but always entertaining!

Another added: Dwyane Johnson says this is stupid. Hes brave man and hes here to save the day!

Another simply said: This is stupid.

Still, the criticism of whether or not that stunt is even possible is bound to do nada for the box office, with the action tipped to be mighty popular.

Skyscraper is in theatres 13 July.
