Skyscraper picture Video

Plot hole: The entire plot hinges on the villain's gang obtaining the tablet that allows admin access to the building's systems. However, it can only be unlocked via facial recognition and it is keyed only to Will Sawyer's face. In fact, when they finally do get it, Xia unlocks it by holding it up to Sawyer's face. So what was the point of trying to steal the backpack containing the tablet? Without Will to unlock it, the tablet is useless.

Suggested correction: It doesn't happen on screen. We don't see how she even kills them. It's not shown how she got their bodies up there and she could have accomplished this by any number of means.
