Harrison Ford is outshone by his costars in this crisp, conventional thriller.

The movie gets a lift from Mary Lynn Rajskub in a glamorized version of her nerd's wet dream Chloe on 24, which is also better this year with the Chloe quotient pumped up.

A solid ensemble almost saves Firewall, but, in the end, it goes up in campy flames.

March 24, 2007 Full Review Source: UGO

Director Richard Loncraine shows no affinity for the nuts and bolts of constructing thrillers, playing out the script's empty threats and chases at a lethargic pace.

There is an air of desperation about Firewall, a sense that Ford needed to make this movie just to keep his face in the public eye, lest we think he had fallen off the planet altogether.

...it's always good to see Ford back in action mode. He lifts a routine film out of total mediocrity by his very presence.

The characters spend a lot of time hunched over keyboards tap-tap-tapping away, which isn't all that suspenseful to watch.

It runs along a time-worn path at a leisurely pace and holds few surprises.

A formulaic, it'll-do action-thriller, Firewall does what you'd expect it to well enough but fails to fully exploit the skills of its talented cast -- particularly the leading man.

Something of a throwback to the Harrison Ford thrillers of the 90s, this is an average thriller with the occasional fun moment.

Not that [Harrison Ford] deserves our sympathy. The increasingly wrinkly veteran seems determined to age gracelessly, taking roles he's clearly too old for in a desperate attempt to maintain his leading man status.

Harrison Ford isn't exactly the kind of guy you might envision as a computer expert, but then again he did make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs

March 16, 2006 Full Review Source: Los Angeles CityBeat

A generic, rudimentary thriller but shows there is still life left in the old Ford. Madsen, though, needs to beware the 'Curse of Harrison.'

The filmmakers seem too committed to a PG-13 rating, so they don't take any real risks with the kids -- commendable on the one hand, but deadly to the thriller on the other.

What might've helped matters would have been a little touch of creativity on the script end, with most every turn seen coming a mile away, and maybe even more importantly, more interference from the secondary players who are completely wasted here.

Audience Reviews for Firewall

Firewall is a cliché riddled action thriller that doesn't do anything to thrill or entertain you. Firewall is actually quite boring, and the concept, though somewhat intriguing, fails to be thrilling. Firewall disappointed me and I was hoping for something better than this. Unfortunately the film ends up falling flat, and is very, poorly conceived. Harrison Ford seems bored in the role he's playing, and the story is clumsy, poorly constructed, and like I said relies on Clichés to create the so called thrills and tension. Firewall is one of the worst thrillers that I've seen in the last couple of years, and the film suffers from a poor script that doesn't have a well developed story, and the end result is a film that is very anti-climactic. The film is pretty boring, and the cast, despite the fact that they are talented, are fairly wasted here. Firewall is a poorly conceived film that isn't good and it really does fail at delivering the thrills. The film could have been much better than, and it had the potential of being a solid action thriller, unfortunately the film falls through halfway in, and there are no redeeming factors to redeem the weak plot and poorly constructed ideas. If you're looking for a solid thriller film, then Firewall is not that film. There are better films out there. Firewall is an uninspired film that relies on a derivative formula to thrill its audience. A very boring, and unimpressive film that could have been much better than this. This was a film that looked promising, but turned out to be a big disappointment. Avoid this if you're looking for a good thriller, you won't find it here.

While it is nowhere near Harrison Ford's best attempt, it is a fun movie and highly entertaining. It has beautiful visuals and decent performances. The plot was actually pretty interesting and a different kind of heist attempt.
