There's only so much Ford's ever-game efforts can do to dress up dreck.

Such a vapid vehicle for every single cast member that it's difficult to actually enjoy.

The movie is so disposable that you won't remember you've seen it.

Another edge-of-your-seat, roller coaster ride from a matinee idol everybody loves to root for.

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

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.

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

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.

Its formulaic moves seem particuarly tired.

...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 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.

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

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

O roteiro atravessa a fronteira do ridículo no terceiro ato.

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.
