critics consensus

Harrison Ford's rote performance brings little to this uninspired techno-heist film whose formulaic plot is befuddled with tedious and improbable twists. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Firewall

  • Oct 28, 2011
    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.

    I ws amazed how good this movie was. Harrison Ford plays the bank security expert who designs security on computer systems. When his family are being held hostage by som ruthless criminals he is forced to find a flaw in the system and transfer 100 million dollars to the criminals, if not his family's lives is at risk. It's now up to him to find a way to beat these criminals without losing his family.
