Giving it your brain's attention is like putting your card in a gleaming ATM slot and then being told: "Sorry, because of a fault . . . "

There's only so much Ford's ever-game efforts can do to dress up dreck.
April 29, 2009
Such a vapid vehicle for every single cast member that it's difficult to actually enjoy.
April 20, 2009
The movie is so disposable that you won't remember you've seen it.
May 30, 2007
Another edge-of-your-seat, roller coaster ride from a matinee idol everybody loves to root for.
March 24, 2007
A solid ensemble almost saves Firewall, but, in the end, it goes up in campy flames.
March 1, 2007
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.
October 7, 2006
Harrison Ford is outshone by his costars in this crisp, conventional thriller.
September 22, 2006
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.
June 24, 2006
Its formulaic moves seem particuarly tired.
May 31, 2006
...it's always good to see Ford back in action mode. He lifts a routine film out of total mediocrity by his very presence.
May 12, 2006
The characters spend a lot of time hunched over keyboards tap-tap-tapping away, which isn't all that suspenseful to watch.
May 12, 2006
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.
May 3, 2006
It runs along a time-worn path at a leisurely pace and holds few surprises.
April 1, 2006
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.
March 30, 2006
Something of a throwback to the Harrison Ford thrillers of the 90s, this is an average thriller with the occasional fun moment.
March 21, 2006
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.
March 16, 2006
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 14, 2006
A generic, rudimentary thriller but shows there is still life left in the old Ford. Madsen, though, needs to beware the 'Curse of Harrison.'
March 11, 2006
O roteiro atravessa a fronteira do ridculo no terceiro ato.
