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.

Director Richard Loncraine appears to have taken all his cues from the dog.

Firewall offers nothing new nor original. It is a retread, formulaic to the nth degree, with every cliché telegraphed reels ahead of when they occur.

The film is pretty much what you would expect %u2013 a formulaic, predictable plot and Ford cast as everyman who does impossible things%u2026 Ford looks as though he is trying too hard %u2013 he is too wide-eyed and too fraught.

Indiana Jones 4 is a terrible idea, but might we suggest a remake of On Golden Pond as an alternate?

By the time this match of wits reaches the inevitable mano-a-mano final showdown, viewers will probably have become weary from all of the incoherent plot twists and ludicrous contrivances.

I really, REALLY like Harrison Ford. And that's why I really, REALLY wanted to like "Firewall."

If I hadn't seen Ford at his grimmest in Firewall, I would have never found out how you can steal $100 million from a bank simply by using an iPod and a little scotch tape.

If Ford's character is too much like the ones he played in Patriot Games and The Fugitive, at least Firewall restores his status of everyday action hero.

The best that can be said about the predictable 'Firewall' is its showcasing of the patented action-Ford.

You've seen this movie a dozen times.

Solid escapist entertainment, equal parts silly and smart.

February 16, 2006
An overblown, unrelenting movie that tries to disguise its ludicrous plot with enough technical jargon to make it all appear feasible.
February 16, 2006
This is one of the dopiest plans in the history of evil genius plans.
February 15, 2006
Firewall feels like other movies we've seen starring the same actor...It feels like Harrison Ford is phoning in his performance this time.

Firewall is barely worth seeing, despite its above-average cast.
February 15, 2006
This high tech thriller starts out speaking to some hot topics in the headlines but quickly descends into a far-fetched crime drama.
