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

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

...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.

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

...serviceable if entirely uninspired...

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.

Firewall is barely worth seeing, despite its above-average cast.

Though Firewall isn't Ford's best work, it's satisfying to see he can still carry an action film.

As thrillers go, this is definitely worth a matinee.

Despite straining credulity, it's surprisingly tense and well-paced.

Firewall is mostly fast-paced and absorbing, at least it until it goes balls-to-the-walls dumb in the third act.

The suspense, tension and thrills may not stop your heart, but they'll certainly rev it up a bit.

The film is precise, square and in many regards beat-perfect - in other words, the perfect movie to skip in theaters and enjoy somewhere down the road as a rainy-weekend rental or background-noise friend while paying some bills.

For those who enjoy big dumb fun every now and again to clear out the senses, Firewall offers some terrific entertainment in the moments before it begins to confuse itself.

If you're expecting an intricate techno-thriller, that's not what this is. This is one of those high concept thrillers where they milk a limited situation to a ridiculous degree. As such, it's great fun.

Bettany is a perfect 21st Century bad guy as he mixes nastiness with a detached coolness that makes you shudder at its cruelty.
