Thrillers aren't just about action and surprises, they're about fear and fury. And for a film with fire in the title, you expect a lot more heat.

Firewall gives us little reason to bestow deeper meaning on what is essentially a pre-owned Ford vehicle.

An efficient time-passer at least until the plot starts obsessing over the fate of the family dog.

A rehash of plots from other movies that weren't that good to begin with.

No matter how accomplished the performers, it's difficult to make tapping on a keyboard and staring at computer screens exciting.

Harrison Ford is now 63, but he's every bit as spry as a 62-year-old.

Harrison Ford returns to the big screen in a mediocre action thriller, a joy to watch but nevertheless miscast in a blatant exploitation of his fan base.

Put Alan Thicke in the lead role of Firewall and, without changing one line of dialogue, the flick would debut at 9pm Eastern on ABC's Movie of the Week.

February 3, 2006
Both dutifully formulaic and brazen in its willingness exploit in-jeopardy elements just short of the horror-film threshold, such barriers might prevent audiences from savoring an otherwise old-fashioned thriller.
February 16, 2006
This is one of the dopiest plans in the history of evil genius plans.
February 8, 2006
Having once vehemently ordered Russian hijackers to "Get off my plane!," Harrison Ford can't even get a few techie terrorists out of his living room in Firewall.

February 10, 2006
Ford is back in action, albeit a little more slowly and cautiously than before, and in the service of a plot that is ludicrous and predictable (if still blandly diverting).

February 10, 2006
As a routine thriller Firewall is barely functional, but as a waste of talent, it's positively amazing.

February 9, 2006
Firewall, a thrill-challenged thriller starring Harrison Ford, manages to entertain mildly only because it gives moviegoers ample opportunity to test their action-movie I.Q.

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.

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.'

This lackluster effort starring a very dour Harrison Ford fails to engage the audience.

The movie is so disposable that you won't remember you've seen it.
Full Review | Original Score: D
February 10, 2006
Firewall is the flaming arrow of truth that Harrison Ford is fully in the throes of what worried scientists are calling the De Niro Syndrome.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 9, 2006
Harrison Ford needs a better agent. Or a sharper pair of reading glasses for perusing scripts. He just seems to keep choosing the same tired heroic roles, and ends up coming across as a caricature of his younger self.
