4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting thriller, 24 Jun 2007
This review is from: Firewall [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Why all the bad reviews?

I nearly didn't watch this, but I am glad I did.

You get what you expect. An exciting thriller.

It kept my family entertained for the duration. Sure the plot might be implausible in places, but so many thrillers today stretch credibility.

I think the plot holds together well and, for most of the movie, has you wondering how Harrison Ford is going to get out this when the crooks have all the angles covered.

Give it a go. It's no where near as dire as some reviews claim. If you're a Harrison Ford fan, you'll like it anyway!

A strange argument Dodster - it's like saying - okay it's bad but so are other films. But you can get good thrillers that don't stretch credibility so much - you even review some of them yourself. It's inexcusable of film-makers to come up with unrealistic tosh time and again - aren't there enough good thrillers in novel format for them to use as the basis for a good film? Of course there are, but my belief is that in 'development-time' something happens to reduce everything down to media-land exploitation. Everything gets "Hollywoodised" and that's the end of credibility.
