Product Description

Product Description

Thriller starring Harrison Ford as Jack Stanfield, an average family man in Seattle who heads up the hi-tech security team at his local bank. But following a seemingly trivial case of identity theft, Jack's life is turned upside down when his wife (Virginia Madsen) and two children are kidnapped. The ransom is $100 million, which the kidnappers, led by Bill Cox (Paul Bettany), want Jack to obtain for them via his expert computer skills. Initially compliant, Jack is soon irked by Cox and his cronies to the point where he decides to risk everything to get his family back and bring the bad guys to justice.

From Amazon.co.uk

Harrison Ford, bluntly, has seen better days. While once again he gives a tough, gruff performance in the leading role of a Hollywood thriller, the material around him in the case of Firewall is a far cry from what we used to expect of one of Hollywood's most enduring leading men.

It's still fun in its own way, though. Ford is the leader of the technical security team at his local bank, and finds his life is turned upside down when firstly his identity is compromised, and then his family are kidnapped. The kidnappers, led by Paul Bettany (A Beautiful Mind, Wimbledon) swiftly demand his help to extract $100m, only for Ford to gradually become more and more reluctant to play ball, with predictably fractious results.

It's a fairly by-the-numbers plot at work here, temporarily livened by some interesting set pieces and decent performances by the cast. Yet an unfocused script and an overblown running time mean the film amounts to being little more than a throwaway thriller, ideal fodder for an easy night-in, assuming you've no wish to remember much about it the morning after. By Ford's own standards, that's not great, but it's the best that's on offer here. --Simon Brew --This text refers to the DVD edition.

In ancient times, kings would have everyone who constructed their primary defenses killed, and that was undeniably a pretty effective way of keeping anyone from discovering a backdoor entry into the castle. Obviously, things have changed a great deal since then, but it's still a fact that the biggest potential threat to any leader, company, or business is the guy who designed the security system. Crooks are well aware of this very thing, which brings us to the movie Firewall.

Harrison Ford plays Jack Stanfield, the network security chief at a medium-sized bank. After spending many years doing everything he can to protect his customers' data, he suddenly finds himself on the other side of the firewall when crooks take his wife and children hostage and demand he help them steal the bank blind by transferring a cool hundred million out of the accounts of its wealthiest customers. With his loved ones' lives on the line, he has little choice but to comply with their demands. Kept under constant surveillance and oftentimes accompanied by one of the conspirators, he has to go about his daily business, acting as if everything is fine, while trying to figure out the best way of bypassing his own security setup. Eventually, of course, he fights back, setting the stage for a rather action-packed ending.

The whole robbery plan is pretty darned elaborate. These guys would have needed to rob another bank just to be able to afford all of the equipment they put to use on this job. I definitely would have asked for more than 100 million dollars if I was the one who put the whole plan together.

Say what you will about the film's lack of originality, but I found Firewall to be a pretty exhilarating thriller.

It was a nice film. Could have been better.
As someone with an interest in computers, I was looking forward to the release of this movie for quite a while. Seeing Harrsion Ford in the cast of a movie typically guarantees at least a minimum standard of quality. I couldn't help feeling somewhat underwhelmed by it's progression.
It's basically standard fare with the usual chases and action fight sequences.
The storyline isn't spectacular or out of the ordinary, so that won't be something you would want to watch the movie for.
What initially interested me was the entire computer security angle. Turned out to be a disappointment as I found the movie to be less on computer security and more of action and drama.
But, I will be honest to point out that the storyline turned out to be really interesting in the second half. Well, it didn't diverge from the existing theme but Paul's entire plan makes it interesting and makes you appreciate its ingenuity.

It is a one time watch.

Unrealistic and slow moving for an action film. This is basically an office drama for the first hour, while Harrison Ford frowns during phone calls and in front of computer screens. Despite the film being LAME it is sort of enjoyable in a predictable colour by numbers action kind of way. I watched this with a friend because it was leaving Amazon, and we both agreed the dog was the best actor in the whole thing.

I enjoyed watching this movie simply because I am a Harrison Ford fan, although I agree to certain extent with the other reviewers, concerning the pridictability of the story line, and the weak plot, but just imagine; you are watching this movie some years ago being acted by the then younger "Ford"...I am sure every one would have gone mad about it! Though I wish if "Ford" would now move to act his age. Having said that I still feel this was a very watchable movie and deserves four stars

Just watched this film and thought it was much better than I expected. I have seen all Harrison Ford's previous films and this is as good as them. It was a bit predictable but very enjoyable all the same. The action was brilliant and so were the family scenes. It has all been done before but there a lot of films worse than this out there.

I am fed up with films showing unnecessary levels of violence and excessive bad language. This is an action thriller worth watching, well acted and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Watch it.

The only surprising thing about this film is the amazing cell phone and wireless coverage, everywhere, including in the wilderness. Considering that such wonders still don't exist and the film is from 2006, it is more Sci-Fi than thriller. 'Frantic' or 'Witness' it ain't. However, that this cyber-paranoia yarn isn't much of anything isn't ultimately a surprise. It even has an English baddy! How original. < - Spoiler Alert !!! - > And a happy ending.

This is my second viewing of this movie having previously watched the DVD and it was just as good the second time around. Harrison Ford plays the character of the banker whose family is being held hostage very well but the real star performance here is Bettany as the head of the criminal gang trying to steal $100million. Although it differs from your regular heist/hostage movie by using technology rather than going in all guns blazing it doesn't fail to let up on the action, with rarely a dull moment. Characters are developed reasonably well for the genre and the dialogue was also sufficient. The supporting cast, including Alan Arkin, Robert Forster and Mary-Lynn Rajskub also put in decent performances and are well cast in their roles. 3.5/5
