" Everything He loves Is About To Be Used Against Him. "

A security specialist is forced into robbing the bank that he's protecting, as a bid to pay off his family's ransom. Firewall (2006) is one of those films that in my mind i remember as the ultimate thriller unfortunately it really doesn't hold up as i remember it but that doesn't mean that it's a bad film it's actually pretty damn entertaining and it all has to do with the fact that Harrison Ford and Paul Bettany starred in it because both men are truly great in this film Ford is more of the computer guy he is smart and he does try to find a way out for both himself and his family and Bettany is ruthless and cold blooded and he won't stop at nothing until he gets his money. Virginia Madsen is also very good as Ford's wife and i was surprised that legendary T2 actor Robert Patrick starred in this movie as well and although his role is limited it's still quite great the same goes for Alan Arkin. The suspense starts really early in the film but that is where the problems also started the rest of the crew that Bettany has with him were kinda forgettable except maybe Nikolaj Coaster- Waldau he was decent, the action takes some time to get where it needs to go but the final battle between Ford and the robbers was pretty cool it reminded me a bit of Air Force and Patriot Games without being as good as those 2 films of course and last but not least there are moments that could have been avoided maybe? For example that Church scene? it didn't mash up well with the rest of the movie in my opinion but overall if you can pass on some of it's flaws 'Firewall' is quite of a fun film. (7.5/10)

Watchable

This is one of those movies that I found watchable but felt that it could have been so much better. The movie begins well and the suspense and terror is maintained at about the right level. All the acting is good and I genuinely wanted it to end well. However the way it ended was what let this movie down. It does seem Hollywood scriptwriters have a problem ending movies well but this one got very silly in parts. Harrison Ford's character behaved pretty much as you would expect of a man who's family were in danger, until the end when he seemed to forget all about them and go off on a chase that made little sense. I won't elaborate in case you decide to watch it but for me it spoiled what could have been an excellent movie.

An atrocious piece of trash full of unorignality, clichés and dreadful writing.

(Originally reviewed: 18/02/2017) I've seen these a dozen times, were my first thoughts after the first two acts; but by the end I was depressingly bored with it's by the numbers clichés and constant lack of originality. Harrison Ford is the only one who even tries in the film and even he looks like he's bored at times; most of the other performances are either forgettable or pay check worthy; take Paul Bettany for example who plays the so called 'mastermind' behind this hostage situation, he has the same expression throughout up until a fight scene requires him to actually act like he cares; the rest of the cast which also includes Virginia Madsen, Robert Forster and Robert Patrick also phone it in; with the exception of Forster of course; but then again he barely gets any screen time in this film.

The dialogue is astoundingly awful at times; this includes Bettany telling one of his henchman "You're a criminal, not an executive", and an even worse one where Ford yells "What do you want" and Bettany says "I want to get you home, its pizza night". Who on earth thought this was acceptable or decent dialogue. Later on lines such as "Open Sesame" are also said; and I kept thinking where have I heard this before; and the answer might be back when it was actually new.

The script is oh so predictable with a typical escape attempt that was clearly going to fail; but if you're going to be clichéd; you might as well include an attempted escape. Bettany's character is also sick and pointless, tells the kid with a nut allergy that there's no peanuts in the biscuits; guess what? There was; as you see him nearly lose his life; I knew that the guy was lying and this particular scene is cruel and pointless, it had no reason to be there. Another thing I noticed was another unbelievable moment where Ford's character fires his secretary because Bettany doesn't like the way she looks at him, not only is this highly unlikeable to happen in real life, it's yet again another stupid moment; in a fairly pointless film. Richard Loncraine's direction isn't even good with no memorable either, its standard mediocrity, which one would expect from a director films.

Firewall suffers from its predictability, and all round boring writing; I never felt thrilled, excited or surprised; it has every cliché in the book combined with mostly forgettable performances and a typical third act that results in your usual action sequence, but even that managed to be boring; this film is a one note, unoriginal piece of trash.
