"Firewall" is an entertaining thriller. Harrison Ford gets the job done as Jack, although the years are starting to show. Paul Bettany is a solid villain, and is believeable for his brains and toughness. Mary Lynn Rajskub and Virginia Madsen are good in supporting roles. This is not a perfect movie, but it will provide a couple hours of solid enjoyment.
I found the plot trite and there was only a couple of mildly exciting scenes. I suggest skipping this dud.
Of course there have been plenty of movies that are just like this one with so now all this film could hope for is that the cast gives a great performance. The acting is mixed up, those criminals that broke into the Stanfields home who are supposed to be relentless are far from it and that sets the movie back. These guys were getting beaten up and outsmarted by a couple of kids the entire time. Plus the guy from Wimbledon is leading them; the kids were pushing him around like it was nothing. Harrison Ford still has it because his skills are what keep you watching. Most people will have Firewall figured out within a short time. It has a few twists in it but I would advise to just wait for it to come on cable or for one of your friends to rent it because it's really not worth buying. I give it three stars because even though it was predictable there are a couple of parts that are good and Harrison and a few others give a good performance.
