Harrison Ford, plays Jack Stanfield, a bank executive, and developer of the most current software for Pacific Landrock Bank. The bank is due to merge with a huge conglomerate purportedly to enhance business and increase assets. Jack has conservative views regarding risk-taking and protecting the assets of customers. This strong stance stood him well for 20 years but places him in a dimlight with the new owners at the board meeting who are willing to risk the money of customers for future earnings. He is introduced to several high level entrepeneurs and associates believed to be associated with the new firm. The meeting is occuring right about when the banking network is being attacked by computer hackers who invaded Jack's home and are holding his family hostage.

The unexpected break in to Jack's house begins the tension that keeps mounting as more details are revealed regarding the reason for the kidnapping. Jack's wife, daughter and young son are threatened with physical harm ... the team of five stop at nothing to get what they want. Jack understands the seriousness of their threats when Bill Cox the leader, shoots one of his own men in the head after he failed to follow directions and nearly foiled their plans. He proved his point: Jack agreed to do what they wanted -- break into his bank's software, override the firewall, and transfer money to an account in the Cayman Islands. His wife and children nearly manage an escape before they are caught and sent back into confinement. Bill Cox punishes Jack by letting Jack's son almost die of an allergic reaction to peanuts ... The family realizes, they know too much to be allowed to live if Bill Cox and his team manage the money transfer ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Firewall February 20, 2006
Jack Stanfield (Ford) is head of bank security at a bank on the brink of a merger. Bill Cox (Bettany) is a businessman that, after a business meeting with JAck, makes Jack an offer. If Jack helps Bill rob the bank of $100 million, Bill will let Jack's family live. He has taken them all hostage, and is pulling Jack's strings to accomplish the task. OF course, Bill is less than trustworthy, and Jack soon finds himself in a no-win situation as the crimes start to point to him.

"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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great thriller though not extremely original... February 2, 2008
By S. Dahl
Format:DVD
I first of all want to say that in this case 3/5 stars is in no way meant to say this movie is bad at all. I couldn't in good conscience give it 4 stars though as I reserve that for movies which are almost classic. I rented Firewall without knowing much about it besides that I generally like Harrison Ford as an actor and a person (besides some recent lifestyle decisions, I actually think he's a decent respectable guy compared to many of the emerging faces in Hollywood...) I haven't seen many of his films I haven't liked, besides Hollywood Homicide and K-19 Widowmaker (I actually semi-enjoyed 6 Days 7 Nights) and hadn't heard much about this one and I wanted to watch something I hadn't seen yet, so my wife and I rented it. We were both pleasantly surprised by this movie. It is an example of a good thriller. It lacked any type of sexuality, didn't have extreme violence, and had just a little bad language (there is an F word). This is refreshing considering how crude so many movies are today. The pacing of the movie was great. It started out quickly and was tense throughout. Unlike many movies, you actually cared about the characters and their fates and you actually hated the bad guy (played very well by Paul Bettany). The ending was abrupt and I would have liked to have seen a little bit more of a wind-down, showing the characters in the aftermath of a traumatic event, but the ending was pretty typical for this type of movie. All in all, Firewall doesn't tread much new ground, it isn't going to win an award, and it probably won't be remembered much 10 years from now, but it is a good Harrison Ford film, it is good entertainment, it is exciting, and worth at least a rental. I wouldn't call this one of my favorite movies ever, but did thoroughly enjoy it and would recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing August 22, 2006
Format:DVD
I expect better from a movie starring Harrison Ford. He is forced to steal from the bank he works for because a high tech criminal has kidnapped his family. It doesn't go smoothly because recent changes has been made so Ford has to think quick on his feet. As expected, Ford saves his family due to a fortunate circumstance.

I found the plot trite and there was only a couple of mildly exciting scenes. I suggest skipping this dud.

2.0 out of 5 stars Formulaic Ford May 9, 2006
By Aleksey
Format:DVD
As much as I love Harrison Ford's acting, this movie is not all that entertaining. It is an uninspired, by-the-numbers execution of a plot which was done much better in Bruce Willis' "Hostage" and numerous other films. There are no surprises or innovations along the way - it just goes on and on, and on, until it runs out of recycled plot devices, and, mercifully, ends.
