10/7/2006 by Stephanie ZacharekHarrison Ford is outshone by his costars in this crisp, conventional thriller.
6/24/2006 by Trevor JohnstonIts formulaic moves seem particuarly tired.
New York Magazine/Vulture
5/12/2006 by David EdelsteinThe movie gets a lift from Mary Lynn Rajskub in a glamorized version of her nerd's wet dream Chloe on 24, which is also better this year with the Chloe quotient pumped up.
2/16/2006 by Richard SchickelYou've seen this movie a dozen times.
Ebert & Roeper
2/16/2006 by Richard RoeperThis is one of the dopiest plans in the history of evil genius plans.
2/15/2006 by Andrew SarrisFirewall is barely worth seeing, despite its above-average cast.
2/10/2006 by Desson ThomsonAs we watch Ford reprise his trademark mannerisms, we no longer enjoy the ring of familiarity. We just hear the tolling of a bell -- Ford's.
2/10/2006 by Peter HowellFirewall is the flaming arrow of truth that Harrison Ford is fully in the throes of what worried scientists are calling the De Niro Syndrome.
2/10/2006 by Dana StevensFord is definitely hacking his way through something in Firewall, but it's not a computer.
2/10/2006 by Moira MacDonald[A] tense but too often preposterous thriller.
San Francisco Chronicle
2/10/2006 by Mick LaSalleIt's a tricky thing, but an ideal thriller enables an audience to enjoy watching characters suffer. Here, that's difficult.
2/10/2006 by Steven ReaIt's not long before the timely issue of identity theft takes a backseat to old-fashioned Hollywood villainy, unnecessary (and nonsensical) red herrings, and stuff that doesn't make sense.
2/10/2006 by Roger MooreThrillers aren't just about action and surprises, they're about fear and fury. And for a film with fire in the title, you expect a lot more heat.
2/10/2006 by Stephen WhittyThose who don't spend enough time watching computer screens at work, however, can see more of them in Firewall, starring grumpy Harrison Ford as the head of digital security for a mid-sized Seattle bank.
New York Post
2/10/2006 by Lou LumenickExpect the predictable series of attempted double crosses, frame-ups and escape attempts that will be wearyingly familiar to anyone whose seen last year's Hostage.
New York Daily News
2/10/2006 by Jack MathewsFor every movie based on a clever screenplay that takes years to get made, there are a dozen like the formula hostage thriller Firewall.
2/10/2006 by Rene RodriguezFor all its fleeting touches of color, Firewall's main players are stranded in template land.
2/10/2006 by Louis B. ParksIf you're in the mood for a thriller, Firewall will suffice -- barely.
2/10/2006 by Tom LongThis film is so formulaic, so thoroughly what you'd expect that by the time you're done watching it you feel like you've just seen it for the second time.
