Held our attention from start to finish. Harrison Ford still has it!

It's an ordinary day at Landrock Pacific Bank - ordinary for everyone but IT expert Jack Stanfield. His wife and children are held hostage at home. Their kidnappers have one demand: Jack must heist $100 million from the ultra-secure system he designed. And they'll be watching every move he makes.

Reminded me a lot of Ransom. Good suspense and terror. Intense and fast paced.

This was an extremely edge of seat thriller. In a nutshell it is about a I.T. expert Jack (Harrison Ford)who has to help the bad guys heist 100 mil from the ultra-secure system that he designed at the bank that he works for. The bad guys are holding Jacks' family hostage supposedly until the job is complete. The criminals' plan is airtight and they figure they can't lose. But they overlook one thing: the desperation of a man with everything to lose. Harrison Ford as delivered well in this film as well as the other actors/actresses.

Firewall
Michael Zuffa | Racine, WI United States | 02/20/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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.

Nearly Perfect Transfer of Millions of $ to Cayman Islands
Erika Borsos | Gulf Coast of FL, USA | 03/06/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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 ...

Jack desperately goes along with all the plans by moving money and changing information on the banks software - while plotting to overthrow Bill COx and his team. Harrison Ford plays a gutsy, tough, family man who fights with everything he has to save his family, to keep them alive. This film is filled with edge-of-your seat moments. It has a well developed plot, great actors, and a very satisfactory ending. At times, the scenes can be gruesome but the acting is superb and required for the theme. Anyone who loves to see Harrison Ford at his utmost best ... should see this film. He is one of the few great leading actors of modern times. This is a serious film, with lots of fighting and frightening moments therefore not for the faint of heart.

Formulaic Ford

"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."
