Harrison Ford plays Jack Stainfeild, securita manager on a big IT- company. One day his family is taken to hostage. He has to break into the system that he has created himself, and take out the money. In the end of the movie, he tricks the robbers, and take their money instead. Jack gets to know where they are holding his family, and he gets off to rescue them with the help of his secretary. A very good movie, with a lot of action and that special little twist.

Dumb Fun

Firewall has everything going against it. Bland acting, tired and improbable plot, and a horrendously negative critical reaction. Heck, the film doesn't even have anything to do with a firewall.

Technology Executive Jack Stanfield has his life thrown into utter turmoil when he's hacked by villainous, web-savvy hackers. While ringleader Bill Cox threatens to kill Jac...

Making a villain out of dynamite was a bold choice

There are people that say dumb action flicks donít have to make sense and give them a slide. Iím just not one of those people. I expect the films I see to have at least a casual relationship with logic and common sense. I guess I expect more, and oh boy was I let down by Firewall. Harrsion Ford stars as a man who has his family kidnapped by the smartest (and dumbest - depending which frame you are watching) criminals who want to steal money from his bank using a USB drive. They want to frame him for the crime and stay anonymous (so why do they show up at his work and get caught on the security feed?). When our hero explains how retarded the idea is they make him come up with a new plan. The ridiculousness hits an apex when the filmmakers decide to make one of the villains out of dy...
