About the Movie

Firewall stars Harrison Ford as bank security expert Jack Stanfield, whose specialty is designing infallible theft-proof financial computer systems. But there's a hidden vulnerability in the system he didn't account for - himself. When a ruthless criminal mastermind (Paul Bettany) kidnaps his family, Jack is forced to find a flaw in his system and steal $100 million. With the lives of his wife and children at stake and under constant surveillance, he has only hours to find a loophole in the thief's own impenetrable system of subterfuge and false identities to beat him at his own game.

Rotten: For every movie based on a clever screenplay that takes years to get made, there are a dozen like the formula hostage thriller Firewall. – Jack Mathews, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

this is one of the best thriller movies ever! the plot is well thought out and planned

Finally, after 2 years of waiting..

My family rented this movie back when it came out. I fell in love with it. You'll be on the edge of your seat the entire time. Wonderful plot and story. A must have for your iTunes movie library.


The first time I watched this film at my family's house, my we had to leave with 20 minutes left, and I never got to finish it for four more months. LIfe is tough sometimes. Oh yeah, wasn't that little kid also in that dumb hostage movie? hm...
