Watch Firewall - Alternative Versions.
Take a gray-haired Harrison Ford, place him in a business suit and then
have him fight someone conveniently wearing all black, and you'd swear
you were watching any number of movies from the last fifteen years.
Name Ford's character Jack, and you'd think that would narrow it down
to a good one. Then again you could just be suckered into seeing
"Firewall" which borrows and doesn't add from the Ford post-Jones
In a play-it-safe campaign to show the world that he isn't too old,
Harrison Ford is pushed into "Firewall". It's been fourteen years
since, "Patriot Games", in which Ford played a man that seemed over the
hill then, and here he is today in the same situations. To jog your
memory, Ford has been making a living playing essentially the same
character in similar situations for years, thanks to the aforementioned
"Patriot Games", "The Fugitive", and "Air Force One".
"Firewall", directed by Richard Loncraine, concerns the tale of Jack
Stanfield, played by Harrison Ford, being forced through the methods of
Bill Cox (Paul Bettany), into electronically stealing from the bank he
keeps hackers out of on a daily basis. Cox has a bargaining chip, the
Stanfield family. Eventually Cox and his team baby-sit the hostages and
circumvent there own success. Jack then hunts them down, and none of
this comes as a surprise due to the formulaic structure of the picture.
Some may find "Firewall" a difficult film to dislike because it plays
all the clichés. It isn't artistic but rather commercial film-making.
Borrowing from every film mentioned above, it uses elements from what
worked and safely combines them in a coherent, yet unexciting manner.
The action scenes don't come till the end of the picture, and those
five minutes offer little more than stunt work put on by actors half
Ford's age. This is a vehicle for Ford and as the audience we are
supposed to subconsciously see this as a practice run at a fourth
Indiana Jones film. With such blatant disregard for a plot and even
unique action, you can view this movie as the precursor to "Indiana
Jones and the Gated Community".
There is an element that seems realistic and that is the acceptable
number of henchmen who are employed by the leader. If they are trying
to steal money, then having less people to divvy up the bounty would
result in a greater payday. Cox has a modest four men working with him.
Unfortunate for both him and the viewer, their lack of common sense is
staggering. For example, the family dog Rusty, plays a prominent role
when the bumbling fools take him hostage. There should be a logical
reason for taking Rusty. With his family already held captive in an
unknown locale; I'm sure Jack Stanfield was ready to walk away from
them and start a new life. But wait, Rusty is missing too, now I have
to comply with their demands. This ultimately destroys the credibility
of the screenplay.
Performances in the film are convincing. Virginia Madsen is good as the
relaxed wife considering the situation her character is put through. My
favorite role was of Paul Bettany as a sometimes caring villain that
flips a mean pancake. Despite this, director Richard Loncraine has
crafted a film that is best described as what a computer would spit out
if the command was: thriller. Everything functions to drive the story
on its merry way. Lacking character nuances, rich emotions, and
beautiful scenery is OK for a suspense film about robbing a bank. Where
"Firewall" betrays the genre is in not providing twists, originality,
or an intriguing story.
