Film Review: Firewall

I’ve just finished watching the movie Firewall, it wasn’t good, it wasn’t bad it just was. Its one of those films that a select few revere (there always are a few) but I’m guessing the majority are like me and think “m’eh”.

In fifty years time it’ll be one of those films that put on in the middle of the day that when someone goes sifting through the TV guides looking for were it says in bold letters FILM: they’ll see this, skim the synopsis and more on for something more interesting. What I don’t understand is why the legend that is Harrison Ford got involved in it? I mean a living legend, he’s had a lot of high hitters ( for example 9 top 10 movies in the 1980s ) a slew of others since then. This it was just a little plain, yeah okay he’s getting on a bit but so was Sean Connery when he did Last Crusade or even later still Entrapment.

I just hope that the effort that when into this movie isn’t the same that gets applied to Indiana Jones 4 if it ever gets out of the pre-production stage.
