Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Harrison Ford is outshone by his costars in this crisp, conventional thriller."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"You've seen this movie a dozen times."
‑ Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine
"There's only so much Ford's ever-game efforts can do to dress up dreck."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Another edge-of-your-seat, roller coaster ride from a matinee idol everybody loves to root for."
‑ Kam Williams, Upstage Magazine
"There is an air of desperation about Firewall, a sense that Ford needed to make this movie just to keep his face in the public eye, lest we think he had fallen off the planet altogether."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Christianity Today
"Its formulaic moves seem particuarly tired."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"This is one of the dopiest plans in the history of evil genius plans."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Such a vapid vehicle for every single cast member that it's difficult to actually enjoy."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A solid ensemble almost saves Firewall, but, in the end, it goes up in campy flames."
‑ Brian Tallerico, UGO
"'s always good to see Ford back in action mode. He lifts a routine film out of total mediocrity by his very presence."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The movie gets a lift from Mary Lynn Rajskub in a glamorized version of her nerd's wet dream Chloe on 24, which is also better this year with the Chloe quotient pumped up."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Firewall is barely worth seeing, despite its above-average cast."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"The movie is so disposable that you won't remember you've seen it."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"Director Richard Loncraine shows no affinity for the nuts and bolts of constructing thrillers, playing out the script's empty threats and chases at a lethargic pace."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"The characters spend a lot of time hunched over keyboards tap-tap-tapping away, which isn't all that suspenseful to watch."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
