Goofs

When Jack exits the elevator at the beginning of the movie, we see what he sees through the pen's camera. We see a Dell USB keyboard attached to a computer. However, when the "real" camera pans to follow Jack around the bank he works at, the same keyboard magically becomes a multimedia keyboard, which the bank wouldn't be using anyway, because they use the card reader in the USB keyboard to read their employer's IDs.

Not terrible...
22 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Overall, an enjoyable movie, until the end when it felt like the director got sick of the movie and said "that's a wrap. everyone leave".

Fortunately, they didn't go overboard with the usual lousy computer scenes you normally see in a movie. In fact, the whole name of "Firewall" is poorly chosen.

If you're looking for a simple pseudo-thriller that follows the typical script, you'll enjoy this.

If you're looking for more than that, look elsewhere.

I give it a 5 out of 10. Had some enjoyable moments, but like I said, it simply ends poorly.
