The alias that Bill Cox uses, "Bill Redmond", is a reference to Bill Gates whose company Microsoft is based in Redmond, Washington. See more »
When Jack enters the bank branch in the airport to make the wire transfers, the teller swipes her proximity badge twice to unlock the door. The LED changes from red to green, as would be expected. See more »
Warning: Spoilers ahead. In the last scene of the theatrical version, Jack Stanfield, his wife and son are shown in a closing profile shot walking up a hill and it fades to black. In the DVD version, it ends with an extra scene in an overhead crane shot of two police cars arriving while the family is walking towards them. See more »
The movie was better than I thought it would be. I really enjoyed it. Seeing Harrison Ford back in action was an added bonus. He can definitely still bring it. It was great to see him back on the big screen as feisty as ever still kicking butt. The villain was played by Paul Bettany who is always brilliant when playing a dirty rotten scoundrel. I didn't realize how tall he (Paul) is until this movie, (he is a good inch taller than Harrison Ford, who is over 6 ft) The film was a bit slow in parts, but the ending makes up for it. I wouldn't suggest taking small children as it is a bit violent for its PG-13 rating. There are also a couple funny / cute moments that were really well played. If you are a Harrison Ford fan, you won't want to miss Firewall.
