How did other people feel about the movie "Firewall"? Starring Harrison Ford, I thought it would be good, but I was pretty disappointed. I thought a few parts were cheesy and incredibly unrealistic.

Wow. That's really funny, my wife had it from netflix not two weekends ago- I was not enthused but it was one of those things where it was the lesser evil.

And despite the "I'm Harrison Ford doing my monotone office job thing, now I'm Harrison Ford doing my raspy desperate get off my computer/plane/wife/dog", I actually was pretty entertained- Paul Bettany is fun, and it moves along reasonably well.

If you have absolutely nothing to do on a Saturday morning, its perfect sit on the couch and stare at it fare.

It's terribly scripted, enervatingly acted by Ford, and about as impersonal as a film can get. The only thing I liked was Bettany's wonderfully understated performance as the villain.
