Non-spoiler movie review – Firewall

Non-spoiler movie review – Firewall: Saw it Saturday.

Pro: If (like me) you’re a fan of techno-suspense-thrillers starring Harrison Ford, you won’t be disappointed. Ford can play this role time-after-time as naturally as Sinatra crooned New York, New York. If you’re a fan of the genre and willing to park your disbelief at the door, you’ll enjoy it.

Con: What’s the deal with the name Jack? Is it not enough to have a Tom Clancy plot with a bank robbery instead of an international conflict? Why do they need to name Ford’s character Jack — it reinforces that he’s playing a Jack Ryan clone (who, instead of being a CIA agent or President, is an extremely affluent bank security executive.) To make matters more confusing, Jack’s assistant in the movie is Chloe from 24. Chloe! Anyone who watches 24 will know how many times Chloe says “Jack” each week.

    Gosh, from reading Dave Barry’s blogs of 24 (instead of watching it), I had formed the impression Chole didn’t know Jack…

    Funny, Bill.
