GUY'S NIGHT OUT: Firewall, he said 3.0

Harrison Ford is one of my favorite actors ever. Since childhood, I have loved Ford. Unfortunately, he has made few good movies since the turn of the century. This doesn't really break that trend, but this was a fun outing to the theater with my dad.

"Firewall" breaks no new ground. Don't think about it too much or you will ruin it. The cast makes the material better than it is. Ford, Paul Bettany, Virginia Madsen, and another favorite of mine, Robert Patrick are all solid as usual. To my surprise Mary Lyn Rajskub was in the movie. To those who don't know, she plays Chloe O'Brien on TV's "24" and is a TV crush of mine. Jimmy Bennett who is becoming one of my favorite child actors plays much the same character he played in "Hostage" last year. Don't you wish you could have been a cartoon character, on a TV show, and in movies with Bruce Willis and Harrison Ford by the time you were ten?

Again, there is nothing special about this movie, but it is enjoyable as escapist action fare.

What did you think?
