Jack Stanfield (Ford) is a computer security specialist employed to keep hackers out of a Seattle-based bank’s computer systems. When his wife Beth (Madsen) and children are kidnapped by Bill Cox (Bettany), he’s forced to break through his own firewalls and rob the bank he’s been paid to protect.
A formulaic, it’ll-do action-thriller, Firewall does what you’d expect it to well enough but fails to fully exploit the skills of its talented cast — particularly the leading man.
