Firewall, a review by Hal




Title: Firewall
Year: 2006
Director: Richard Loncraine
Rating: PG-13
Length: 105 Min.
Video: Widescreen 2.40:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Spanish: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Harrison Ford (1942)
Virginia Madsen
Carly Schroeder
Jimmy Bennett
Gail Ann Lewis

Plot:
It's an ordinary day at Landrock Pacific Bank - ordinary for everyone but I.T. expert Jack Stanfield. His wife and children are held hostage at home. Their kidnappers have one demand: Jack must heist $100 million from the ultra-secure system he designed. And they'll be watching every move he makes.

Showing the Everyman vulnerability, strength and resourcefulness that make him one of film's most appealing heroes, Harrison Ford portrays Stanfield in this cyber-edged race against time. Paul Bettany (The Da Vinci Code) co-stars as an ice-blooded crime mastermind. And Virginia Madsen (Sideways) plays Stanfield's wife, who disregards her own terror to protect her children. The criminals' plan is airtight. They figure they can't lose. But they overlook one thing: the desperation of a man with everything to lose.

Extras:
Scene Access
Feature Trailers
Featurettes

My Thoughts:
I had a lot of fun with this one. My friend and I were enjoying that this Norwegian film did not use the same patterns an American film would have used, which in whole made it feel fresh. my friend did however complain about the unrealistic use of the human anatomy, especially that of intestines :laugh: (he is a surgeon...). There are a few laughs in this, as well as a sufficient amount of gore. So, while obviously not a masterpiece of a film, it is great fun for that Saturday night with some friends over.

Tom's Random Star Trek Reviews, a review by Tom


DS9 4.20 Shattered Mirror
Writer: Ira Steven Behr (Writer), Hans Beimler (Writer)
Director: James L. Conway
Cast: Avery Brooks (Captain Sisko), Rene Auberjonois (Odo), Michael Dorn (Lt. Commander Worf), Terry Farrell (Lt. Commander Dax), Cirroc Lofton (Jake Sisko), Colm Meaney (Chief O'Brien), Armin Shimerman (Quark), Alexander Siddig (Doctor Bashir), Nana Visitor (Major Kira), Felecia M. Bell (Jennifer), Aron Eisenberg (Nog), Carlos Carrasco (Klingon Officer), Andrew Robinson (Garak), James Black (Helmsman), Dennis Madalone (Guard)

In this episode, Jake meets the mirror Jennifer Sisko (his mother). Though this is a nice idea and has a good payoff, they focused too much on this storyline for my taste. Still the episode was fun to watch. Though it is strange, how the rebels could build a perfect replica of the Defiant in such a short time. It is also sad to see mirror-Garak degraded to being the labdog of mirror-Worf.
