    Action Harrison

    Harrison Ford—okay, so he’s older, gray and lined. But he can still put on a great performance. Back that up with Virginia Madsen as his wife and Paul Bettany as the nasty, sociopathic bad guy with an improbable three-man team and you have quite a mix. Ford plays Jack Stanfield, vice president of security at a large Seattle Bank that has just finished installing a new security system that Jack doesn’t seem thrilled with. Enter the bad guy, who forgot to complete his homework and didn’t know about the upgraded system, but kidnaps Jack’s wife, teenage daughter, and asthmatic/peanut allergic son, in the hope of scamming $100 million from the bank. He wants Jack to log into the system, obtain the 10,000 highest depositors, and transfer $10,000 each from their accounts into the robber’s offshore account. Things go awry because of the security upgrade and Jack has to come up with some unbelievable (and if you know anything about technology—impossible) jury-rigging to accomplish the deed. The film switches back and forth between scenarios. The bad guys treat Jack’s family nice one moment and feed the son a cookie with peanuts to induce anaphylactic shock the next—to Jack, constantly under surveillance, trying to figure out how to foil the robbers and getting beat up, then succumbing to carrying out their demands to save his family. And to top it all off, in the end everything is going to point back to Jack, who’s supposed to end up dead, as having been the mastermind behind the theft. Great action and tension—however, the plot is too implausible. The movie ends with a big question mark. Many lost threads that weren’t clarified. Still in all it was entertaining on an amusement level, no cerebral activity required.

    Predictable with a pinch of product placement

    Boring and predictable, much like Harrison Ford's career path. I groaned and moaned throughout this stinker, though Paul Bettany is great as usual. However his sidekicks are stupid, Ford's family is stupid, and Ford himself is slow and aging rapidly as the movie sputters to its end. Don't waste your time.

    Boring

    It was just OK. Couldn't really get into it. As one reviewer said, you seen one Harrison Ford movie, you more or less seen 'em all.

    Whatever

    How many times has Harrison Ford played this exact same role in a movie with this exact same plot? Still, it's a fair movie to pass an evening if nothing more than to see Ford at it AGAIN.
