Firewall (D: Richard Loncraine, 100 min)
The poster for Firewall shows Harrison Ford looking tense and about to spring into action. Doesn't every Harrison Ford movie feature the same image? He plays a security specialist whose family is kidnapped. He's forced by the kidnappers to rob the bank he's protecting so he can pay off his family's ransom.
Actors to watch include the underrated Paul Bettany (Master And Commander and director Richard Loncraine 's film Wimbledon). He could become a household name when he shows up in the screen version of The Da Vinci Code later this year.
And like many a talented female actor before her, Virginia Madsen follows up her Oscar-nominated turn in Sideways playing - what else? - a long-suffering housewife. Opens Friday (February 10). Screened after press time - see review February 9 at www.nowtoronto.com/film.
