I have yet to watch it, but here‘s a nice analysis about the reality of it written by security experts.
“Despite the lack of reality, itâ€™s easy to buy into the suspense and the action. Hey, if you can believe that Indiana Jones is a real archeologist, you can believe that Harrison Fordâ€™s character is a real bank security manager. If you are a fan of the TV show “24,” you might think, from time to time, that you are actually watching that showâ€”Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays Chloe, CTUâ€™s most gifted geek, co-stars as Fordâ€™s executive assistant.”
That’s certainly enough incentive for me to want to see it.
Update: Here’s the first vendor who thinks this is “invading their turf”:
“WatchGuard Wire has never published a movie review, but since this one is invading our turf, we feel obligated to repel it. Wire readers, IT professionals one and all, might feel tempted to see a movie entitled Firewall. But if you’re looking for a movie about firewalls, or one that features firewalls as a primary element of the plot, this isn’t it.”
Reminds me a bit about the Vatican having someone to dispel the myths of the Da Vinci Code ;)
