Scott Cain Atlanta Journal-Constitution Director-star Clint Eastwood trots out a spy thriller of such complexity that even Five Fingers suddenly seems simplistic. But Clint is a fine storyteller and Firefox makes sense, if you pay attention. Rated: 3/5 Nov 9, 2021 Full Review Bruce McCabe Boston Globe Clint Eastwood's failure to realize his material makes Firefox more sluggish and phlegmatic than it should be. Apr 27, 2018 Full Review Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times Firefox is a slick, muscular thriller that combines espionage with science fiction. The movie works like a well-crafted machine, and it's about a well-crafted machine. Rated: 3.5/4 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com '...(Firefox is ) literally a fun vehicle for a huge box-office star...' Rated: 3/5 Aug 18, 2023 Full Review Peter Stack San Francisco Examiner Eastwood looks like an automated totem pole, the Russians are portrayed as the Three Stooges, and there's more drama, tension and action in a spoonful of cottage cheese than in this painfully drawn-out affair. Rated: 1/4 Nov 11, 2021 Full Review Michael Ventura L.A. Weekly It feels as though Eastwood the director and producer was trying to stretch himself here, technically, and got caught up in the exercise, forgetting the movie.

Robert A Amazing film, I cannot believe how low a score it has on here. Cold War, espionage, cool fighter planes and Clint Eastwood. What more could you want! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Jelisije J An absolute great cold war thriller starring Clint Eastwood....Underrated gem of a film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/16/24 Full Review Nol P "Super Easy Short Edition" movie reviews... Firefox... Clint Eastwood flying a fighter jet, 6 out of 10. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Eye C The problem with the MacGuffins is that if you based the hole movie about it, you got to show it, and in this case I think it gets too late when it does, and if this is what they was going for, because it's not clear either. The movie is boring and with very bad VFX. I think Mr. Eastwood got to let go the spies movies, it doesn't fit for that kind of stories. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 11/17/23 Full Review Christina J Painfully slow had 2 moments at most that were better than watching paint dry. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Clint eastwood stars in this cold war film . Good old fashioned hokem. The plane looks pretty good .
