Rogue agent Gabriel Shear is determined to get his mitts on $9 billion stashed in a secret Drug Enforcement Administration account. He wants the cash to fight terrorism, but lacks the computer skills necessary to hack into the government mainframe. Enter Stanley Jobson, a n'er-do-well encryption expert who can log into anything.
An effective and sleek action thriller, Dominic Sena's "Swordfish" profits from a rock-solid cast and a sturdy-enough story. Combining tech, backroom global-political machinations, and high-dollar thuggery, the film is swift, entertaining, and compelling. Its narrative may not stand up to intense scrutiny, but the enterprise supplies ample fun.
Following a reformed hacker who gets caught up in a nefarious plot when trying rekindle his relationship with his forcibly estranged daughter, "Swordfish" revolves around that plot and those who would gain from it. Cyber-threats, high-tech thievery, and physical seductions drive the story which is elevated by an interesting collection characters.
Sena's film takes place in a sun-bedecked world of clubs, banks, and hillside mansions. The canvas is stylishly colorful, its characters…
Battlefield Earth Travolta hair.
Even Halle's Berries can't save this one.
John Travolta does bad guys better than most. His turn here as a villain with yet another ludicrous haircut and silly beard (Battlefield Earth anyone?), is interesting enough but this one is remembered for one truly beautiful moment. The moment that Halle Berry unleashed unto the world her prize assets. They were lovely, but to be honest she looked just as good in her undies with a pistol in her hand.
Swordfish however is an enjoyable romp with an eclectic cast pulled together into a plot that makes about as much sense as the stupid title. Hugh Jackman's computer hacker isn't as buffed-up as in his Wolverine days, but he does have an interesting scene where he gets a blowjob…
In 2016, Swordfish is almost unwatchable. Travolta spouts, Jackman hacks, Berry belittles herself. TVR's, Matrix music, Vinny Jones, shit action, horrible dialogue and a gaudy colour palet. Both pompous and ridiculous, like a joke but not funny, or clever. And don't get me started on the costumes, haircuts and font choice.
Getting to the credits is an exercise in perseverance, I rarely turn off a flick, but I came close, especially after the best b(t)it's had clearly come and gone.
Swordfish: home to one of John Travoltas worst haircuts ever.
Fun hacker movie..
When was this film made?
That makes sense.
A former hacker is recruited by a mysterious man living the good life played by John Travolta into pulling off the hack of a lifetime. Highly recommended.
The Feel of (Michael Bay) + The Look of (The Matrix) = Swordfish
Fun action, if a bit over the top, but nastily conservative
I'll do ya
So terrible it is great. Travolta at his cheesiest!
The early 2000's had some awful action films and this is thrown on the same pile as The Italian Job. I might defend this better then The Italian Job, because I like Hugh Jackman over Young Marky Mark Walberg. Then the antagonist John Travolta ruins it.
If you are ever asked who'd you rather see in a movie John Travolta or Edward Norton. You should always say the latter. John Travolta starts this movie off on the wrong foot trying to sound smarter then the room by bringing up 'Dog Day Afternoon'. Breaking a cardinal sin, by bringing up a better movie. His villain in this movie is the super smarter then the room guy, who has a soul patch…
this is just a dumb movie.
Unranked, mostly horror, a lot of Hooper; feel free to provide suggestions, but make sure that their runtimes are at…
