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.
I'm breaking my own rule and rating a movie I've seen before.
This movie was a staple of my pre- and early teens, along with xXx. The forced blowjob and Halle Berry's tits were riviting, but the edgy, technocrat affiliated crime and violence was what really held my attention. I'm pretty sure I had multiple/forced my family to have Swordfish backgrounds on my and our family computers. The more screens you had the cooler you were at computers. The family of one of my friends growing up wound up with a second VHS of this movie and gave it to me so I would stop asking to watch it ever time I came over.
I remember some nonsense about computers and Hugh Jackman getting blown while looking at multiple monitors. Mostly I remember Halle Berry at the peak of her sexuality hitting golf balls and hiding microphones in her underwear. Gonna add a couple of extra stars just for that.
Swordfish is the definition of a dumb movie. It barely makes a lick of sense, it's insanely over-the-top, and there are many conveniences throughout the movie, but man, did I enjoy it. This is what a mindless action movie is. It is fast paced, and has lots of energy. Don't get me wrong; if I were to rate this on being a movie, it'd probably get like a 2/5, but this is why ratings don't work sometimes. Movies like this will come along and you will like them even if they're not good, so it can be hard to rate them. But nonetheless, if you're in the mood for something fun and stupid, Swordfish provides that in spades.
Last time I watched this I was recovering from an appendectomy. This time I was not in abdominal pain, and perhaps this affected my emotions, as I really enjoyed it back then, but now I found it a harmless predictable but of stunty nonsense.
Extra point for Halle Berry pointing a gun in her undies.
Fun hacker movie..
When was this film made?
Yeah, 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
