Editorial Reviews

When the DEA shut down its dummy corporation operation codenamed SWORDFISH in 1986, they had generated $400 million which they let sit around; fifteen years of compound interest has swelled it to $9.5 billion. A covert counter-terrorist unit called Black Cell, headed by the duplicitious and suave Gabriel Shear, wants the money to help finance their raise-the-stakes vengeance war against international terrorism, but it's all locked away behind super-encryption. He brings in convicted hacker Stanley Jobson, who only wants to see his daughter Holly again but can't afford the legal fees, to slice into the government mainframes and get the money.

It was a good movie, plenty of action, great cast.
mike fillingane
Not even seeing Halle Berry's nudity can make up for the one and a half hours of my life that I wasted watching this movie and I will never get back again.
Amazon Customer
John Travolta, Hugh Jackman, and Halle Berry round out the supporting cast and they all do an outstanding job of playing there characters.

Ignore the Amazon editorial review and all the other reader reviews. I don't want to spoil this movie for you by telling you too much about the plot or describing in perfect detail some of the best scenes in the movie but what I will tell you is...
1) Yes, it's true, Dominic Sena's last directorial effort Gone In Sixty Seconds was a MAJOR dissapointment BUT SWORDFISH ISN'T!!! It's a good movie!
2) Travolta is good
3) Halle Berry is good
4) Don Cheadle is underused and
5)Hugh Jackman is a major star in the making.
6) The now infamous scene of Halle Berry topless was probably unnecessary and perhaps gratuitous (but hey, she's a good looking woman with a good body). Sorry, did I say good? I meant great...but if this is the only reason why you'd watch this movie, then you really do need to get a life.
7)This was one of the better films of the summer.
8)It is neither formulaic nor does it lack ambition. Unlike most movies of this genre it challenges it's audience to excercise the old grey matter and it's got a half-decent twist.
Sure it has some faults, like did they run out of money for FX when they shot the scene of the bus landing on the roof? And the change of pace and edit from past events back to present was badly thought out and jarred a bit. BUT you know what? I liked this movie and the directorial set-piece that everybody wants to spoil for you by describing it to you in every detail is excellent. I only wish the moviemakers had been able to take that extra step and made a great rather than good movie. Buy some popcorn, kick back and enjoy this one on a Saturday night at home in front of the TV...

Although I have seen the movie years ago when it was on cinemas across the world and of course on dvd several times, I bought the blu-ray version in order to see the difference. I must admit that the experience was incredible and during the scenes that John Travolta was firing to the FBI agents and Hugh Jackman was driving, it was like that I have been on the street, in the middle of the crossfire.

If you want to experience the blu-ray difference, I strictly recommend the movie. That's how you see the development from DVD to Blu-Ray.

You have to able to take a movie like this for what it's worth. Do not prepare to see this by shutting off the ringer, and closing the blinds, etc... DO however invite a bunch of friends over, get some popcorn, yell at each other to stop talking (but not actually do it), and just have a blast.
Swordfish has actors, scenes, effects, and situations that are simply "cool"! There are scenes that soley exist to have something blow up. There are scenes that were written just to see Halle Berry topless. There are no awards to give out. No pretentious artsy refrences. Just a kick-butt, popcorn, heart accelerating 'flick'! Take it for that and everyone will have a great time!~

Swordfish doesn't present itself as a particularly smart movie to begin with, but unfortunately, bad-to-heinous choices in storytelling, structure, camera work and pacing conspire to make this a big visual headache, effectively negating what might have been a fun popcorn movie.
Hugh Jackman shows that even an actor of his charm and considerable ability can do nothing when the script amounts to zero. The characters in Swordfish are paper-thin, not the least of which is Jackman's main character, supposed superhacker Stanley. John Travolta has done this vicious-villain role many times before and better, most notably as the devil-may-care stealth pilot of Broken Arrow, a far superior action piece in every way. Halle Berry gives one of the most miserable "performances" I've seen recently from a name star. Her feeble attempts at emotional expression and teeth-clenching dialogue delivery grate on the nerves at every turn, yet we are with her so often that there's no escape. I literally cheered when her character is suspended from a wire cable and asphyxiating. Don Cheadle is the only actor who doesn't quite embarrass himself thanks to his skills, yet his character is underutilized; given more screen time, he could have saved the film and offered up a worthy adversarial force to Travolta.
Director Dominic Sena's music-video sensibilities are evident at every turn. There's plenty of show-offy shots and camera trickery in this film, but none of them feel natural as in The Matrix.

There's lots of style and flash in this film. A topless Halle Berry---I really didn't see the hoopla over her boobla-------and some interesting special effects with computers and graphics but ultimately its a Mission Impossible episode gone on too long. John Travolta over acts----hopefully on purpose. Halle Berry plays sultry and shocked---two notes, and Jackman plays reluctantly moral. Everyone is "playing" something and why is that? I think it's because Dominic Sena's direction is really great here. The use of slow motion and angle shifting is really inspired and it's very difficult to create balance. Great direction may mean lackluster acting or a shoddy script. It takes a lot to bring all three of these elements together into a synthesis. Its a little scary when I actually liked teh special effects more than a film.
