The sort of action thriller for which the phrase "high octane" could have been conceived, Swordfish stars John Travolta as Gabriel Shear, an enigmatic criminal operator who is as admired as he is feared. Using sexy sidekick Ginger (Halle Berry) as bait, he pressgangs Stanley Jobson, (Hugh Jackman) the world's greatest computer hacker, into helping him relieve the world banking system of a few billion dollars to finance his own enterprises. Jackman agrees, on the promise that Travolta will help him regain custody of his daughter.

The numerous explosions and set-piece exchanges of high calibre gunfire tend at times to blowholes in the narrative fabric and sense of Swordfish, a film that nonetheless engages through its extravagant silliness. Vinnie Jones is under-used as a fearsome minder, a close-up of Halle Berry's breasts isn't entirely integral to the plotline, while Travolta enjoys himself as the dapper ringmaster of this orgy of techno-chaos, especially in scenes in which he blasts away a brace of pursuing assassins with improbable aplomb and during his opening, Tarantino-esque monologue. By the end, he has shown himself in his apparently true colours in such a way that events of September 11, 2001--although made prior to them--lent the film an eerie sense of prescience. --David Stubbs

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favs 9 Mar 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I love the BluRay transfer. The picture is amazing. Although the sound is Dolby Digital and not DTS HD MA it sounds fantastic on my Pioneer VSX-819 receiver and the Pioneer S-V520-QL speaker set.

I would recommend it to all of my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..VERY STYLISH MOVIE.." 28 April 2012
This is a very cool techno thriller with a stylish direction, the movie is paced out well with an awesome story full of twists and turns at every corner, the cast is fantastic Travolta is super cool and this is Jackmans best ever role too. The soundtrack is awesome and pumping with cool over the action, this is a super slick movie well worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film 8 Dec 2007
Hugh Jackman is just georgous in this film...this is definately one of his best films.
Travolta is a egomanic who wants to rid the world of terrorists, but doing things the hard way. He employs Jackman a reformed computer hacker to hack into the worlds wealth to finance his reign of terror.
Music throughout is by Paul Oakenfold and is great. Halle Berry is great in this film and it does have an interesting twist at the end..
Would really recommend this film to buy as you will watch it again.
Really good film to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swordfish 27 May 2008
To say this movie came out 7 years ago, when blu-ray and HD was unheard of, this movie is AMAZING on Blu-Ray. I've always loved the film, but it has re-kindled my love for this classic. And I think that's what Blu-Ray is all about.

Get it. Watch it. Love it.

This is a preposterous load of tosh, with Hugh Jackman as an IT expert being suborned by John Travolta to hack into hidden CIA cash reserves (for the best of reasons, obviously). Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Swordfish
Top film, but that's the case for all of John Travolta's films. A film you can watch over and over.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good picture but poor audio transfer
Bluray transfer let down by poor audio quality. No DTS! Only AC3 5.1. Ok but the centre channel is mushy on some dialogue and the right front channel is too low giving a left bias... Read more
