5.0 out of 5 stars Opens with a bang...
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). The plot twists and turns, (is JT and bad guy? A good guy? A bad good guy? what?), Halle Berry is gorgeous as the cinematic eye candy, Hugh struggles to do what's right, and Vinnie Jones is...

3.0 out of 5 stars The baddies are the goodies in this film
Not a great movie but has enough to entertain. That said, there were some decent ideas behind the silly stuff, (unneeded and poorly produced fluff such as:bad explosion scenes, still more of a reach with ideas which would not be practical in furthering the ideas and goals of the primary character, John Travolta. So while the movie really has too many poorly produced,...

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Triple espressos all round, 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A film that makes you change your regular Starbucks order whilst engageing with the new world order of terrorism and state funded counter terrorism - how bad can it be? Well neither good nor bad. Travolta is terrific - isnt he always - but the rest of the cast and the direction let the engageing plot down in a big way...
Good attempt - worth a watch - but could have been something...

4.0 out of 5 stars Love a good film like this., 10 July 2007
This review is from: Swordfish [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Thought this film was really great. I really enjoyed it as it was intense at times and throughout it, this happens very rarely to me i have to be honest, I was wanting to watch it all the way to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swordfish, 27 May 2008
By 
Emily Raw (Wakefield, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
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.

I had not seen this movie for years, but seeing it again in HD, was awesome.
If you like John Travolta as an actor, it's a must have to the collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Explosive!, 2 Jan 2003
By 
C. Kilvington (London) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Swordfish [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
The film summed up in three words: explosive, cool, but a touch cliched. However, if you like guns, intelligent crime capers, computer hacking and the like, this is your 'kettle of fish'.
For starters, Swordfish has one of best openings you'll see in any flick. And this sets you up nicely for the rest of the film which only slows at times to give you a breather.
Although some scenes are fantastical with a capital 'F' - could that really happen in a million years? - this is easy to deal with in a kind of James Bond type of way. The main reason I wouldn't give the film five stars is that it is cliched, especially when it comes to dialogue and some of the progressions in the plot. The dialogue is certainly not in the Tarrantino League as the Amazon reviwer might suggest.
Having said all this though, you shouldn't dispair. This is worth your 'hard earned' if you're an action fan. The story's not bad either. And as a big bonus, Travolta, Jackman and Berry do not disappoint for minute.
