Plot outline: 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. Summary written by Jeff Cross {blackjac_1998@yahoo.com} In this futuristic technology spy movie, John Travolta plays Gabriel Shear, a man who is desperately trying to access information that is locked inside a complicated computer system that contains mountains of government secrets - and money. He hires Stanley Jobson (Hugh Jackman), a desperate computer expert, to help him hack into the system. Summary written by Anonymous
Comment: "Swordfish" is a rock'em, sock'em action no-brainer with Travolta as a deliciously likeable villain, Berry as a deliciously topless DEA agent, Jackman as a the world's faster typist, and Cheadle as an FBI agent. Not to be taken seriously, this flick rocks with all the stuff we've come to expect from Hollyweird...star power, stunts, pyro, visual effects, busses flying, bullets whizzing, cars crashing, yadayadayada. A must see for action junkies and enjoyable mindless escapism for others. Note - the plot, feeble as it may be, is eerily more poignant since 9-11.
