Now this is what I call a movie, a proper high octane action movie! The opening sequence sets the scene for the whole movie, with a matrix like 360 degree panoramic slow mo, but not of someone kicking someone else. Oh no! This is a 2 zillion frames per second, or maybe less I don't know, shot of an exploding bomb, one filled with ball bearings which zoom out at you. Turn the volume up because the sound accompliment is awesome, making full use of the dolby 5.1 format, great stuff. Like I said, this sets the scene for the rest of the movie, complete with guns, gals, explosions and all the <more>
rest of the essential elements of a great action flick. The plot thickens nicely, the acting of John Travolta is great for the role, and the performance of Halle Berry is what you would expect of an Oscar winner. I bought it the day it came out. I highly recommend you add it to your collection too!
First of all this film was great. It started with a great scene that really captivated the audience. Then it showed the amazing story of how this situation came about. And ended with an amazing ending.The first good thing about this movie was the fact that the story was not black and white. The movie not only highlighted the grey area of life, but, proclaimed it.-It showed a man down on his luck desperately missing his daughter due to the custody arrangements. He accepts a job to do many illegal things, breaking the law all along the way to his final goal of reuniting with his daughter. He is <more>
not a really good person. He breaks the law and will do almost anything to get his daughter back.-It also showed a man who will "sacrifice anyone's life including his own" for the greater good. He is willing to do unspeakable things in the pursuit of destroying terrorism. So he is obviously not a good guy yet he is not a bad guy. Just like the man above he is placed in that grey area which encompasses the real world. No one in the real world is only good or only bad. Everyone possesses the power to do good or evil.The film also possessed great cinematography, great actors, and a great script.
This is one of the coolest movie that I've ever seen! Hugh Jackman had acted really well in it. I can watch it a hundred times if I can. Mr Jackman acted so well I was in hysterics while watching a few scenes... I could not stop myself watching the movie. This is a must for every fan of Hugh Jackman, action/thriller movies... John Travolta did okay... Halle Berry acted well. No wonder she's my fave actress! I have not seen such a good thriller movie in many years... This is going to make my cousin really jealous! I think that Hugh Jackman is the best actor in the world next comes Sir <more>
Ian McKellen and others in the whole wide world. I also think that he deserves an Oscar for best actor... It' worth watching it. You people will surely miss something if you don't see this movie... Really!
Like a good old-fashioned action movie, but with a good plot. (by jwillis81)
Swordfish was one of my anxiously awaited summer flicks. And after seeing it a couple hours ago, I am not at all disappointed. It's been awhile since I've seen a truly enjoyable, mature action movie. With the slew of PG-13 action movies of recent years, it's refreshing to see one that at least acknowledges that many intense situations do involve language, sex, and mixed character reactions - it wasn't just another black and white, good and bad movie where the good guy does only good things and the bad guy has only evil intentions. The good guy Jackman didn't always do <more>
the right thing, and the bad guy Travolta could hardly be accused of sinister motives.The film starts off with a bang ... literally. A big-time action sequence to get out attention, then a flashback to show how the climax of the film came to pass. The out-of-order editing was actually effective and interesting, rather than seeming like yet another failed attempt to mimic Pulp Fiction and those other movies that brought attention to the idea of showing a film out of chronological order.Jackman was great as computer hacker Stanley Jobson, devoted father who just happened to get brought down for computer-related felonies after hacking into and making public an FBI e-mail surveillance operation. Forbidden to even touch a computer for the rest of his days, he is lured back into the life by Travolta, who offers him $100,000 just to meet him and take an interesting version of an initiation . Jackman is quickly becoming Hollywood A-list material, and with his performance in Swordfish, it's easy to see why. He can keep up with the smooth-talking, fast-moving Travolta as well as show enough emotion to make him seem like a real person and not just a run-of-the-mill action hero.The plot of the film is fantastic. It's not just a typical heist film, or action plot where the hero has to save the hostages, blowing the hell out of the bad guys in the process. The plot is complex, interwoven, and has a point. The plot was crucial to keeping interest during the slow parts of the film. Starting out with an action sequence carries the danger of losing audience interest if not followed up by more and more action. Thankfully, the plot manages to retain interest during those points in the film where things aren't exploding and buses aren't flying through metropolitan airspace, suspended from a heavy loading chopper.The best part about this film was the interractions between the characters. Stanley is a smart guy, and Gabriel's smarter. Just when Stanley and the audience thinks they have Gabriel in a tight spot, he'll surprise everyone with some improvised ingenuity. There are so many films in the action genre that result to dumbing down the smart villains, just so the hero of the story will look good when he comes up with a relatively weak solution to the complex plot. The villains often slip up or make some kind of fatal faux pas in judgment that allows the hero to triumph. There's none of that here. The hero and villain are both smart, and both stay that way until the very end.This is a great summer movie. See it. See it twice or three times, even. If you're looking for high art or something that really speaks to you and changes the way you see the world, don't see it. But if you want to see a movie for the sake of entertainment and having a good time, Swordfish is the movie to go to. If Swordfish is any indication of the rest of this summer's big action blockbusters, we're certainly in good shape this year.
If one is seeking an action oriented tale which is packed with all the right ingredients, such as drama, sex, beauty and an exciting story line, the film, Swordfish is it. The plot is of a sophisticated, philosophy driven, definitely clever, master criminal, Gabriel Shear John Travolta, who discovers the F. B.I. has amassed over a billion dollars and is keeping it's where-abouts secret from the public eye. He means to have it, whatever it takes. Few are worried the fortune is in danger of being stolen as the billions in U.S. currency are stored and kept in a vault guarded and defended <more>
by a super-computer who's electronic defenses include an ingeniously engineered cryptic and unbreakable 500 Gigwatt cryptic combination. However, all this changes when top cop and D. E. A. Agent J.T. Roberts Don Cheadle learns the master criminal has hired the two most celebrated and re-known computer hackers from around the world. One of them is Stanley Jobson Hugh Jackman who is promised $10.000.000 and his daughter's safe return if he can break and hack into the super guarded computer to retrieve the money. Helping, Don Chedel is voluptuous and riveting super model, Halley Berry who brings all of her delicious form to the big screen. The film erupts with a hair-raising, dynamically driven explosion which then launches itself into an equally captivating film. Keep your eyes on the dynamic players as they combine to create a classic. ****
Good action film. Acting honours must go to Hugh Jackman (by deadly-1)
Very good action film - quite an opening and the flying bus was certainly a switch. The scenes I liked the best was the ad lib in front of the computer where he was trying to find the worm. There are very few who could pull that one off and be convincing. The other scene was with his daughter Holly - I found this moving from both Hugh and Camryn Grimes. A difficult scene to play for both Hugh and Camryn but it was excellent. The young lady is an actress in the making and the bonding of love between the father and daughter was both touching and loving - made me shed a tear.Keep it up Hugh - <more>
you have an amazing talent. Sure want to see you get those Oscars.
What is the highest pressure job interview you've ever had?Well, Stanley Jobson Hugh Jackman a convicted Hacker, fresh out of prison and desperate to see his daughter again, can beat you, i'll bet on it. He has to hack into the FBI Computers in a fairly public place, with a gun to his head and a beautiful woman performing an act of Felacio on him, and he has just one minute to do it. A Great Scene, Not Explict, just cool Anyway, he is recruited by John Travolta to hack into a dormant DEA Fund worth 9.5 Billion Dollars to finance his terrorist activities.Full of Slick Dialogue, cool <more>
Direction and the simply gorgeous Halle Berry, this turns out to be a very enjoyable Thriller, with some clever twists some of which don't quite work but are forgivable anyway.Not a classic, but a good film none the less. 8/10
I think people have been a little to harsh on this movie. No it is not revelatory but it is a nice glossy diversion. The all-star cast, especially Hugh Jackman, is more than competent though they aren't really challenged. There are enough special effects and stunts intermixed with a fairly compelling narrative it is not confusing if you just pay attention to make the film more than worthwhile. Overall good entertainment, 7/10.
Solid Action Film (by ralphie-319-889820)
For you action movie buffs out there, Swordfish has enough great action to rival the Action Masters Arnold and James Cameron in, say, True Lies or Bruce Willis in the first Die Hard. The airborne sequences are great and the car chase definitely rumbles. Holly Berry gives us all a great shot of her boobs thank YOU and at the end of the movie I only wished there was such a bad guy as this running around taking care of certain kinds of business, especially these days after Sept. 11.As I recall, this movie did not get very good reviews when it was released. If that was the case, Jeez Louise why <more>
not? This movie succeeds at everything it tries, it gives us some very interesting characters and for the ladies there's even Hugh Jackman to look at, so I give it high marks. Everyone did a good job, it's action with flavor, explosions with a twist of lime not lemon so let's get behind Swordfish and admit that we really wouldn't mind living that movie ourselves a little bit.
