Good pacing and intriguing characters drive the overflowing testosterone blitz to an above average level of fun.

Emanuel Levy

A techno thriller that suffers from narrative shortcomings but is elevated by the star power of John Travolta and Halle Berry and particularly Aussie actor Hugh Jackman who's bound to become a Hollywood star.

It calls itself a 'thriller,' apparently because it is loaded with pointless machinations that pile up into a tortured wreck of narrative desperation.

Some explosions, a lot of techno, two X-Men, and a Sweat-hog.

Jaded, cynical, dumb and degenerate.

...plays out like Jerry Bruckheimer's table scraps-- going through the motions in a clueless fog of market-research statistics and demographic pandering.

Goatdog's Movies

Trite and overdone and undercooked and thrown together and ridiculous and wasteful.

Matinee Magazine

[An] incredibly convoluted and ponderous techno-thriller that does little but showcase fast fading star John Travolta at his most staggeringly ineffectual.

Another in a long line of middling movies for Travolta.

...little more than an excuse to insert as much violence, profanity, and sex as possible into a postmodern exercise in futility.

It's easy to dislike what Swordfish is selling... but it makes a compelling pitch.

Begins as an involving heist/hacker thriller and ends as a muddled, incoherent mess.

Simply too inane to be anything more than a formulaic Hollywood blockbuster.

Michael Dequina

While embracing and celebrating its lowest-common- denominator aspirations make the film refreshingly unpretentious and modestly diverting, it doesn't make it a good one.
