Cool explosions are the best thing here.
| Original Score: 3/5
Good pacing and intriguing characters drive the overflowing testosterone blitz to an above average level of fun.
| Original Score: B
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.
| Original Score: C
Strap yourself in for the ride and enjoy.
| Original Score: 3/4
It calls itself a 'thriller,' apparently because it is loaded with pointless machinations that pile up into a tortured wreck of narrative desperation.
| Original Score: 1/4
Some explosions, a lot of techno, two X-Men, and a Sweat-hog.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
Trite and overdone and undercooked and thrown together and ridiculous and wasteful.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
[An] incredibly convoluted and ponderous techno-thriller that does little but showcase fast fading star John Travolta at his most staggeringly ineffectual.
| Original Score: short
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.
| Original Score: 5/10
It's easy to dislike what Swordfish is selling... but it makes a compelling pitch.
| Original Score: C+
Boasts one of the most impressive scenes of utter destruction in cinematic history to date.
| Original Score: 6/10
Techno tosh, but fitfully great fun all the same.

| Original Score: 8
Begins as an involving heist/hacker thriller and ends as a muddled, incoherent mess.
A pesar de algunas cosas notorias en su aspecto visual, no deja de ser una más del género
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Simply too inane to be anything more than a formulaic Hollywood blockbuster.
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.
