Swordfish is made with demonstrable skill and enthusiasm, and it's so improbable in its particulars that most viewers in the mood to do so will be able to kick back and enjoy it as shoot-'em-up entertainment.

Cool explosions are the best thing here.
July 21, 2009
Good pacing and intriguing characters drive the overflowing testosterone blitz to an above average level of fun.

It's a good thing the action is noisily distracting, because you don't want any down-time in which to ponder the plausibility, or the sense, of anything that is happening.
December 1, 2006
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.
November 10, 2002
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.
July 20, 2002
Trite and overdone and undercooked and thrown together and ridiculous and wasteful.
February 21, 2002
[An] incredibly convoluted and ponderous techno-thriller that does little but showcase fast fading star John Travolta at his most staggeringly ineffectual.
January 22, 2002
Another in a long line of middling movies for Travolta.
