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

November 1, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: C

Strap yourself in for the ride and enjoy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
February 7, 2003
It calls itself a 'thriller,' apparently because it is loaded with pointless machinations that pile up into a tortured wreck of narrative desperation.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
December 8, 2002
Some explosions, a lot of techno, two X-Men, and a Sweat-hog.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
November 10, 2002
Jaded, cynical, dumb and degenerate.
July 24, 2002
...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.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: short
January 22, 2002
Another in a long line of middling movies for Travolta.
October 31, 2001
...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.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
September 30, 2001
Boasts one of the most impressive scenes of utter destruction in cinematic history to date.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Techno tosh, but fitfully great fun all the same.

July 17, 2001
Begins as an involving heist/hacker thriller and ends as a muddled, incoherent mess.
Full Review | Original Score: C
July 16, 2001
A pesar de algunas cosas notorias en su aspecto visual, no deja de ser una más del género
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 16, 2001
Simply too inane to be anything more than a formulaic Hollywood blockbuster.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
