June 7, 2001
Exactly the sort of movie Travolta's character is talking about in the film's opening sequence, all style with no wit.
June 11, 2001
The movie tries for a vibe that is cool, amoral, and ambiguous, but what it gets is a vibe that is manipulative and insincere.

Even the grandest stunts need some sort of storyline to be strung along, and the one in Swordfish is laughably flimsy.
June 7, 2001
How much more stuff do we need to see getting blown up?
June 8, 2001
Uses ultra-modern trappings but fills them with time-worn cliches.

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

Contains five elements that I hate about modern movies: computers, guns, explosions, out-of-control cars and the new requisite, a child performer.

Producer Joel Silver...comes up with a mediocre thriller that moves briskly but goes no where.

If John Woo were in a coma after a botched full frontal lobotomy, he could still make a better action movie than Swordfish.

"Swordfish" just doesn't live up to its protagonist ... but that incredibly complex opening segment and a cool, sleek Travolta almost make it worthwhile

With a stronger than usual cast, it's a shame that Sena and his crew nearly ruin the film with a sense of overkill.

Sena is too wrapped up in making every explosion a work of art that he never seems to notice how hollow it all is.

Mostly it's about upping the ante on gratuitous movie violence.
June 15, 2001
If you're interested in what the wanton violence and amorality says about the Decline of Western Civilization, you just shouldn't see SWORDFISH in the first place.
