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.
January 22, 2002
Another in a long line of middling movies for Travolta.

Simply too inane to be anything more than a formulaic Hollywood blockbuster.
June 12, 2001
The story ... is just what fills in the gaps between slow-motion fireballs, Matrix-style frozen mayhem, and Halle Berry's notoriously undraped breasts.
June 12, 2001
The sleazy script by Skip Woods ... slimes the actors.
June 8, 2001
An action opera designed to elicit Beavis and Butt-head-level appreciation.
June 8, 2001
Nobody really cares about the plot, least of all the filmmakers.
June 8, 2001
The kind of movie where glass-smashing in slow motion serves the same function as extended guitar solos did in '70s rock concerts.
June 8, 2001
My inner jock left hungry for some good final jolts.
June 8, 2001
Sena doesn't back up his bravado and, indeed, his film is rather flushable.
June 8, 2001
All this excess, leading to nothing much.
June 8, 2001
Feels like every other action thriller we've seen in the past three years, only it's more annoying.
June 8, 2001
By the seventh explosion, you can't help wondering whether all this flashy stuff amounts to more of a smokescreen shielding a lack of spine or soul.
June 8, 2001
A film that reeks of stupidity and cynicism, one that makes you feel soiled just to have sat through it.
June 8, 2001
Truthfully, it's all twaddle.
June 8, 2001
Don't look too closely. If you do, it becomes not just mindless, but ludicrous, preposterous and downright stupid.
June 8, 2001
Begins by directing our attention to a potentially good film in full view -- then some damn Hollywood magician makes it disappear.
June 8, 2001
Too much routine stuff amid the excess relegates the hyperactive Swordfish to the level of costly dross.
June 8, 2001
It's skillfully mounted and fitfully intriguing.
