      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Swordfish is big on explosions, but critics dislike how it skimps on plot and logic. Also, the sight of a person typing at a computer just isn't that interesting.

      Nell Minow Common Sense Media Cool explosions are the best thing here. Rated: 3/5 Dec 28, 2010 Full Review David Ansen Newsweek 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. Nov 1, 2007 Full Review Kimberley Jones Austin Chronicle Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 10, 2003 Full Review Steve Warren Southern Voice (Atlanta) Director Dominic Sena, moving up from Gone in Sixty Seconds, puts everything you're supposed to see and hear on the screen and makes you believe enough of it while it's happening that you won't have serious vague moments until you leave the theater. Rated: 2.5/4 May 7, 2023 Full Review Abbie Bernstein Audio Video Revolution 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. Rated: 3/4 Oct 31, 2018 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com Good pacing and intriguing characters drive the overflowing testosterone blitz to an above average level of fun. Rated: B Jul 21, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

      Coralie M ...here John Travolta returns; and me as a viewer am reminded again of a conundrum 🤔 Is this guy undercover? On a weird-ass riff of the danger-bus and bomb scenario...why does the bus look like a macro thing from...Tron? Anyhow, what does that matter? Jackman gets to rescue his daughter from her (better-off?) porn-star mom... Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Honest D The only reason to possibly watch this movie is if you want to see Halle Berry doing naked stuff. The rest of the movie is unbelievable and dumb. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review kodak j thought the movie was awesome. have watched it several times. thank you Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/24 Full Review Evan C This movie was awesome! Is it unbelievable.....of course. Is the story line disjointed......it sure is. But you don't go into this movie thinking it is adapted from a real life story. It has an amazing soundtrack (If you are familiar with Paul Okenfold), awesome action scenes, and a great twist. If you are looking for a fun movie then you've found your guilty pleasure. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review Dick C It's a very good motion picture, Swordfish, 2001... Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/29/23 Full Review Emilliano Jr S Over exagerated and cheesy.
