In this futuristic technology spy movie, John Travolta plays Gabriel Shear, a man who is desperately trying to access information that is locked inside a complicated computer system that contains mountains of government secrets--and money. He hires Stanley Jobson (Hugh Jackman), a desperate computer expert, to help him hack into the system.
Travolta strikes you as a menacing man who fears little - or one who believes he has the power to get things his way. One of the most exciting shootout scenes in the movie sees him reveal an M249 Minimi from the trunk of his roadster, and riddle an opponent's car into a honeycomb.
Swordfish is strictly style above content, with lots of "Bullet Time" special effects as seen in The Matrix. Travolta is treading in the same bad guy water as in Face/Off and Broken Arrow - seemingly always asking us during every scene "Ain't I cool?".
With lots of fast cars and very attractive looking people, this movie is racy, dangerous, and hugely entertaining even if the plot is hugely improbable.
Gun scenes are not the focus of this movie but the action packed chase scenes are all but must-sees.
