Swordfish 2001 movie review

I’ve been watching a lot of 90’s and early 2000’s movies lately, and I have to say I was skeptical of Swordfish being a decent movie. The star rating was 3/5, which in my mind means it could go either way.

The plot was similar to a lot of action movie plots, with an international terrorist and a confused protagonist (Hugh Jackman) who teeters on the edge of morality.

Hugh’s character is a hacker, already disallowed from seeing his daughter or ever using the Internet.

This movie had a ton of action, and just the right amount of plot twists. Some you may already expect, and it isn’t the most unpredictable movie ever made. Still, I really enjoyed watching this movie, and I do love me some John Travolta!

The acting was on point, and the level of thrill was just right. I was not jumping out of my seat, but I found myself rooting for some characters, which I think is a sign of the quality of actors.

If you like explosions, terrorist plots, and a satisfying ending, check out Swordfish.

My rating: 3.8/5 stars
