Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Swordfish (2001)

Directed by Dominic Sena

Starring John Travolta, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Don Cheadle


Fabulous cast, especially in retrospect. Featuring a relatively skinny but still charismatic Hugh Jackman, though I doubt there’s a hacker in the world who looks like he does. Berry is looking nice. I’ve never liked Travolta in any role he takes himself seriously in. In something like Pulp Fiction, it works. But he just seems a little goofy to me in most other things.

Crappy dialogue, an annoyingly scripted plot twist, techno music, hacker coolness, heavily edited action, mediocre effects. It all feels very 90’s.
