Notebook Reviews: SWORDFISH

3 out of 5 stars

Dominic Sena – 2001

Although somewhat disappointing considering the talent involved (John Travolta, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Don Cheadle, Vinnie Jones and Sam Shepard, Dominic Sena and Joel Silver), Swordfish highlights that Jackman is a star.

Jackman steals this techno thriller from Travolta and manages to add some realism and humanity to the action. What lets Dominic Sena’s film down is the lack of finale – a big pay-off. There seems to be something missing. It’s still fun though.
