Swordfish

Machine gun fire, people exploding, fast cars racing through the streets and buses swinging in mid-air. Yes, another action-adventure film erupts on the big screen with Swordfish. Just in case you’re wondering, it has nothing to do with fish. Gabriel Shear (John Travolta) is the head of a secret anti-terrorist organization run by the United States government. Gabriel locates 6 billion dollars hidden in overseas accounts, but he has to decipher several incredibly complex computer codes to gain access to the money. So, he sends his associate, Ginger (Halle Berry) to hire Stanley Jobson (Hugh Jackman), one of the worlds best computer hackers. Stanley has just been released from Leavenworth and doesn’t want to risk going back to prison, but he’s eventually persuaded by Ginger (I think I could have been persuaded, too) and he reluctantly signs on with Gabriel. Within a week Gabriel and his men break into an international bank in New York, Stanley manages to transfer the money using the banks main computer, and they attempt to make an escape. The body count begins to rise as they try to leave the city. This movie has a few small twists and some imaginative action scenes. It was entertaining to see Travolta as a cold-blooded killer and Halle Berry, well, topless. (No, I wasn’t up front brailing the screen during the scene.) I was pleasantly surprised with this movie and give it a B rating.

This movie has been given an R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
