When the DEA shuts down a dummy corporation operation code named SWORDFISH, they had generated $400 million which they let sit around; years of compound interest has swelled it to $9.5 billion. A covert counter-terrorist unit called Black Cell, headed by Gabriel, wants the money to help finance their war against international terrorism, but it's all locked away behind super-encryption. He brings in convicted hacker Stanley, who only wants to see his daughter Holly again but can't afford the legal fees, to slice into the government mainframes and get the money.

I enjoyed this movie. Lot's of action and twists. Halle stole the show.

The description says // two CIA agents \\ - - thought it was two FBI agents, but I might not recall it correctly, especially since it was one of the dumbest, silliest movies with major holes in it throughout - - the only decent item was Halle Berry, looking great, but the plot, story, scripting, et cetera, all sucked big time!

Over the top action thriller!

Halle Berry in her prime!

This got all kinds of attention from the tech crowd because it was about technology. Except that there is almost no real technology in it. Lots of plot twists, enough that you could be forgiven for losing interest on the way to the ending.

Even for a dumb action movie, this is ridiculously bad. You will spend much of the movie trying to figure out why John Travolta has such a terrible haircut and what exactly is on his face.

This may sound cruel but, one of my favorite scenes in this movie is when a female hostage, completely strapped with explosives, gets away from the bad guys and runs with the police. Unfortunately, when her explosives blow-up, the sounds of the ballbearings tearing through everything in it's path while the camera does a 360 degree turn showing everything being blown and torn apart is AWESOME!!! HOMETHEATER makes this all possible. There are a few more good scenes you will enjoy that have good audio and visual effects. I also liked the story and the bad guy. And let's get real here. I like me some HALLE BERRY. I give this movie 4 stars. For very good action and sound. And a decent story. Large shrimp with shrimp fried rice and lemon aide.

Convoluted plot, Halle could have looked better without the messy hair style.
