(mbc.net) Gabriel Shear (John Travolta) heads a secretive government organization whose sole purpose is retaliating against terrorist attacks involving American victims. In the 80s the DEA created a drug operation called Swordfish that was later stalled; the money in its account has since accumulated interest to the sum of $9.5 billion.
With Shear's agency on the verge of shutdown, he needs finances to keep it running and hires hacker Stanley Jobson (Hugh Jackman) to break into a bank's mainframe and retrieve the money for him. Explosions, action, and betrayals quickly ensue.
Swordfish had a production budget of $102 million and earned $147 million internationally. The picture won a BET Award.
