Synopsis...


Use a computer, go to jail. The terms of Stanley Jobson’s parole are clear. Yet a $10-million payday awaits the superhacker if he takes on a job masterminded by a charismatic covert agent—the daring electronic theft of a government slush fund codenamed Swordfish.

John Travolta is the mastermind, Hugh Jackman is the hacker and Halle Berry and Don Cheadle co-star in this volatile high-tech thriller directed by Dominic Sena (Gone in 60 Seconds) and produced by Joel Silver (The Matrix) and Jonathan D. Krane (Face/Off). Log on, tap in, kick back for cyber-edge action and suspense. Your password for excitement is Swordfish.

Easter Eggs...


This disc contains several interview bits (and other stuff) that are not accessible via the regular menu system. In fact, these clips are actually designed to be accessed through the DVD-ROM section of the disc and a dedicated website as part of the Restricted Files section on the disc, and can be accessed by entering secret passwords (if the website works). However, the interviews are actually encoded as individual titles on the DVD. So, to access these from your DVD player, navigate to the following titles (a brief description of each clip is included):

Title 10 - Music video for "Planet Rock (Swordfish Mix)" by Paul Oakenfold
Title 11 - Hugh Jackman on John Travolta and dancing
Title 12 - Jackman, Travolta, Don Cheadle, & Halle Berry on their lack of computer knowledge
Title 13 - Jackman on how he became involved with the film
Title 14 - Berry on her topless scene
Title 15 - Joel Silver, Travolta, & Jackman on . . . Joel Silver
Title 16 - Travolta on his "acting method"
Title 17 - Sam Shepard on fly-fishing
Title 18 - Dominic Sena on "pushing the envelope"
Title 19 - Gallery of production art
