Swordfish-2001-Movie-8

SYNOPSIS: A secretive renegade counter-terrorist co-opts the world’s greatest hacker (who is trying to stay clean) to steal billions in US Government dirty money. REVIEW: Easily one of John Travolta’s greatest roles, “Swordfish” is a collective of great talent, cinematography, script and slick acting.

SYNOPSIS: Surrounded by carnage, slaughter, brutal crashes and total mayhem, Shawn Black is in a race to save the world from pure evil. REVIEW Into every generation a slayer is born, not the spunky little lady we love and know as Buffy, but the muscular ex-soldier known as Shawn Black.
