When the DEA shut down its dummy corporation operation codenamed SWORDFISH in 1986 they had generated $400 million which they let sit around; fifteen years of compound interest has swelled it to $9.5 billion. A covert counter-terrorist unit called Black Cell headed by the duplicitious and suave Gabriel Shear (John Travolta) wants the money to help finance their raise-the-stakes vengeance war against international terrorism, but it's all locked away behind super-encryption. Brought into Shear's fold by the super-sexy Ginger Knowles (Halle Berry) is convicted hacker Stanley Jobson (Huge Jackman) who only wants to see his daughter Holly again but can't afford the legal fees. Jobson must slice into the government mainframes and get the money, but working with Shear is a frightening proposition. Featuring: Laura Lane, Debbie Entin (Temptation Island Season 2 and 3) and Natalia Sokolova (Playboy Playmate of the Month April 1999).
