Swordfish (sometimes referred to as Password: Swordfish or Operation: Swordfish) is a cyberpunk-action/thriller film directed by Dominic Sena.
Deep in cyberspace, behind the world's most sophisticated security systems, the United States' darkest secrets - and billions in illegal government funds - lie waiting for anyone who's a smart enough computer hacker.
Gabriel Shear plans to finance his own brand of ruthless patriotism - if he can break into this virtual Fort Knox. He needs parolee Stanley Jobson, the only man capable of penetrating the layers of firewalls and encrypted passwords.
Now Shear and his partner, Ginger, use every lure, including the promise to reunite Jobson with his daughter, to obtain the greatest computer hack ever.
But once inside their clandestine world, Jobson realises he's a pawn in a plot far more sinister than he could ever had imagined.
Tagline: Log on. Hack in. Go anywhere. Steal everything.
