It's skillfully mounted and fitfully intriguing, but weaves such a tangled web that at the end I defy anyone in the audience to explain the exact loyalties and motives of the leading characters. There is one person in the movie who is definitely intended to be a hero, but are the villains really villains? Are they even themselves?
Whether it's a passionate love scene or Billy Connolly dancing around Stonehenge, nude scenes always raise at least an eyebrow. The all-time classic pointless topless scene.

The opening sequence of "Swordfish" is a grabber: so fast, sleek and riveting it almost makes you expect miracles -- which never materialize. But, for a good 10 minutes, Dominic Sena's new movie looks like the kind of slick and sexy, smart, high-style crime thriller Hollywood often promises but rarely delivers.
