Swordfish (2001)
Synopsis: There exists a world within our world. A world beneath what we call cyberspace. A world protected by firewalls, passwords and the most advanced security systems. In this world we hide our deepest secrets, our most incriminating information, and of course, a whole lot of money. This is the world of "Swordfish." The world's most dangerous spy is hired by the CIA to coerce a computer hacker recently released from prison to help steal $6 billion in unused government funds.

He turns away from the window and we FOLLOW him.

The interior of the bank looks like New Orleans on Fat

Tuesday. Three Hummers sit in the middle of the floor,

surrounded by broken glass. Between them rests a brightred Ferrari F50 (Gabriel's).

All but one of the front windows of the bank, the one

with the door in it, has been welded over with 3/4 inchplate steel.

Over two dozen hostages lie face down on the floor, armscable-tied behind their backs. Something has been duct-

taped around their chests and each is wearing whatappears to be a dog collar.

The other occupants of the room are nine men. All of

whom would look as if they were attending the fashionevent of the year were it not for the automatic weaponseach one carries.

How we doin'?
