Default Swordfish

This is the first time I've seen the movie since it game out in the 90s. Does anyone else find Travolta's character more likable than hated? "They kill and American tourist, we tactically nuke a small city. We make the cost of terrorism too high to even consider."

Why does this person not exist? That's true patriotism. Sadly, I think there's no one left guarding liberty in this country. Even the president, himself, seems an avowed enemy of the state.

agree with your thoughts on the president. Never in my lifetime did I think I would see almost purposeful destruction of everything that makes this country great.

What is more amazing to me is how ...

1. the media is TOTALLY in bed with him and will not report any negative news about him. In fact they are helping to engineer his agenda.

2. how most of America seems apathetic/lazy (sp?) towards anything that his administration does.

Back to your first comment about Swordfish, I am trying to remember what it was about, I know I have seen it too. Travolta is a very good actor with most of his movies being very entertaining.

I like that movie, but his evil could use some boundaries.

these days the CIA gets investigated for saving our lives by waterboarding the poor terrorists. Poor wittle mass murderers....

yeah, poor misunderstood freedom fighters.

I can't imagine how the folks working for the CIA must be feeling with this administration in power. I feel sorry for them.

The movie made me sick. He strapped bombs to Americans and murdered them, and even though I know its just entertainment, it was just too much for squeamish old me.

Technically, he didn't murder those people. The police did. He already warned them what taking the hostages out of range would do, and the police did it anyway.

Tango - You really need a god damn hug....

Ineff - I have always thought that was a great character. The fact that he was working for the government in an ulterior fashion, but had the best interest of the country at heart, I thought was just a great storyline.

They execute American tourists, we tactically nuke an entire city. Our job is to make terrorism so horrific that it becomes unthinkable to attack Americans.

About all I remember in that film was Halle Berry sans clothes???

Truly this country needs patriots that are not afraid of offending the tender sensibilities of the left. Sadly, when Zero is done our intelligence services will be emasculated worse than they were during Carter...
