Overview
Log on, tap in and kick back for cyber-edged action and suspense. Your password for excitement is SWORDFISH.

Use a computer, go to prison. The terms of Stanley Jobson's (Hugh Jackman - X-MEN) parole are clear. Yet a $10million payday awaits the superhacker if he takes on a job masterminded by a charismatic covert agent - the daring electronic theft of a government slush fund codenamed SWORDFISH.

John Travolta plays the suave spy Gabriel Shear, who, with the help of his sizzling partner Ginger (Halle Berry - X-MEN), lures Stanley into their clandestine world where cyber-crime is the 21st century breaking and entering. Vinnie Jones (SNATCH) pulls the punches and Don Cheadle (TRAFFIC) is the FBI agent determined to bring them down.

The director of GONE IN SIXTY SECONDS and the producer of THE MATRIX combine to deliver this hear's hottest and most electrifying thrill ride.

Easter Eggs
Here they are at last - those pesky Swordfish eggs, but bear in mind they're only accessible from a PC DVD-ROM drive:

The 'hidden' DVD-ROM features are found by clicking on Restricted Files, waiting for the graphics to download (yes, you need to be online), and then typing the passwords into the Terminal section on the top right of the screen & clicking Submit. OK, some of the passwords are: Stanley, Gabriel, Worm, Misdirection, Patriot, Mossad and Hacker. There should be 3 more but that's all we've found so far - if you know the rest let us know.

An easier way though is to go to titles 10-18. 10 is a music video by Paul Oakenfold, and 11-18 are interviews. The best is the 'real' egg: a 23 minute TV interview with Hugh Jackman and John Travolta on Rove Live, which is on title 6. I don't know if it can be found anywhere else on the disc (ie, through a menu) but it's not listed as an extra.
