“Broken Arrow” showed the darker side of John Travolta, and “Bulworth” proved Halle Berry makes for good bait. In “Swordfish,” the two team up as CIA operatives to coerce computer hacker Stanley Jobson (Hugh Jackman) to steal $9 billion from a DEA slush fund in order to reunite with his estranged daughter. Don Cheadle and Vinnie Jones co-star in this action-adventure brought to you by the reigning king of the car chase, Dominic Sena (“Gone in Sixty Seconds”). This time he’s got a helicopter carrying a bus through New York City, with sirens in hot pursuit.
