I didn’t know anything about this movie going in, only that George Clooney was in it and he usually makes a good movie!
I have to say I quite enjoyed it. I’ve often wondered what would happen if the people who make investment predictions got called on the investments that end up losing us money!
There is a lot of money to be made on the stock exchange if you understand what you are doing and make the right calls and the right moment. But how many of us ever take the time to learn what’s required?
We put our trust and our hard-earned money into the people we see as experts and hope for the best.
Well this movie is what happens when a guy loses all his money, gets pissed off and wants answers. We’ve all wanted answers and wished we could hold the people at fault accountable until we get them but most of us just stew over it and do nothing.
The guy in this movie did something and it didn’t work out well for him. I won’t tell you what as it will spoil the movie and I hate to do that.
You don’t need to understand stocks and shares to enjoy it, that isn’t really the point. The point is the nature of people and I think you get to see that in this film.
Both George Clooney and Julia Roberts play their parts well and it is always nice to see English actors like Jack O’Connell doing well in US movies. Overall I’d say it was an entertaining movie.
