I have not been a huge fan of past investor themed movies like Wolf of Wall Street in the past, but I really enjoyed Margin Call. The plot was engaging, really held my interest and kept me guessing. Great movie that looks and sounds great on Blu Ray as well!
A lot of people do not have a full understanding of the Great Recession that took place in the United States. This movie provides a pretty accurate picture of what happened on Wall Street to create the Financial Crisis.
The movie didn't have my full attention. Although it had a good plot, it didn't end well at all. Should have found a better ending for the movie, because I was left scratching my head trying to figure out what happened.
I bought this movie because I love documentaries and this is sorta like one but it gives a description on how this country went into recession. Should have never happened but some people are just way too greedy.
