    This is a movie about Wall Street during the financial crisis and mistreatment of the American investor... It highlights the actions of one firm who manages to forsee the crisis regarding credit default swaps. ..It was good if you like Wall Street movies. I do not want to go into a lot of detail here but I will tell you that I would say it is worth $10 to $15 to add to your movie library... Good for Friday nights. Teenagers may not think so. I would tell you to buy this.

    I admit that this is a very difficult subject to bring to life, and this is a cast that could do it if anybody could, but it's still a hopeless task. It all occurs during one night in one office, and that might have been the challenge for this stellar cast, but without a zinger ending, it all just kind of collapses.

    Kevin Spacey is a true player but I was hoping for more. Can't explain my resistance, my hesitation, but I can't give this movie anymore stars then I did. If you get it cheap go head swipe that credit card but if you can rent it once that's all you will need. Sorry

    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.

    I really enjoyed this movie with actors Kevin Spacey, Stanley Tucci, and Jeremy Irons. This movies shows how corporate greed can destroy society and how people will go to certain lengths to cover it up.
