An intense and emotional drama, thriller packed with an all star cast in a tightly written script about the financial collapse in 2008. The whole film takes place in a 24 hour time block with the big shots at an investment bank trying to control the crisis. The movie starts and your eyes are immediately glued to the screen. All of the actors are fantastic and newcomer Zachary Quinto, who you will recognize only as Spock from 2009's "Star Trek," is a standout. He would steal the show if it were not for Kevin Spacey, Stanley Tucci, Jeremy Irons, and Demi Moore. There is no stealing the show here. Once you get past recognizing all the familiar faces, you are sucked into the story that changed the economy we are in today. This is the best wall street film I have ever seen. It is so packed with the intensity of the crisis and the film helped me understand it more than I ever did before. Along with this the film has emotion and you care for these characters and identify with them. You like some and you hate some but you love them all. 2011 was a great year and this is another film competing in my soon to be released Top 10 of 2011 list. Prepare to see this film on it. It is a must for everyone, especially business men and women and the young people who will soon enter into this world of dirty business and corruption. Watch this movie and think about who you need to elect as our leaders to get us out of our awful financial debt and fix this economy.
