Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Dudes only" - that might as well be the motto when it comes to big-screen finance dramas. But in this explosive corporate thriller, a dynamite Anna Gunn fights back. I'm with her.
Fresh: It doesn't go for flashy drama, and the ending is more whimper than bang. But there's the sense here of something authentic, and unless you're already in the business, you'll probably learn something.
Rotten: Much as the group might want this to be their spin on, say, the accessible juiciness of "Margin Call," they're unfortunately not that dramatically dexterous.
Fresh: An expertly crafted financial thriller.
Terrible acting, bad script, awful movie
Horrible - even if it was a "Law & Order" episode
I watched 1/3 of this movie. It seemed like a wind-up to a bad "Law & Order" episode. Terrible script, acting, and "story".
I rented this, as the reviews looked promising. The only things worse than this movie were the in-accurate reviews.
Decent story, but has an agenda
If you can get past all of the tiresome, feminist 'I'm a victim because I'm female' cliches, the story is actually pretty compelling. It was fun to see Skylar from "Breaking Bad" in a very different role.
