Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Boiler Room reflects the sensibility of the generation it holds up to critical scrutiny, and it's a cunningly ambiguous act of self-portraiture.
Fresh: A fast and funny look at a world where 'greed is good' has become the only reality in town.
Rotten: The movie draws from the works that preceded it, then takes to the street with a too-cool hip-hop strut.
Fresh: Boiler Room is derivative and flawed. But it does throw off a few sparks.
I've been waiting a long time for this one. With the Wall Street bail-outs and the Bernie Madoffs of this world, this awesome flick is more timely than ever ten years out. Plus Vin Diesel is a convincing enough Guido to appear on "Jersey Shore"! Do not pass on this one.
If you didn't grow up in this era you just wouldn't understand this movie the cast was a who's who of current stars. This had movie amped ever upcoming sales and gave motivation.
Excellent and under-rated movie~
Had never hear of the movie but it is great. Most of the cast is unknown, at least to me, and that adds to the realism.
