Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Several respectable actors offer dicey performances here, but Rappaport's screenplay is the real villain, expecting thin references to real-world financial peril to paper over gaping holes in credibility and plain-old drama.
Rotten: Too bad The Crash lives up to its inauspicious name.
Rotten: What is The Crash about? First off, it's about Mr. Rappaport's ability to get his film produced, and hats off to him for that, since it couldn't have made much sense on paper and hasn't grown in coherence on screen.
Rotten: These are all cartoon figures out of Frank Capra's most feverish populist nightmares.
I personally really enjoyed the film and am definitely recommending it to everyone I know!
An Emotional Thriller
So many of my favorite actors from the best tv shows, Gossip Girl, Nikita and Glee! I love Dianna Agron and Ed westwick and Maggie Q! Anna Sophiarobb should win best supporting actress or Minnie Driver, my mom and I cried during those scenes. The main character was amazing, I know my boyfriend is a big fan. I'm not into financial movies but the cast and subplot make it a great watch.
I rented this hoping to see a well thought out story. Instead, its lacking in any credible financial or technical basis and has an overdone sappy back story. I disliked the camera work too. If you'd like to see an intelligent story on a really important subject, then don't waste your money on this, it'll disappoint.
