Quotes

Ron Levin: I had been working at Rothschild for a year. When suddenly I found myself thrown in front of a discipline committee and was forced to defend myself. And... I had nothing. 21 stories and none of them good. So I came clean.
Joe Hunt: They take your license?
Ron Levin: No, I mean they could have, they should have, but no. Because what I was doing wasn't illegal... yet. I was ahead of the law. I mean, it was unethical and corrupt. Immoral if you believe in that sort of thing. But it wasn't illegal, so they had nothing....

Good movie but very reminiscent of other films
17 July 2018 | by tkaine3See all my reviews

This movie doesn't take long to kick into gear and has a pretty fast pace. The acting is good and the music is retro pop giving you that late 80's early 90's fun disco vibe. But the movie is based on a true story and that adds to the storylines authenticity but young guys starting a investment firm and getting in over their heads is a story too commonly told. This story does however go further on the tragedy scale then other movies about broker's or investors but when you watch these films that cover this topic it's always like watching a slow train wreck and this feature is no different. I do think this movie has some entertainment value but just a little.

I give this film a fair rating which means it's something worth watching but only when you get some free time don't go cancelling any appointments this movie can wait.
