'The Crash': Film Review

13 January 2017 2:08 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Old to-catch-a-thief cliches get dusted off and mangled in The Crash, Aram Rappaport's macroeconomic technodrama in which a stock-market hacker is recruited by the feds to protect the New York Stock Exchange from unknown terrorists. No film in which the Chairman of the Federal Reserve (played here by Christopher McDonald) is the most colorful character can be said to have much grip on reality, but this one is further off the mark than even that suggests; theatrically and on video, its stock will tank quickly enough to test the reflexes of a high-frequency trading algorithm.

Movie Review: The Crash is a poor man’s financial thriller

10 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Part rejected network pilot, part Michael Crichton-esque what-if, the clumsy, cheap-looking sort-of thriller The Crash presents a very near future in which the U.S. government secretly enlists a white-collar crook from Chicago named Guy Clifton (Frank Grillo) to put together a team of hackers and analysts who can stop an imminent computer attack on the stock market. Whatever fun one might have with this junky premise is neutralized by the fact that the movie has zero narrative momentum. At once oversimplified and overcomplicated—the type of film where shadowy elites cackle sinisterly while meeting at an abandoned carnival in broad daylight—The Crash fumbles between bad diatribe and bad domestic drama, complete with subplots about absent parents and childhood cancer. Only occasionally does writer-director Aram Rappaport remember that what he’s supposed to be making is a bad techno-thriller, the kind where people shout information at each other »
