Storyline

The London branch of Whitney Paine, a major American investment bank, is in the midst of a crisis; after the loss of $100 million, one of their leading traders, Tony Eisner commits suicide by putting a slug through his head while seated at his place in the board room. Despite the high stakes, many of the firm's staff are eager to step into Tony's now-vacated shoes and get credit for saving the company. Daniel Pascoe, the leading trader at the firm, is convinced that he's first in line for the assignment, but the firm imports a new trader from America, Anna Schuman. Daniel is enraged and makes a point of trying to dig up as much dirt on Anna as he can, but things are going to take another turn. Written by Ørnås

Stupid and Poorly Written
15 June 1999 | by (London, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Dealers is a boring, messy cliché of a film. It is yet another one of those films that portrays the world of finance as a high-energy, high stakes game of egos and questionable morality. In reality, playing with other people's money as recklessly as the people in this movie do will end in negligence lawsuits or bankruptcy (a la Barings Bank).

On the cinematic front, this is not a good film. The script is poor and the acting isn't much better. Rebecca DeMornay is nice to look at but just isn't credible. This movie seems to have been made to cash in on the bull market mentality of the Eighties. There are generous doses of Oliver Stone's slightly-better Wall Street in this film, although it is closer in mentality to Top Gun than anything else.

A complete waste of time.
