A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
Tom and Josh Sterling have a start-up dot-com. It's gone public to initial success. Josh is the technical genius. Tom is the fast-talking and abrasive CEO, in charge of the business side. It's August, 2001, less than a month before they can sell their shares and, perhaps, make lots of money. But the company is running out of cash, its main client is stalling, and share values are falling. For Tom to maintain the firm's appearance, he must find cash: investors could rescue him, but at a high cost of his potential wealth and company control. Tom goes to his brother for a loan. At the same time, an old flame, Sarrah, comes back to the city. Can Tom hold things together, bravura and all? Written by
Either I'm very intelligent, or this movie was pointless.
I won't waste your time with a long review. Let's just say I figured out the ending to the movie about five minutes into it. I knew what was going to happen, why it was going to happen, and had a good idea of how it was going to happen. This movie will drag you through repeated nonsense. It beats a dead horse over and over. Then the credits roll. Save yourself time and money and watch something else. If you want to watch an interesting business or market movie, watch Wall Street or even Boiler Room. Don't waste your time here.
I now see that I need ten lines in order to have a valid review. Here are my ninth and tenth lines. Josh Hartnett should stick to acting, NOT producing movies.
