Superbly acted
5 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

At the age of 23 i can remember when Robert Maxwell died, this TV film does a great job of explaining some of the mystery behind the man, David Suchet is superb as the control Freak that is Captain Bob.

Anyone who likes the Wallstreet "greed is good" type will enjoy this, but spare a thought for the people who lost pensions, and a good quality of life in their old age. Cant wait for the DVD!

The tenacity of the man is quite superb in terms of business, but also a sense of a man craving someone to love him (which is apparently quite an apt observation from what I've read about him). The way in which people around him never seem to be able to truly work out what he is going to do is truly the sign of a mans true power. Pension stuff aside is he really worse than Rupert Murdoch (Maxwells great enemy)?
