The fusion project depicted in the movie is based on work at the National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, which Oliver Stone toured during production. The graphics used to show the process are very similar to and derived from animations viewable at the National Ignition Facility website. See more »
The scene which allegedly shows Zurich, Switzerland was obviously not shot there. Zurich trams are blue, not red. (It was shot in Prague.) See more »
This movie was all over the place and yet vapid and empty. Nothing hooks you in. If the picture was not high quality and "professional" looking I would give this less stars. Probably a 1 star.
After watching it I thought I would rather have watched a biography on Bernard Madoff or some other cable television show. At least there is development and the plot makes some sense. Wall Street is as rambling as this review!
The fact that it is rated as a 6.3 on IMDb will make me question the ratings I see in the future. It's unfathomable that people are rating this 7,8, and above.
