Childish and shallow financial soap-opera
11 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I guess my expectations with this film were high in terms of getting another glimpse into what really happens in the corporate world. To experience first hand what goes in these top execs ' minds when dealing with high stress situations. ( think of Hank Paulson's character in "too big too fail" as an example or Tim Geithner in the same film, where you could actually feel the world economy tanking due to misuse and abuse of cds - credit default swaps - unless they took corrective action). This film not only is poorly acted, but lacks any remote hint at accurately portraying the actual challenges of a global organization, making up a complex plot involving global executives with the only real goal to showcase the extravagant lifestyle of these executives, flying in private falcon jets to supposedly exotic destinations (if you can call New York, Paris, London, and Miami as "exotic".. come on folks) and resourcing to a cheap affair/obsession between a supposedly world supermodel and the main character. The Director and producers should have a closer look at what the film industry is creating in "real-life-inspired films" which they were trying to emulate in this film, not only finance related but political also (the ides of march, game change), and you can rapidly notice the amount of research and rigor that goes into the intricacies of the plot, which this film totally lacks. Please, don't waste your valuable 120 minutes on this, trust me.
