Over the years there have been a few movies and documentaries telling the stories of big-bank-victims, as I prefer to call them. Movies like 'Margin Call', and documentaries like 'Inside Job'. Both movies tried to give a (somewhat), reconstruction of what happened during the crisis. Thank god, someone finally wrote a script about taking revenge on Wallstreet and Uwe Boll did a great job executing it. Certainly, the movie delivers on the title, Assault On Wallstreet.
The elements such as casting, cinematography and emotions are all surprisingly good, especially for a movie directed by Uwe Boll. To be honest, this director had managed to make a train wreck out of promising movies in the past, this being far from it. Foremost, the feeling of injustice and frustration for Jim Baxford (acted perfectly by Dominic Purcell), really gets under your skin. Also, news program quotes during the movie add a great effect about the message of anger of the people versus the big banks and CEO's directing them. All of this has been filmed and edited perfectly, meaning there is no moment when it's distracting because of CGI, or other trickery.
When I picked the movie, I expected a full-out action movie based on the poster. However I was surprised by the depth of the movie and action fans might get disappointed by the lack of action, it actually skips through most of it. But, the climax of the movie certainly delivered both action as story wise.
