Goofs

That is not the Twin Towers in that scene, it's the new tower in the left with a apt building on the right in the foreground, the direction of the shot from Bklyn gives the illusion the building being next to each other. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
Jim Baxford: [voice-over] I'm still alive and free and I promise I will keep killing. They should all know that I am out there, a soldier of the people... and if the government, the prosecutors and the judges fail on their duty, I will not fail on mine.

Want truth? Watch this. Want entertainment only? Do not watch.
13 May 2013 | by ymom11-684-755726See all my reviews

There is a lot of truth in this movie. I do not care if you are Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or other, if you listen closely the rants and the facts in the background of the movie should ring true. We are all slaves to the system and also the "old money" described in one of the later rants. However, remember that many middle or even high level employees and owners of Wall Street have no idea they work for a corrupt system.

I believe that the acting and atmosphere were solid, especially for a low budget movie. However, the movie was a bit romanticized and unrealistic.

I would recommend this movie to someone who is yearning for a better understanding of politics, money in general, and who wants to also be mildly entertained. I would not recommend this movie to anyone who watches for the sole purpose of being entertained, it cannot compete with other movies in terms of pure entertainment value.
