Storyline

Around the world everyone knows that honest hard work gets you nowhere.

Carver seduces Nash into a risky world of scamming and stealing from the banks and the government; he teaches Nash how the rich get richer. Living a double life, Nash hides his new boss and job from his family. He rises fast and makes real money; he dreams bigger. But there is a cost. On Carver's orders, Nash must evict honest families from their homes - just as it happened to him. Nash's conscience starts tearing him apart... but his son needs a home. In a...

Goofs

Simple admissions of guilt someone in a stressful situation is not going to cause the police to immediately arrest you. Nash was facing an armed man who clearly wasn't bent upon self injury or perhaps harming others. Even if he "admitted" his alleged guilt in a criminal matter, the police would have required more evidence (such as the event had actual occurred) before they could arrest him. See more »

User Reviews

 
I liked the first half
11 May 2016 | by snshSee all my reviews

The movie starts out well, and the first eviction scene will leave you shaking in your boots imagining your family and belongings getting foreclosed and tossed into the street. I can't think of another film that focuses on the eviction process so intensely.

You're better skipping the end of the movie (after the scene with the old man). The last forty minutes of the film are not satisfying at all, and just gets dumb with characters acting more and more ridiculously. In the beginning of the movie, many of the characters act over the top for the sake of dramatic tension, but it it gets to be too much towards the end.
