What's with all the negative reviews ?
14 January 2020 | by mailitme-53519See all my reviews

I suspect all the negative reviews are by those who simply can't appreciate or comprehend how the city and its traders operate - and machinations of the goings on as exemplified this movie. This movie shows the city workings pretty well... albeit with some exaggeration. It was clever and it was quite believable... it showed exactly how companies prosper and fail because those that hold the stock, whether owners or short term traders can make or break a company.
