Storyline

Set in the future when the US economy is on the brink of yet another massive financial crisis, The Crash tells the story of Guy Clifton (Frank Grillo), a federally-indicted stock trader, who is secretly enlisted by the federal government to help thwart a cyber-attack aimed at the US stock markets - an attack that could permanently cripple the economy. Our 'richer than God' protagonist is charged with assembling a team capable of running the government's top secret 'shadow stock exchange' in an attempt to keep the markets from mass panic in the event the cyber-hijack is successful. Having only ever been fueled by his love of money, Guy fully intends to use his insider knowledge of this world catastrophe for personal gain until he unearths the organization behind the attack and discovers its motives. For the first time in his life, Guy is challenged to make decisions not only for himself, but also for the good of his country - decisions that are rooted in morality rather than dollar ...

One Stinkeroo of a Movie
15 February 2017 | by larrys3See all my reviews

I'm wholeheartedly in agreement with almost all the reviewers here that this is one stinkeroo of a movie. There actually is an excellent cast in the film, but the question of how they all agreed to appear in this mess is one I can't answer.

It centers on the attempts to hack into and crash the worldwide financial systems so a few greedy profiteers can thus take advantage and make even more money for themselves. Writer and director Adam Rappaport obviously has an agenda here, and there are certainly some valid financial truths to be told. However, the way the film is presented, in such an amateurish way, and filled with tons of clichéd and stilted dialogue was a real turnoff for me. To note, there's very explicit language laced throughout the movie.

All in all, I felt like I wasted an hour and half viewing this mess of a film.
