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 ...

Just to kill time
1 February 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a finance guru, who is convicted of some financial crime. The government gets him to stop a cyber attack on the American stock market, but he finds out the truth is actually different than he is led to believe.

The first minutes of the film may have been completely lost on me, as I'm still unclear what crime has Guy been convicted of. Is the stopping of the cyber attack a part of an exoneration deal? It would have been nice to find out. Anyway, the story is a little thin, as you can tell from the film length and from the lack of details in the plot. The supposed moral struggle by Guy is not obvious at all. The part where they have done computer generated lights running along a cable to indicate signals being transmitted in the cable got me laughing. This is such a primitive way to convey this message! After all, it is just a film to kill time, but don't expect to much.
