With the clock ticking, Tom has put his career, his reputation and his life in jeopardy to protect Abbey and expose the truth about the deal.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 31 Dec. 2005
Format: DVD
Here's a film that doesn't seem to have gotten a fair shake. The Deal is a darn good story about corruption, greed, oil, politics, murder, and all sorts of nasty things going on behind Wall Street doors by some of those three-piece suit types. Christian Slater is a fine actor, Selma Blair proves quite charming, and no movie has ever been hurt by the casting of Robert Loggia. The fact that such a story is all too believable in today's world serves as a hook of sorts - or maybe not. All I know is that The Deal is an effective thriller featuring some nice plot twists (although I did see some of them coming - and I'm not usually that good at picking up on things) inside a juicy story.
Here's the setting for the film: America is at war with the "Confederation of Arab states," gas is over six bucks a gallon and going nowhere but up, and the economy is seriously on the skids. Condor, led by its celebrated CEO Jared Tolson (Loggia), is working on a deal to ease America's gas shortage (not to mention fatten his pockets to overflowing) - a merger with Blackstar, a Russian company with deep oil reserves in Kazakhstan (well, supposedly). All he needs is a hot-shot Wall Street wonderboy from a prestigious company to sweet talk his board into accepting the deal - and that's where Tom Grover (Slater) comes in (after candidate #1, Grover's best friend, gets iced at the start of the movie). Grover works for an ultra-prestigious firm that is also feeling the economic crunch and could certainly use the $25 million dollars Tom will bring in just by helping Tolson sell the merger. He signs on, even though he isn't exactly an expert at evaluating geological reports, etc.

The Deal is quite an interesting thriller revolving around an oil deal that has Russian Mafia involvement when Tom (Christian Slater) find out the oil isn't really coming from the fields from which the deals state. With government cover-ups and murder also taking part in this story of oil trading cover-ups, the plot can sometimes be a little complex for it's own good with too many characters. Although there are too many characters, the cast that plays them are excellent. Slater gives a better than average performance in the lead and Selma Blair, Robert Loggia, Colm Feore, Angie Harmon, John Heard and Francoise Yip are among those who give great support. One of the best things about The Deal is it does well in making you unaware of who is working undercover for the Ethics Committee until the very end. It drags a little in the middle, and the story is nothing new but it's a solid thriller and they didn't cop out for the ending. High end of rent it. 3/5

An above average movie. The script and delivery did not have a 'biting' thriller effect

The Deal is a pretty big deal of a movie 1 Nov. 2005
By Daniel Jolley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Here's a film that doesn't seem to have gotten a fair shake. The Deal is a darn good story about corruption, greed, oil, politics, murder, and all sorts of nasty things going on behind Wall Street doors by some of those three-piece suit types. Christian Slater is a fine actor, Selma Blair proves quite charming, and no movie has ever been hurt by the casting of Robert Loggia. The fact that such a story is all too believable in today's world serves as a hook of sorts - or maybe not. All I know is that The Deal is an effective thriller featuring some nice plot twists (although I did see some of them coming - and I'm not usually that good at picking up on things) inside a juicy story.

Here's the setting for the film: America is at war with the "Confederation of Arab states," gas is over six bucks a gallon and going nowhere but up, and the economy is seriously on the skids. Condor, led by its celebrated CEO Jared Tolson (Loggia), is working on a deal to ease America's gas shortage (not to mention fatten his pockets to overflowing) - a merger with Blackstar, a Russian company with deep oil reserves in Kazakhstan (well, supposedly). All he needs is a hot-shot Wall Street wonderboy from a prestigious company to sweet talk his board into accepting the deal - and that's where Tom Grover (Slater) comes in (after candidate #1, Grover's best friend, gets iced at the start of the movie). Grover works for an ultra-prestigious firm that is also feeling the economic crunch and could certainly use the $25 million dollars Tom will bring in just by helping Tolson sell the merger. He signs on, even though he isn't exactly an expert at evaluating geological reports, etc. That's actually one of the reasons he was chosen, though - Tolson's boys aren't exactly high on Grover doing a lot of research on the fields in question.

Representing the forces of good is Abbey Gallagher (Blair), a Harvard graduate who wants to save the world and has an innovative idea for helping those seeking alternative energy sources further their research. The snake pit of Wall Street is the last place she wants to be, but Gordon convinces her that his company can make her alternative energy dream a reality (because the company can make money by doing so). The two become close (apparently, Gordon has no qualms about dating an employee), which ultimately puts Abby in danger when Gordon finds out some disturbing truths about his big deal with Tolson. That, of course, sets the stage for a suspenseful ending. With himself and Abby in danger, his company sitting on a potential time bomb that could bring it to its knees, and - lest we forget - the national security interests of the whole country at stake, what will Gordon do? What can he do?

The Deal never manages to be edge-of-your-seat thrilling, but it is certainly suspenseful. It's also quite relevant in today's world of government corruption, unethical business practices, and moral ambiguity. The deal itself is the kind of thing J.R. Ewing would probably be cooking up if Dallas were still on the air - but J.R. would have done a better job of it.

Very timely in today's world 26 Jun. 2005
By Irene Flynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I can'wait to own this DVD. I just saw the movie in the theatre and it is riviting and so "today". Christian Slater is an executive in a financial company on Wall Street. His current assignment is to evaluate if a Russian oil company is a good investment for an American company. During his investigation maps of Russian oil fields bring up suspicions that lead to danger for him and an associate. Robert Loggia plays a pivotal role as the CEO of the American company and Slater's co-star is Selma Blair. This is worth seeing! One of the best movies I have seen in a long time!

Good movie but slow 10 Aug. 2012
By Jacob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The deal got a bad review because it points out corruption in are system.

While the movie is slow it does tell a great story.

I believe the deal shows the real side of a corrupt society. This movie is fiction but it shows what people will do for the power and money.

"It is a revoultionary act to tell the truth in a nation,society, and world full of deciet and lies."

One of my favorite actors. 9 Jun. 2014
By Marilyn Thacker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie was better than I thought it would be. I bought it because Kevin Tighe was in it, and he is one of my favorite actors.
The service was very good and the movie was in a good condition. Thanks.
Lacking tension 23 Feb. 2010
By Bradley F. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A distinct lack of dramatic tension afflicts this summer release thriller, but Christian Slater really isn't too bad as the corporate lawyer at the center of a corrupt oil deal at a time in the future when U.S. gas is at $6 a gallon. This came out in '05 before the $4 gallon gas of '08 almost made the movie unexpectedly prescient. Robert Loggia is also pretty good as the corporate tycoon who brokers the deal. A few people get shot. Hey, this is Hollywood. The romances have some heat, too. I'm surprised this one is so under the radar. It's worth a watch on a slow weeknight.
