5.0 out of 5 stars 'SURVIVAL AT ALL COSTS', 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Margin Call [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Must admit I missed this film when released on Blu-ray/DVD, I usually pick-up
on 'Kevin Spacey' movies.
(Saw a trailer when watching a movie a couple of days back)
The film is set in the 'dog eat dog' world of business dealings (stocks and shares)
on 'Wall Street' where money can be gained or lost with a blink of an eye.
During the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis, an operative unlocks information
that could finish the firm.
After an all night consultation when the seriousness of the situation is realized, a
frantic race to advert financial melt-down is triggered.
The team have to hold their nerve, having a conscience won't help.
A terrific cast list including 'Kevin Spacey' 'Paul Bettany' 'Jeremy Irons' 'Demi Moore'
and (Mr Spock) 'Zachary Quinto' are on board.
This movie is a 'spell-binding' 'Tense' and 'absorbing' finance driven drama....well
worth a spin

Hi Dealey
Thanks for your comments on my 'Margin Call' review.
Haven't seen the 'Glengarry Glen Ross' movie you
mentioned, might well give it a go.

It costs £5.80 at Amazon, and you will not regret it. Spacey, Pacino, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin. Jack Lemmon steals it. Written by David Mamet. Brilliant!

I'll give it a go, thanks dealey'

GGR is an excellent film, the casting in it is superb and the acting well, what do you expect with Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey etc etc. Personally I thought Alec Baldwin stole it but Jack Lemmon ran him a very close second. Its a film that sometimes turns up at 10.45pm on a Saturday or Sunday night on BBC2, as long as you don't mind the language in it it is an excellent film.

film on the recommendation of 'Dealey'
