      • May 06, 2018

        Very entertaining, sometimes even exciting hostage thriller with a lot of commentaries on the socioeconomic state of the world. Director Jodie Foster can rely on outstanding acting performances and the editing makes for a very engaging film. As it progresses things become a tad more conventional, then again, a very preachy, sarcastic ending wouldn't have worked either. Ultimately, this is pretty satisfying while making you think about the injustice of the world.

        Intense and exciting, Money Monster is a controversial and provocative political thriller. The story follows the host of a financial television show who's held hostage on-air by a disgruntled investor who's intent on holding him accountable for his stock tips and demands answers as to why his top pick crashed. The cast is pretty solid; George Clooney and Julia Roberts in particular give very strong performances. And, the storytelling does a good job at building tension and at developing the mystery of the stock fall. Additionally, there's some rather clever satire about financial entertainment. Still, the plot is fairly predictable (though there are a few twists on some of the usual tropes). Yet, while it may lack in originality, Money Monster is a surprisingly smart and engaging film.

        "Money Monster" is preposterous -- yet entertaining in an unsophisticated way. It's hard to view the film as much more than a sop to the Occupy Wall Street crowd.

        Nothing special. Clooney basically plays Jim Cramer from Mad Money, Wall Street is evil, blah blah blah. The BIg Short basically did this all so much better and with great acting.
