  It Suddenly Just Ends

You would think that with this cast giving this movie one star is just madness,but let me explain why.Margin Call starts off really well.The tension builds to the point where you prepare yourself for a big payoff........Which DOES NOT COME.Suddenly and without reason or closure this rubbish just ends.I am not lying when I say that I went back to the DVD menu sure that i'd watched only part one of what was obviously a Mini Series.Which of course it wasn't.So to sum it up Excellently Produced,Beautifully acted by all concerned but Really,Really Terrible execution of story.Avoid.

An all star cast of established names and up and comers star in first time film director J.C Chandor's fictionalised look at the onset of the financial crisis.

When a low level employee of a large New York firm (Star Trek's Zachary Quinto) realises the coming storm which will engulf the world he works in he goes to his superiors. Setting in motion a chain of events that will impact many.

Turning events into almost something like a real time thriller, Chandor starts off slow and then ratchets up the tension as he and his script explore Capitalism, Greed and Corporate mistakes. The cast are all appealing and play well in their parts and while it might not be a forensic level look at things it manages to take a very touchy time and fashion a solidly entertaining drama.

Worth a watch.

An intense watch around a contentious subject. Great casting that portray their characters well.
A good watch.
