(This review may contain spoilers).
When I saw this movie advertised, I was immediately interested in watching it. While I don’t really understand much about stocks and stock prices, I did find this movie to be really entertaining to watch.
It was good to see there was a stark contrast between the feel of the show at the beginning of the movie and how the show had developed by the end of the movie.
Even though Kyle made some appallingly bad choices, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for him and it was good to see how he and Lee connected through the course of the movie.
I did find myself rolling my eyes a bit at how Patty seemed much more concerned about the ratings and less so about the safety of the people working in the studio, at least at first.
I found myself on the edge of my seat for most of the movie and it was good there was so much tension in the movie.
It was good to learn more about both Lee and Kyle, along with the action going on. It was also interesting to see the reactions of other people watching what was happening in cafes and bars around the town.
I didn’t like Diane’s character very much at first to begin with, but as the movie went on, she did grow on me quite a bit and I thought it was good to see how she was working to find out what was really happening as well.
While there wasn’t a lot of background on some of the more minor characters, I did find that the main ones were developed enough to make me care about what was going to happen to them. I didn’t think much of Arlene, even though she did give Lee and Kyle something to bond over.
The ending of the movie wasn’t a surprise, but I was still on the edge of my seat watching and this movie is probably one I’d want to watch again in the future.
