Critic Reviews for $upercapitalist

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (9)

The dull, hectoring financial melodrama "Supercapitalist" has all the spark of a high school assembly skit about not letting friends drive drunk.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Whatever the makers of "$upercapitalist" had in mind, what they've created is a clunky and cliched melodrama set in the world of international high finance.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

A Walmart "Wall Street," the hedge-fund drama "Supercapitalist" is junk merchandise stamped "made in China."

New York Post
Top Critic

Dry as new bank notes and doggedly uncinematic, Simon Yin's "$upercapitalist" approaches the seamy side of international finance with a story as stale as the subprime meltdown.

New York Times
Top Critic

Filled with enough clichés (finance culture seems to have the same frat-boy DNA the world over, bro) to be broken up and sold in pieces as junk material.

New York Daily News
Top Critic

$upercapitalist seems naïve about both the market and the humans who operate in it.

$upercapitalist" exposes the heady, fast-paced, amoral world of New York/Hong Kong high finance

Full Review… | August 23, 2012
culturevulture.net

Ultimately plodding and resolutely old-fashioned, a corporate thriller for folks too square to indulge the possible existence of hungers so strong they must be satisfied at any cost.

Full Review… | August 8, 2012
Slant Magazine

Makes you wonder whether Britain and China were wrong to allow Hong Kong to remain a free-market capitalist province--though the movie does not compare in quality to "Wall Street."
