Movie Info

A maverick New York hedge fund trader moves to Hong Kong and orchestrates a mega-deal that swiftly escalates beyond his control. Caught between competing forces in America and Asia in a ruthless culture of profits at all costs, he desperately negotiates and maneuvers inside China's closed, complex society. With his life and Hong Kong's future staked on a corrupt billion dollar deal, the trader takes the ultimate risk. -- (C) Official Site

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

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.

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

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.

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.

$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

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.

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."
