Critic Reviews for $upercapitalist

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (9)

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

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.

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

Top Critic

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.

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