Kind of a 'Wallstreet' light. I like it, but don't believe any of it would really happen. At least not to this extent. Although there have been stories about really wealthy ponzi schemes, this isn't that at all. Giovanni is amazing. The guy should get more recognition for his acting, but he never has.

It is very refreshing seeing Ribisi finally playing a good guy. He delivers an outstanding performance and has a great chemistry with Vin Diesel.
A movie similar to the movie classic "Wall Street" and yet different.
We once again get taken into the world of stocks and brokers and it is done in such a lovely way that it is just a joy to watch.
"Boiler Room" is another movie that shows the audience how dangerous the stock market can be for both, broker and customer. This movie, unlike other movie with a similar theme, also focus on the effect of the sales and stocks on the customers not only the brokers. It shows us how destructive just a single sale can be and how easily a simple hard working citizen can loose everything, including their family.
In conclusion we can say that "Boiler Room" doesn't quiet hold up as good as "Wall Street" but it most certainly is a close second.

An interesting look into the corrupt world of stock trading and sales. Most impressive is a fine showing from Giovanni Ribisi. The film could have ended on a stronger note. (First and only viewing - 2/2/2017)

Where Wall Street told you greed is good this movie at least has a conscience, it just could have done a lot more with it.

All the sales techniques used in this movie were so old and outdated. In reality no one would "buy" into these 1980's closing techniques.... Way too fake and obvious. That said, it's a good movie for teenagers and college kids for entertainment purposes only. If you're using this movie as a training video for your sales team, well..... Good luck with that.....

My favorite "stock market" movie. I prefer this movie over Wall Street any time.

Great Performances from all the cast especially the lead actor who brings to life a very complex character. In the end, Boiler room is a good film.

Enjoyable to watch. The ending was a little boring but the rest of the movie is well written. You can tell that the writers knew what they were writing about. The acting is good as you can believe how the characters deal with issues they are dealing with.

This is even better than Wall Street, thanks to its fast pacing, engaging plot and a finely written script. The film also benefits from a terrific cast who give credible performances including Ben Affleck, Ron Rifkin and Vin Diesel. One more interesting thing is the number of movie references they make in the movie.

Boiler Room is a weak entry in the "Wall Street" category of movies. It is cheap, poorly acted and weakly scripted. Watch this if you are a fan of the genre, otherwise take a pass if you are looking for drama. Certainly do not watch this if you have not watched Oliver Stone's "Wall Street".

An engaging drama about Wall Street is destroyed by a rushed and incomplete ending. Wall Street for the new millenium? No, it wasn't. Wolf of Wall Street is much better. 70/100
