Boiler Room Reviews
Giovanni Ribisi is a great underrated actor and this is just one of his performances that proves it. Throughout the movie he is trying to impress his overbearing dad played by Ron Rifkin. The relationship between father and son in the movie is a theme that works and is executed very well. Vin Diesel, Scott Caan, and Ben Affleck also show up in the movie in smaller roles with all three hitting it out of the park with good performances.
The interesting choice of using hip hop music throughout the movie was surprising, but it also really works. At first it doesn't seem like it would fit, but as the movie goes on you can tell that it was the perfect choice.
Boiler Room is a really good movie. It may not be as crazy or as good as The Wolf of Wallstreet(which is actually based off the same true story), but it can certainly hold it's own.
