The story takes some fanciful turns (particularly during the third act) that would have made more sense on a vintage episode of Walker: Texas Ranger. But Christopher Plummer delivers a superb performance.

The problem with ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD comes with the editing. Although serviceable, we essentially have three stories, but the connective tissue is missing to make it feel cohesive, with pacing and fluidity failing to ratchet up any tension.

The film manages to keep itself together until the last act, but at that point things begin to drag and the movie's passionate message overtakes the plot in several melodramatic scenes that were almost painful to watch.

I would file this under "nonessential" in Scott's filmography, as it doesn't give you more than a few hours of intrigue.

Now, if only they had replaced Mark Wahlberg, too, because he's acting in a far blander picture than Plummer and co-star Michelle Williams.

Nine days to reshoot the scenes in which Christopher Plummer replaced the tainted Kevin Spacey as the elder Getty...Since the film's virtues are its shoddy, knock-off quality and its '70s phoniness, shooting faster might have brought that out even more.

A lot of money, little virtue. [Full review in Spanish]

An annoying movie that, very probably, will end up becoming an anecdotal footnote of the cultural times that we are living. [Full review in Spanish]

All The Money in the World is a film propped up on absolutely dispensable characters, like the one played by Mark Wahlberg. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 25, 2018
There's nothing in the first two thirds of All the Money in the World that isn't pure plot transmission. It's based on the most literal-minded kind of narrative expediency and is a total chore to sit through.
January 25, 2018
Mark Wahlberg's fixer character, Fletcher Chase, is superfluous and feels jammed into the story to provide a musclebound foil to Williams' femininity.
January 17, 2018
The trouble is that Plummer's performance, which is unapologetic and deliciously mean, overshadows all the others.
January 9, 2018
As an indictment of vile capitalist swine, Ridley Scott's fact-based melodrama has a satisfying flavor, but it's hindered by a lack of focus.
January 8, 2018
The film is far less interesting than the scandals surrounding its development. Despite a handful of memorable visual flourishes and some decent performances, it fails to determine whose story it's interested in unfolding.

There's one thing money can't buy, and that is our attention

It doesn't make for particularly thrilling viewing until the film's final third, which sees the kidnappers beginning to get as annoyed as the audience is about the dragged-out ransom plotline.
January 6, 2018
Ultimately it's Plummer's show. Some hurried CG work aside, he's the film's most credible presence and its only point of nuanced human interest.
January 5, 2018
As All the Money in the World chugs along there are precious few moments of either intrigue or suspense to rally around.
January 5, 2018
All the Money in the World is too stolid and sluggish to distract us from its own behind-the-scenes drama.
January 5, 2018
A portrait of one man's greed but it can never push past constantly questioning the allure of wealth while going through the beats of a true tale.
