Cox has managed to recruit great actors only to elicit bafflingly melodramatic and stilted work. Emma Roberts, as an aspiring artist and the only female character with more than a couple speaking lines, is particularly wasted.
Cox finds himself doing a poor imitation of Martin Scorsese, channeling the manic hedonism of both "Goodfellas" and "The Wolf of Wall Street," minus the seductive magnetism of either film's central performance.
It's a derivative bore, all popped collars, douchey bros and hand-me-down psychology, that gets its characters up to their necks in borrowed money just long enough to have it really hurt when the accounts run dry.
The movie delves into a weak exploration of Hunt's private life.
As Hunt's life unravels, so does the movie, though the story maintains a certain baseline of interest just by virtue of being sordid.
Why a director would try so hard to clean up the image of an inhuman convicted felon beggars belief.
It should... be avoided like a contagious rash.
... more concerned with shallow period details than any meaningful moral complexity or contemporary resonance.
Billionaire Boys Club would fail even if Kevin Spacey's career hadn't crashed.
Vivid performances from Elgort and Egerton make it worth watching.
Even this star studded cast couldn't fool audiences into investing their money for this one.
Cox aims for a superficial overview of swindling, fragile egos, and revenge, trying to play it cool with real-world horrors that deserve more frightening screen representation.
