Money Monster is a tightly wound, kinetic and assured outing from Foster, with a class cast at her fingertips.

Foster deftly handles tonal shifts between humour, satire and comment to deliver a timely and thrilling entertainer.

While it may fail to reach its loftier ambitions, Money Monster is a tightly controlled and highly entertaining thriller with a standout performance from Jack O'Connell at its centre.

Even though its premise is rather obvious, that doesn't mean it's not a rather well-made and entertaining film.

Money Monster is a ticking clock action thriller; nothing more.

If you've seen the trailer of MONEY MONSTER, you may be able to predict the film's third act endgame to a tee, but it's the dedication to craft a film that let's the audience think for themselves.

All play well together under the direction of Jodie Foster, who keeps a tight rain on the production and doesn't self indulge by drawing everything out - the film is a crisp hour and a half.

Asks us to revisit emotions we've already processed and would rather relive as comedy - something The Big Short accomplished to Oscar-winning effect.

Too beholden to the generic conventions of the contemporary action thriller and too in love with television to compete as a film.

Money Monster is a solid functioning mixture of Summer popcorn entertainment and worthwhile, socially relevant themes to ponder
