The real crime in Money Monster is wasting all this talent on such a mediocre movie.

There is initial tension but halfway through, Foster takes a wrong turn, and what ensues is a meandering thriller disguised as social satire. What a waste of her all-star cast.

The topic is provocative, the stars top notch, and the director in comfortable command of her craft in Money Monster.

This is one of those inexplicable movies with all the right ingredients - cast, director, plot - that nonetheless goes wrong almost from the get-go.

Money Monster occasionally veers deep into the weeds of financial jargon -- quantitative analytics, dark pools, high-frequency trading -- but the filmmakers wisely opt to embrace the broad audience appeal of a frenetic conspiracy thriller.

We're not buying Money Monster, not even at a discount.
December 26, 2016
After a very strong start that pokes some nice satirical jabs at the media and the workings of the finance world, the film does default into a pretty standard, though entertaining affair.
