The dull, hectoring financial melodrama "Supercapitalist" has all the spark of a high school assembly skit about not letting friends drive drunk.
Whatever the makers of "$upercapitalist" had in mind, what they've created is a clunky and cliched melodrama set in the world of international high finance.
A Walmart "Wall Street," the hedge-fund drama "Supercapitalist" is junk merchandise stamped "made in China."
Dry as new bank notes and doggedly uncinematic, Simon Yin's "$upercapitalist" approaches the seamy side of international finance with a story as stale as the subprime meltdown.
Filled with enough clichés (finance culture seems to have the same frat-boy DNA the world over, bro) to be broken up and sold in pieces as junk material.
$upercapitalist seems naïve about both the market and the humans who operate in it.
$upercapitalist" exposes the heady, fast-paced, amoral world of New York/Hong Kong high finance
Ultimately plodding and resolutely old-fashioned, a corporate thriller for folks too square to indulge the possible existence of hungers so strong they must be satisfied at any cost.
Makes you wonder whether Britain and China were wrong to allow Hong Kong to remain a free-market capitalist province--though the movie does not compare in quality to "Wall Street."
Lensed with a tiresome gloss meant to mimic the seduction of the Asian metropolitan high life and filled with clumsily didactic talking points and inadequate performances ...
Even caped do-gooders couldn't save Supercapitalist...
