Critic Reviews for $upercapitalist

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (8)

The dull, hectoring financial melodrama "Supercapitalist" has all the spark of a high school assembly skit about not letting friends drive drunk.

Top Critic

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.

New York Times
Top Critic

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.

Audience Reviews for $upercapitalist

Good grief. This movie was Super HORRIBLE. I cannot believe I wasted time watching this. Avoid, avoid, avoid!!

It's only a matter of time before we see a truly great film about the riveting world of international high finance. Too bad the makers behind Supercapitalist screwed this one up. Too many flaws make this botched financial thriller unwatchable. The lead barely comes across as a professional actor. The supporting cast is talented but their talents are wasted on this film. Supercapitalist is a clumsy effort that turns out bad even by low budget indie standards.

I love conspiracy movies and really loved the fact that this was a universal human story set in Asia. Definitely could have cut some scenes, but overall really enjoyed it!
