Fernando Rafael's Review of Changing the Game
Changing the Game(2012)
Drawing inspiration from Niccol˛ Machiavelli's "The Prince" and "Sun Tzu's The Art of War", THE classic, go-to books for strategists, be they salespeople, stockbrokers or sports coaches, "Changing the Game" finds the connection between the mean streets of Philly and the cutthroat world of Wall Street and spins a tale of a smart man's rise to the top of the ladder, achieving financial success with its share of intrigue, deception and danger, and tells it with a little bit of 80's flair. The acting's not going to set the world of fire, but the work of this certainly talented cast of unknowns is good and well-suited to the material. Tighter, seamless editing would've helped, as well as a more polished script, but all in all, "Changing the Game" is an interesting analogy between two worlds that seem different but are more alike than you might think.
