This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. What a disappointment! Considering the cast -- and the start of the film -- I was expecting a smart, edgy tale of corrupt financiers gone amok in the Big Apple. What I got was yet another melodrama about a middle-aged slickster whose affair with a younger woman takes a tragic turn, and his machinations to avoid the consequences. It's been done better by everyone from Adrian Lyne to Woody Allen. Actually, it's been done better on TV series like "Damages." Expand

This is perhaps one of the worst films of the year. The script is poor; the ending is non-existent; Susan Sarandon flounces around in ill-fitting and unbecoming clothes. Were Richard Gere no a handsome man, this film would have goneThis is perhaps one of the worst films of the year. The script is poor; the ending is non-existent; Susan Sarandon flounces around in ill-fitting and unbecoming clothes. Were Richard Gere no a handsome man, this film would have gone immediately to video. Expand

A second rate entertainment masquerading as an A list movie. Arbitrage is like a routine episode of a low grade tv drama series complete with an ineffectual detective here played by Tim Roth. Richard Gere seems to be forever walkingA second rate entertainment masquerading as an A list movie. Arbitrage is like a routine episode of a low grade tv drama series complete with an ineffectual detective here played by Tim Roth. Richard Gere seems to be forever walking somewhere, and Susan Sarandon is quite frankly wasted aside from the last confrontational scene with Gere which is probably the best scene in the film. The abrupt ending just reinforces just how futile the whole enterprise is. Expand
