    This film is a nice movie, have a contemporary approach to social problems, have in mind the low budget too, you cant expect the lord of the rings with a budget like this. may sound dangerous but is a cathartic experience. A must see for reflexion

    Good god man... it's an action/revenge movie. It's not supposed to get great scores... but if this is what you're looking for I give it a "9". Again, only if this is what you're looking for.

    The build-up they give you for revenge fodder is fantastic... the main character is a badass and the underlying message is anti-capitalism and shows you just how powerless honest working people are.

    The build-up they give you for revenge fodder is fantastic... the main character is a badass and the underlying message is anti-capitalism and shows you just how powerless honest working people are. The great part about the main character are his responses in the movie, he's a simple honest working man and has the simplicity of Rambo.

    If you're pissed off because the economy and politics this will help relax you. To be honest I'm not sure how they got away with doing this movie. I loved it, for what it was, not what it could be.

    A few gripes that could have made it better:
    - a little more dialogue with the main character (i.e. when he's getting the shaft from the lawyer)
    - perhaps a bit more artistic license from the perspective of the main character and how he's feeling.

    The speech by Mr. Corporate at the end was a shocker, again, how the hell did they get away with this. Surprised it wasn't banned.

    excellent movie, hit on all points of the wall street mafia criminals who suck-up wealth from the entire American population. confiscation of Americans wealth thru printing of paper money-inflation-graduated tax system-- ensure the u.s. private central bank (federal 'reserve) get more and more of American's earnings. the terrorists live on wall street and in the fed bank and quietly killexcellent movie, hit on all points of the wall street mafia criminals who suck-up wealth from the entire American population. confiscation of Americans wealth thru printing of paper money-inflation-graduated tax system-- ensure the u.s. private central bank (federal 'reserve) get more and more of American's earnings. the terrorists live on wall street and in the fed bank and quietly kill many American's thru confiscation and theft of American's wealth. but that is ok...they usually do not use guns in your face but use computer systems and political spin. no blood on the street, so, no crime, eh?
    great, great movie....material that mainstream-production studios, tied to the white house, know better than to touch, as do 'a' list movie stars. all actors-actresses had guts being in this movie...THEY are patriots. the wall streeters are terrorists and traitors against America. they will burn it all down. this movie points the way and yes, you too, are in for it. just wait. in 10 years kids, your dollars will buy little to nothing.
    we knew, we knew, we knew, main street critics would hate hate hate this movie!!! knew it. it exposes the white asses of their masters, the wall street boys and the fed bank boys. look for more 'independent' movies like this AND expect the same reviews by main stream critics....the main stream critics must slam movies like these....their masters order them and pay them well to slam it. hey critic boys, you and your masters will lose. we will bring you down.

    It's not the worst idea for a revenge fantasy, but Jim's payback is so lacking in logic and reality, not to mention tension, that it proves more laughable than cathartic.

    What’s obnoxious is that it’s never in doubt where Assault On Wall Street is headed, and it seems to believe there’s a certain poetry to taking its time turning Baxford into a non-verbal Travis Bickle.

    An hour of these repetitive, predictable disasters should wear down all but the most bailout-hating viewers.
