Josh Hartnett is brilliant as usual. The whole concept of the financial/business sector made sense, but the movie itself was just average.

Don't trust movie critics (generally smart people who majored in English and are annoyed they were left out of the tech boom) to rate this movie accurately. Some get it right, but many downplay it because it isn't a topic of Don't trust movie critics (generally smart people who majored in English and are annoyed they were left out of the tech boom) to rate this movie accurately. Some get it right, but many downplay it because it isn't a topic of interest to them. If you were touched by the dot-com bubble - for example, if you lost half your net worth when the NASDAQ collapsed, or especially if you worked in the dot-com industry back then - you will find this movie hard to stop watching. It's not perfect. Some dialogue is leaden, and there are subplots that get too much screen time. But worth watching if the subject matter is of interest. Expand

Much better than the ratings & reviews indicate. This is the first film I've seen that effectively captures that unbearable e-snottiness that flooded America during the dotcom craze.

This is the first film I've seen that effectively captures that unbearable e-snottiness that flooded America during the dotcom craze. The story is set in August 2001, which perhaps is still too recent in the public consciousness to be fairly objective. The cast is superb, including David Bowie who delivers a briliant albeit brief scene towards the end. Plus, there's no trace of those all to familiar "indie" film clichés that compel you to hit Eject (except for the score perhaps, which I found somewhat relentless.) Deserves to be re-evaluated, once we all grow up a little. Expand

I enjoyed this movie quite a bit, I even thought that it flowed like poetry (the pieces all fit together very well). Possibly Josh Hartnett's best performance yet, it seemed like the movie must have been written for him to play the lead I enjoyed this movie quite a bit, I even thought that it flowed like poetry (the pieces all fit together very well). Possibly Josh Hartnett's best performance yet, it seemed like the movie must have been written for him to play the lead role. Overall, the film does a good job of capturing the e-commerce, irrational exuberance of the early 2000's, late 1990's. Expand
