    Blessed with some outstanding performances, among them Ribisi's.

    Fast-paced editing doesn't compensate for unconvincing dialogue.

    Superb acting and an intriguing dramatic storyline makes Boiler Room a great movie few have heard of. Fantastic performances abound by Ribisi, Diesel, Long, Katt, Canan, and Affleck. The storyline is fast paced and takes you into the world of greed and crime. It is hard to feel sympathetic for anyone in the movie but at the same time one grieves with the predicament of Ribisi and hopes that Diesel escapes with a bit of dignity. I wouldn't have expected to like this reading the synopsis and looking at the cover art but I have to say I was quite surprised by how much it has stuck in my mind after seeing it. Full Review »
