Brilliant film! Great cast. Fantastic screenplay. While I'm not an expert in business/economics, the dialogue in this film was engrossing and powerful. One of my favorites of 2011 and one of the best as well! I plan to watch this again soon.

Excellent script, very good performances. Director/Writer JC Chandor has done it to turn a serious topic into a packing drama. Worth a watch!

An exceptional cast can only do so much with a story that, as mentioned by others, is just a bit boring. The story is quite topical and intriguing, but board room drama just isn't punchy enough to make that big of impression. Still, for a nice look into the financial crisis, it's worth it just for actors involved.

Set in a busy Wall Street, a company works and stays up overnight to find a solution to the problem that might kill the company the next day. *** I didn't expect much from this film as a whole so I was not that disappointed when I get to see this overnight drama. Bad points, this bores everyone who are not into this kind of theme, a money drama, and the movie featured not much of exciting scenes, not even dialogues. THOUGH, I really commend the actors who made this film A BIT watchable. The cast, in general, knows how to deal with this kind of film.

A well-acted, if a little talky, drama inspired by the Lehman Brothers collapse. A tense economic discovery leads several characters to question what's more important - making out rich or protecting the market. The script is sharp, the acting is great, the premise gets a little heavy at times. Plus, I was confused a lot as I don't really understand a lot of the economics they were talking about. It's kind of like watching a play.

Margin Call review

Eric Dale (Stanley Tucci) from risk management was let go. He gives a US to Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto) to finish his work. Peter discovers that because of excessive leverage, if the firm's assets in mortgage backed securities decrease by 25%, the firm will suffer a loss greater than its market capitalization. Sam Rogers (Kevin Spacey) is notified about the confidential information. Those involved, Jared Cohen (Simon Baker) and head of risk Sarah Robertson (Demi Moore), and finally CEO John Tuld (Jeremy Irons) discuss on possible solutions.

Premise was good if only the details were better in terms of the nature of the business, history, character development and the like. Soundtrack was almost non-existent but because of the castís talents, it overshadows certain aspects of th...
