Money Monster (2016) R-13

Home run after home run after home run...NOT!
We applauded(a few of us) when the movie was over and it wasn't because we were so bored, but on the contrary.  We were so engrossed with the film and we liked the film as a whole.

My mother noticed a lot of flaws, but liked the story anyway. Dad and I agreed with her when she said that the "thing" that happened towards the end needed to happen.  The person that "thing" happened to saw it coming.  He already got what he wanted.

What is that?

Watch the film to find out.  If you want spoilers, there are links here somewhere.  ;-)

There were many hostage taking stories that have been filmed already, but I have yet to check if this is the first one involving someone like Lee Gates(George Clooney).  I vaguely remember something similar, but maybe it was a figment of my imagination or I dreamed of it somehow.

OK, everyone did great, but let me mention a few:

Caitriona Balfe---not only a sight to behold, but she's a good actor as well;

Jack O'Connell's eyes are very expressive;

George Clooney is Batman...kidding.  He was good here, but I was seeing Danny Ocean(maybe because of Julia Roberts);

Emily Meade personification of Molly was perfect and reminded everyone that you shouldn't piss an angry pregnant woman who lacks sleep;

Aaron Yoo could be the male Jaclyn Jose in the future.  He is very good in under acting;

and 

Dominic West played the part of an a-hole well.  :-p  


Congratulations, everyone!
