On the air. Out of time.

Money_Monster_DVDGeorge Clooney brings showmanship to the share market as Lee Gates, the flamboyant host of the titular TV show.

Gates is held hostage during a live broadcast by an armed and angry young man (Jack O’Connell) that’s lost a $60k inheritance through a bad investment, and holds Gates responsible for endorsing the stocks.

Money Monster begins as a tense real-time thriller, with Gates attempting to fast talk his way out of the situation with the help of his producer (Julia Roberts) via an earpiece. But then the film morphs into a blackly humorous revenge fantasy for anyone who’s lost big time on the stock market.

Watching Wall Street come tumbling down has never been so much fun, thanks to Jodie Foster’s fluid direction, brisk pacing, and energetic performances that are bang on the money.
