‘Money Monster’ Movie Review: Julia Roberts and George Clooney’s stock-market thriller is worth the investment!

 
‘Money Monster’ Movie Review: Julia Roberts and George Clooney’s stock-market thriller is worth the investment!
Star Cast: George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Jack O’Connell, Dominic West and Caitriona Balfe

Director: Jodie Foster

Producer: Lara Alameddine, George Clooney, Daniel Dubiecki and Grant Heslov

Claps: Performances, Tight Screenplay and Direction

Slaps: Predictable Story

What’s New: Nothing

Popcorn Refill: Interval

Plot: Stock-market guru Lee Gates is held as hostage on the sets of his own show ‘Money Monster’ by one of his viewers who had invested in a company following his advice and lost all of his money. Now, it’s up to Lee and his director Patty Fenn to find out the real reason behind the loss of the investors, and get Kyle the answers he is looking for.

Performances: Watch this one for George Clooney, who is terrific in his role as the suave guy who dances his way into his show, talks about numbers, has his own kind of sense of humour and at the same time manages to convince as the guy who has a lot more to him inside the expensive suit.

Julia Roberts is at her usual best and doesn’t disappoint.

Jack O’Conner is a wonderful actor but place him next to George Clooney and you can easily see the contrast between their acting chops! He makes his character a believable one.

Direction: The biggest flaw of the movie is that it has a very predictable storyline; which any movie buff could have made out watching the trailer of the flick- a thriller about a man seeking answers, Clooney helping him and how the movie might probably end- yes, it was quite a predictable one.

Then what makes this predictable flick an engaging one? It’s Judie Foster’s direction! From presenting the movie as a thriller as the secret behind the reason for the loss of the shareholders unfolds, to making the hostage situation within the sets of the show look engrossing by switching from one camera angle to another- she makes this one worth the watch for every movie lover.

Water-tight screenplay allows no space for needless details or scenes to crop into the picture. The characterizations are fine.

Combo-On-Offer: Thriller + Drama

Verdict: We give the movie CLAPS for being a well-executed flick despite a predictable storyline; along with wonderful performances by George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Jack O’Conner!
