Money Monster [Movie Review]

7:30 AM

As my friend has said "What is there not to love about Money Monster? There is Julia Roberts, George Clooney and Jodie Foster!"

The cast
Yup!
First and foremost, I watched it because of Julia Roberts.

Somehow, I feel close to the movie.
Money runs the world.
It cannot buy happiness, but without it, people are mostly in the state of unhappiness.

This is certainly not my best look on TV
The premise of the movie is about a disgruntled man, Kyle Budwell, who lost his inheritance due to a computer glitch in IBIS Clear Capital's stock.

He found his way into a live studio where he holds the cable financial guru, Lee Gates, hostage, in the midst of airing the latest edition of his show "Money Monster".

I am at awe with your handsomeness
The CEO of IBIS, Walt Camby was supposed to attend the morning interview but somehow, he didn't show up and was reported to be flying somewhere in Geneva. 

Kyle prior intention was to question Walt about the crash that causes him to lose his entire life-saving. As Walt was absence, he holds Lee responsible for the losses as Lee has advised the viewers to put their trust and cash in the stocks weeks earlier. Kyle put on a vest wired with bombs on Lee and demanded answers.

This certainly is not tango
Patty Fenn, the director of the show, advises Lee how to handle Kyle via his earpiece while frantically looking for some answers from the IBIS CCO, Diane Lester. Diane replied with the scripted answers which were not enough for Kyle, Lee or Patty. Unsatisfied herself, Diane started looking for a technical answer.

Calling for Pretty Woman. Hello?
Will an answer from IBIS Clear Capital satisfy everyone?
Who will benefit from the answer?

Plot: 4.4/ 5.0. Actually, I kinda know how the movie was gonna end and the plot was predictable. When it involves money, everybody is capable of being greedy.

The Act: 5.0/ 5.0. Need I say more with all the A-list actors in the movie?

Will I watch it again: Definitely.
