When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.

    Excellent writing, acting and soundtrack. This film does a fabulous job of explaining the background to the World financial crisis.

    This is one of the best movies in the last few years. Well written, great cast, and a real story.
  • Not Short Enough

    A long film, very dull and quite tedious really. Lots of back story that doesn’t really add benefit to the movie. Couldn’t recommend
  • Great movie!!!

    Disappointed because I bought it and it was then on Netflix a week later however, this is a great film giving background to what really happened (artistic license aside) and I certainly don't regret buying it. It's an informative film about a relatively boring subject (to most people) so not a fair comparison to wolf of Wall Street. I really like the way they break character to explain the financial jargon. Great cast and great acting and I didn't even realise it was Brad Pitt till right at the end. Also, quite a good companion film to Margin Call.
  • Entertaining & Educational - Excellent Film!
