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.

    The storyline could have flowed better. I lived through this turmoil and lost money on bank stocks I owned. This greed will happen again.

    History most don't know well, but most suffered the results of the capitalist crisis. One guy understood the oncoming disaster and beat it big, the Big Short.

    This movie had a lot of sub parts and b/c I'm self diagnosed A.D.D., I had to watch this a couple of times in order to connect dots & justify my anger over big banks & republican politics. Jeesh ! Very well casted. Very well acted. Very well written. Scary it is based on multiple TRUE stories & experiences.
  • Really enjoyed this film

    By Orion3903
    Its frustrating to watch however. I have read that many economists equate what the banks were doing back before the crash to a world wide ponzi scheme... and it doesn't look like we have fixed anyhing. People will always resort to the easy buck, easy scam... I just hope the next crash isn't as drastic.

    Truly great movie
  • Love the Theory

    By baquiano
    This is a movie that doesn’t shy away from putting out all the theory that is needed. It’s like a documentary with A-list actors.
