Editorial Reviews

Christian Slater, Selma Blair, Angie Harmon and Robert Loggia star in a gripping tale of assassination, deception and corruption set in the high-stakes world of corporate investment and internationaloil trading. With America at war and in the grip of a crippling fuel crisis, Wall Street analyst Tom Grover (Slater) agrees to broker a lucrative deal between a Russian oil cartel and his investment firm's biggest client, lead by cold-blooded CEO Jared Tolson (Loggia). While juggling his growing attraction to newly-hired associate, Abby (Blair), and the advances of Anna (Harmon), a seductive businesswoman, Tom learns all is not what it seems with the deal. Digging deeper, he and Abby soon find themselves trapped in a dangerous web of treachery and murder that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Customer Reviews

This stupid course of action is never explained.
Willy D. Reviewer
Though `The Deal' deals with international politics, its story is only a standard thriller scenario.

A war with the Middle East would not cut off our supply of oil.

Here's a film that doesn't seem to have gotten a fair shake. The Deal is a darn good story about corruption, greed, oil, politics, murder, and all sorts of nasty things going on behind Wall Street doors by some of those three-piece suit types. Christian Slater is a fine actor, Selma Blair proves quite charming, and no movie has ever been hurt by the casting of Robert Loggia. The fact that such a story is all too believable in today's world serves as a hook of sorts - or maybe not. All I know is that The Deal is an effective thriller featuring some nice plot twists (although I did see some of them coming - and I'm not usually that good at picking up on things) inside a juicy story.

Here's the setting for the film: America is at war with the "Confederation of Arab states," gas is over six bucks a gallon and going nowhere but up, and the economy is seriously on the skids. Condor, led by its celebrated CEO Jared Tolson (Loggia), is working on a deal to ease America's gas shortage (not to mention fatten his pockets to overflowing) - a merger with Blackstar, a Russian company with deep oil reserves in Kazakhstan (well, supposedly). All he needs is a hot-shot Wall Street wonderboy from a prestigious company to sweet talk his board into accepting the deal - and that's where Tom Grover (Slater) comes in (after candidate #1, Grover's best friend, gets iced at the start of the movie). Grover works for an ultra-prestigious firm that is also feeling the economic crunch and could certainly use the $25 million dollars Tom will bring in just by helping Tolson sell the merger. He signs on, even though he isn't exactly an expert at evaluating geological reports, etc.

I can'wait to own this DVD. I just saw the movie in the theatre and it is riviting and so "today". Christian Slater is an executive in a financial company on Wall Street. His current assignment is to evaluate if a Russian oil company is a good investment for an American company. During his investigation maps of Russian oil fields bring up suspicions that lead to danger for him and an associate. Robert Loggia plays a pivotal role as the CEO of the American company and Slater's co-star is Selma Blair. This is worth seeing! One of the best movies I have seen in a long time!

The deal got a bad review because it points out corruption in are system.

While the movie is slow it does tell a great story.

I believe the deal shows the real side of a corrupt society. This movie is fiction but it shows what people will do for the power and money.

"It is a revoultionary act to tell the truth in a nation,society, and world full of deciet and lies."

This movie was better than I thought it would be. I bought it because Kevin Tighe was in it, and he is one of my favorite actors.
The service was very good and the movie was in a good condition. Thanks.

A distinct lack of dramatic tension afflicts this summer release thriller, but Christian Slater really isn't too bad as the corporate lawyer at the center of a corrupt oil deal at a time in the future when U.S. gas is at $6 a gallon. This came out in '05 before the $4 gallon gas of '08 almost made the movie unexpectedly prescient. Robert Loggia is also pretty good as the corporate tycoon who brokers the deal. A few people get shot. Hey, this is Hollywood. The romances have some heat, too. I'm surprised this one is so under the radar. It's worth a watch on a slow weeknight.

Illogical film. The script does not work. When Slater finally realizes what is happening, he would have gone directly to the FBI with his girlfriend. After all, we are told in the beginning of the film that the FBI are paying close attention to these oil mergers. But he acts stupid? His life and his girlfriend's life are on the line and he keeps playing the game? He doesn't seek protection and call in the professionals? This stupid course of action is never explained.

One star because I like Slater's acting talents -- even in a bad movie.

"The Deal" is a good movie-- is there something negative about Christian Slater that I'm missing? He's good, and so is the supporting cast. It is good that it takes a while to figure out what's going on-- that's suspense, right? Other movies of his have also somehow missed a wider audience-- "True Romance", for example.
I can't stand movies with low production values-- so this movie has good ones. The soundtrack is also great-- another prereq for a good movie. I can't find the soundtrack foir sale-- any help would be greatly appreciated.
