It is clear that the USA is more corrupt than Mexico or any banana republic. Anyone who supposes this is still a democracy is mentally ill or retarded.
But hold on, the same puppet masters are still in charge. The next crash is on schedule.
Was it criminal? Yes.
Did everyone in the office know that what they were doing was criminal? No.
When the "hero" finally breaks down and hunts the bad guys, I was all for it.
But when he's in the parking garage and then the office building shooting random people, it felt wrong... it felt like I was watching a mass shooter killing innocents.... oh, 'cause he was.
Unknown guy standing in the window - unarmed - shot.
The secretary - unarmed - shot.
The computer analyst - unarmed - shot.
Grenades on the open office room - random unarmed people - blown up.
And it's not just one or two, there's more than 30 bodies of unarmed office people BEFORE he gets to the big bad guy.
Was the crime committed by the big bad guys a capital felony? Maybe... maybe not. It's Hollywood. They picked profit over people.
But all of the other people in the office.... even if implicated in the criminal activities... would be accessories at best. That is seldom, if ever, a capital offense. Our hero made them all pay with their lives for just working in the building with the bad guy. I guess it's guilty by association.
Too many mass shooters use their personal pain to rain destruction on unknowing victims in real life for this movie to leave me with a good feeling that justice was served.
desolation and a desire for justice at any cost. Purcell was perfect as a man driven to cold-blooded insanity.
The whole cast did well - great revenge flick. After all this time I wonder, why no sequel? Maybe just a little Too good?
Jim (Dominic Purcell) works for a security company as a amored car officer. His wife is ill but recovering. Jim's investments begin to fail and medical bills begin to pile up. Eventually, financial problems overwhelm Jim and the malfeasance he perceives on Wall Street anger him into a murderous rage.
Boll's film is the end product of a zietgiest that is prevalent in the U.S.: the game is rigged against the little guy and the elites control everything. No matter how much one works, the little guy can't win. The vast majority of people won't walk down the path Jim takes in this film, but there's likely to be many who at least sympathize with him.
A good film. Boll has nailed it as he did with Rampage.

It's about a hard working security guard who is looking after his sick wife who finds out that their medical insurance has run out and can therfore no longer afford to pay for treatment so decides to dip into his savings which he's put on the stock market calls his broker to only find out the market has crashed and has lost everything and to top it of is being told he owes 60.000. The wife realises the burden her illness has become on him so kills herself, he looses his job and is about to become homeless and annoyed that hardworking people who have lost their life savings on wall street are being left to struggle while the traders are still living it large decide to take vengeance.
Der Film bedient keine Genreklischees. Abgesehen vom Cover ist er auch nicht in irgend einer Richtung "gestylt". Er erzählt einfach eine Geschichte. Für mich ist das Autorenkino im besten Wortsinn. "Bahnwärter Thiel" trifft "Michael Kohlhaas", in die heutige Zeit versetzt und im Stile einer altgriechischen Tragödie abgearbeitet. Kein Wunder, zumal der Drehbuchautor sowohl über eine literaturwissenschaftliche als auch wirtschaftswissenschaftliche akademische Ausbildung verfügt. Der Film ist weder moralisch noch "schön"; er ist Kunst! Nach vielen Jahrzehnten, wenn man die vielen Blockbuster bestenfalls nur noch belächeln wird, wird man diesen Film als Referenz des Sittenbilds unserer gegenwärtigen Situation heranziehen.
