REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..uses every cinematic trick in the book, but ultimately succeeds because we know that the danger was real..”
by Michael Kinsley [NY Times]
2 of 4

“..ultimately comes off as a talky, surprisingly dull drama that all-too-often feels a reenactment on a financial news network..”
by David Nusair [Reel Film Reviews]
Review rate : C

“..the majority of the performances are robotic, spewing facts and figures without making the personalities stick. "Too Big to Fail" is cold to the touch..”
by Brian Orndorf [BrianOrndorf.com]
0.5 of 4

“..clogged with exposition and explanation, paradoxically belittling a story that's too big for any single telling..”
by Jaime N. Christley [Slant Magazine]
“..a little like a disaster movie, where the disaster is still rumbling on at the movie's end, just not as awfully as it might have, and a little like a samurai movie, where the soldiers carry cellphones instead of swords, minus the action..”
by Robert Lloyd [LA Times]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
