Movie Reviews

  • the script is incredibly well-structured, funny, and dramatic. A large portion of The Big Short is exposition, but it's all exciting to watch
    4.5 of 5 by Jack Giroux [/Film ]
  • McKay fails to transfer Lewis's source material into purely cinematic terms
    3 of 5 by Nigel M Smith [The Guardian ]
  • it's a supremely incensing affair as it enters its third act, with McKay even indulging a quick, bitter "What If?" catharsis, but "The Big Short" ends up an energetic, absorbing version of these events
    Review rate : B+ by Charlie Schmidlin [The Playlist ]
  • a strenuously unfunny comic drama about a handful of foresightful
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a muddled comedy-drama, though one with a commendable sense of outrage
    2.5 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • "The Big Short" joins and compares favorably to other laud-worthy films about the tanking of the economy or the insane housing market
    3.5 of 4 by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News ]
  • "The Big Short" is by far the most radical, turning a dense economics lecture into a hyper-caffeinated postmodern farce, a spinach smoothie skillfully disguised as junk food
    by Andrew Barker [Variety ]
