CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 

 
PROS –
1) A generic heist movie constitutes of few common acts: recruitment, planning, heist, snafu, & escape. In this movie, the heist part was the easiest while the escape part took an unexpected turn.
2) One hell of an adventure covering Andes Mountains, cocaine farm field, Colombian jungle, treacherous mountains across South America.

 
CONS –
N/A

PROS –
1) Silence before the storm of the 2008 Financial Crisis. A companion movie to The Big Short (2015).

4) Wolves by Phosphorescent

 

CONS –
1) Not for the audiences who don’t understand financial jargons.

John Tuld: Let me tell you something, Mr. Sullivan. Do you care to know why I’m in this chair with you all? I mean, why I earn the big bucks.
Peter Sullivan: Yes.
John Tuld: I’m here for one reason and one reason alone. I’m here to guess what the music might do a week, a month, a year from now. That’s it. Nothing more. And standing here tonight, I’m afraid that I don’t hear – a – thing. Just… silence.
