Four denizens in the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Big Short was basically a precursor of people who anticipated the coming crash that took place in Too Big to Fail and dumbed it down for even the lesser understanding viewers by using celebrities to explain it.

There's a cast of fantastic actors from beginning to end but films like this have a hard time really reaching emotional depth because it appears to skip across the serious moments to focus on all the financial issues taking place which is already emotional in itself and tends to numb viewers to the more personal moments. Despite the lack in personal connections to the cast I still thought the movie was worth the watch.
