Revenge never is an answer

Assault on Wallstreet is a good story of the depth of the stock-market and how it influences the local citizens. This is a good story revealing how it must be for the little man and how the little man loses all while the financial elite continue to live a high quality of life on Wall-Street. The male lead character is not happy being a poor man as the rich get richer. This movie shows the emotion, anger and pain it feels like to be helpless in a seemingly rigged financial USA system. The depth that the lead male character goes through is intense, as he does not stop with one mishap (the assault and taxi hit and run situation). This movie is able to bring a human face to the financial crisis. Perhaps that is what the director intended on doing. The message came loud and clear to me: for some life deals a raw hand of cards.

Maxed Out

***SPOILERS*** The movie gets the "Death Wish" treatment when down and out and on the balls of his a** laid off security guard Jim Baxford, Dominic Purcell, goes postal when his entire world fell apart due to the criminality of the Wall Street bankers and stock brokers that he put his trust and life saving into. With both his and fellow investors money used to play the market with the financial institutions. That was supposed to keep it in safe corporate and government bonds putting it into unsecured junk bonds and worthless derivatives and home loans mortgages that went bust in the 2007-09 stock market crash. Now with his wife Rosie's, Erin Karpluk,health insurance not covering her medical expenses and facing a long and painful death she offs-or kills-herself in order to prevent her from any farther suffering.

Jim now having nothing to lose, he already lost everything, plans to do in those who screwed him out of his life savings his job his wife and home and is determined to get even by staging a kamikaze style assault on those in Wall Street who destroyed, by him believing in them, everything that he held near and dear to him. Armed to the teeth and wearing a Halloween mask Jim is more then ready to lose his life and take as many crooked brokers and greedy bankers along with him.

****SPOILERS****Wild and bloody final with Jim storming the office building that screwed him out of his life savings gunning down dozens of lawyers and brokers that he came in contact with during his non-stop rampage. Even taking time to shoot across and on the streets any person, wearing a suite and tie, he felt had anything to do with the corrupt dealing that destroyed his life and, in the case of his wife Rosie, happiness. The final showdown came in his broker Jeremy Stancroft's, John Heard, of the now bankrupt real estate growth fund's office with the police and swat teams storming the building he gave him a chance to defend himself by leaving his gun on the table thus giving Stancroft a fighting chance to use it! Only for the broker, who at first grabbed it, to find out it was empty and getting gunned down not by Jim but the police thinking that he, not Jim, was responsible for all the carnage in the building and on the street!

They'll never air this on network television.

This is a great film. It not only has well directed action and an excellent story; but it does more to explain why one out of four Americans do not have 400 dollars to spare in case of an emergency than any film I have seen in recent years. Seriously. Even better than The Big Short. I kid you not.

I wish this came out in theaters. The film is about a middle-class man and his wife who slowly lose all their income thanks to cancer and greedy Wall Street fat cats. The perfection about this film is how it builds and builds. You see the couple trying to cope while you learn more and more about the one-sided U.S. banking system. Another thing I like about this film is how it teaches us that lawyers work side-by-side and even encourage this corrupt system.

If you've ever watch a film that has anything to do with law in it, you may have noticed that for every "bad guy" lawyer there is always a "good guy" lawyer. This is literally the only film I have ever seen that shows what your average bloodsucking lawyer does to the working man. Such a brilliant and powerful scene.

Now let us talk about the action. This is far from a mindless action film. The gunplay builds into the film during the second half but isn't overwhelming or cheesy. As good as the action may be, you'll remember this film for the whole film and not just the action. This is a must watch.
