The Big Short Review

Written by Adam McKay (“Anchorman,” “Anchorman 2”) and Charles Randolph, and directed by Mr. McKay and released in the midst of “Star Wars” advent season, the film sets itself a very tall order. It wants not only to explain the financial crisis of 2008 — following the outline of Michael Lewis’s best-selling nonfiction book— but also to make the dry, complex abstractions of high finance exciting and fun.

The Big Short makes you want all the characters behind bars by the end of the film. To sum this film up in two words, it would be this: Slapstick Tragedy.

Slapstick because it is one of the most funny films I’ve seen for a long long time! Tragedy because on how it affected the people after the 2008 Financial Crisis. All of the cast, Christian Bale, Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt. It worth seeing this film if you need something to lighten your day.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Worth Seeing: Maybe/Yes
