The Big Short (2015) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
The Big Short is one of the most important films of 2015, it’s a film based on true events which shows the banks and governments frauding the people into a global financial meltdown. This film is loaded to the top with a great lineup of actors, the story is top notch, and I cannot stress the importance’s of the knowledge it shares.
Now something that confuses me about the world we live in today is, “if someone breaks into your home, isn’t someone supposed to suffer the consequence?” In The Big Short (2015) is shows the banks knowingly ripping off the people causing millions to lose their homes, jobs, and much more, though the ending result is 1 person got punished!??? I do not believe that this type of outcome she be, I means an eye for an eye; right?
The Big Shorts story shows that there is documentation out there that pinpoints everyone responsible, and this film is based on true events which makes this movie perfect for many reasons. This is a great film and we highly suggest it.
Our Rating based on 1-5 stars: 5 Stars

The banks believe that Burry is a crackpot and therefore are confident in that they will win the deal. Jared Vennett with Deutschebank gets wind of what Burry is doing and, as an investor believes he too can cash in on Burry’s beliefs.
