What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Christopher Hooton Financial crisis becomes intelligible, entertaining.
Paul Boekkooi Vermaak op koers in Wall Street-verhaal.
Todd McCarthy Not quite on the money.
Jim Judy While the synopsis might not make it sound like a fun time at the movies, all involved turn this into a thoroughly engaging, entertaining, funny and ultimately horrifying look at what happened to our financial system with hints it could be headed there again. One of the best films of 2015.
Tomatometer The Big Short approaches a serious, complicated subject with an impressive attention to detail -- and manages to deliver a well-acted, scathingly funny indictment of its real-life villains in the bargain.
