Movie Review: Boiler Room
One of my Top 10 favorite movies of all time, Boiler Room.
It’s about a kid from New York who wants to try and make it big in life, so he decides to become a stockbroker, but ends up working with a low-end firm that isn’t everything they claim to be. He becomes damn good at his job, and while everything starts becoming gravy, he begins unraveling a mystery he never intended to learn about in the first place.
The movie pulls you in, as you root for this kid to learn the ropes, and become great at the craft of hustling people. There’s a ton of great scenes in this movie, with motivational speeches, and people selling things to the impossible. It’s never sluggish or slow, and moves along at a hell of a pace. Another interesting aspect to it is that while it takes place in a white-collar world, it has a complete hip-hop soundtrack, which blends well and gives the film a different vibe than you’d expect.
Go. Watch this bad bitch. Now.
