Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
The film doesn't turn its issues into a glorified essay, but it does use them to give the audience a vital emotional workout.

Rolling Stone

It's instructive to note what a killer actor Richard Gere can be when a movie rises to his level. Arbitrage is such a movie, a sinfully...

The Hollywood Reporter

Nothing about the plot is novel, but the film easily maintains a low simmer that picks up in the final act, as Miller has to fight to keep...

"Just One More Chance," Billie Holiday implores on the soundtrack. The nice paradox of Arbitrage is that we're interested to see whether...

In the end, Arbitrage disappoints a bit. The writing isn't as sharp, or sophisticated, as it needs be. And the cynicism exhibited by Miller...

Arbitrage is a breezy watch, with good performances that don't cut very deep and an eye for décor but little interest in what it's...

Gere does his best to give Arbitrage an agitated energy, but Jarecki's fatalism works against the film.

Arbitrage

By lball
basically entertaining, however, why did the script writer feel it necessary to have every character say the F word. It took away from any uniqueness in the characters. Was it a private joke?...

same (older) Richard Gere

By thisispenny
Movie was OK-Susan Sarandon was great ( as usual). Richard Gere played the same classy, womanizing, power hungry guy with the bare necessity of scruples as he has played before. Script reminded me a...

Arbitrage rating

By ewdooley
Very good movie. It did have a few moments of disconnect but connections were later. The plot works but seams a little uneven. Yet I would recommend seeing the movie....

Enjoyed Arbitrage

By Beantown02178
Saw Arbitrage yesterday and really enjoyed it; suspenful with a few good twists. First time in ages I've been to a movie and the theatre was almost full!...

Great Wall Street Movie

By pedsarq
Gere plays a dirty hedge fund manager who has more than dirty books to cook. He's true to the stereotypical boss in high finance with mistress and all. However, what drives the plot are his actions...

Arbitrage

Richard Gere does a great acting job in this movie. The movie is very entertaining and Gere plays a rich owner of a company but I kept thinking that the plot could have been a rich senator from...

Richard Gere and Nate Parker were fantastic

By Loreto19
Great acting by Richard Gere, Nate Parker and Susan Sarandon. Terrible performances by Laetitia Casta, Tim Roth and Graydon Carter. The movie is well paced. Great NY locations. I had a good time...

Arbitrage

By Silly Millie
Loved the movie. Must see! Acting all around is superb. As for Richard Grer he hasn't lost it at all. He's still a fox in his later years and still has the sexy walk....

ONE OF THE WORST!!!

By SAMSCUBADIVER
Had the mis-fortune of seeing this horrible excuse of a film over the week-end. It starts out slow and the only speed it picks up is the car crash! Other than that, it moves at a snails pace, very...

Will he get away with it? Is it worth it?

By JohnHortum
I was intrigued even though Gere's Robert is someone for whom one can have no sympathy. This movie takes one in as you watch a mman play several groups off each other including his own family. The...
