"Arbitrage" is the simultaneous buying and selling of a security at two different prices in two different markets, resulting in profits without risk." It is NOT illegal and this film does NOT address "arbitrage"...
Predictably, the successful capitalist is untoward, manipulative, earning his ill-gotten wealth, not by skill and ingenuity but subterfuge, fraud. Devastatingly handsome Richard Gere is "Robert Miller" the "master of the universe" , the "rainmaker", the hedge-fund king whose "Midas touch" is in jeopardy of turning bronze; Gere imbues the character with enough smarmy charm and sagacity to captivate the viewer. Reminiscent of "Bonfire of the Vanities" an adulterous affair could result in his undoing; nevertheless a streak of the humane saves "Robert" from drowning in moral turpitude...
TWO & 1/2 STARS!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was suspenseful and kept me in my seat. It had been a very long time since I had been to the movies and I was so glad this movie brought me back. I'd give this movie 5 stars!

It was a so-so movie. Richard Gere was good, as was Susan Sarandon. Plot was a tad weak, and the ending felt rushed and left a lot unanswered.
If you haven't seen this yet at cinemas, wait until it comes out at Redbox.

It was a good flick to watch but a little heavy handed at points. There comes a point where you have to say - yes I know that the ultra rich on wall street operate by different rules already. Fortunately the performances are good - esp Ms. Sarandon's performance within a performance. She rarely dissappoints.

Richard Gere is great as is the entire cast. It is a bit tough to understand at the start but as it goes along it pulls you in.
