Richard Gere at his best as he dips, dives & squirms out of 1 mess right into another. He never loses his cool as his life threatens to collapse around him & seems to thrive on it. Well acted & a plot that keeps you on your toes. Loved the movie - especially the ending....

What a horribly disappointing ending to a otherwise brilliant, exciting and well acted film.
This movie is still worth seeing even though it leaves the audience in disbelief!

"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!!

Makes you wonder where all of the bodies are buried in real life. Great cast. Best role Richard Gere has done in a long while. Wouldn't hold breath for Oscar noms, but entertaining and worth the few hours.

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!
