The cinematography was amazing and the quality of the interviews he got were impressive. A masterful job of explaining how the crisis happened and how the rich made off as bandits both before and after the crisis.

This film does a great job of explaining the derivatives that were used during the financial crisis. For those that are not aware of what lead to the crisis, it provides details on what derivatives were traded between what companies. It will frustrate you and make you angry when you see how greedy the players were, but still worth a look.

The explanations move a little quickly at times, but overall, this is a very important movie that everyone should see. It really makes you shake your head at how we allow corruption to run rampant among the rich and powerful.

This is the type of movie you will not see on t. v. why , no special effects, just the truth. Tell your freinds, harsh, real, to the point, in your (lying face) weaselling, caught in the act, and still lying. Welcome to America, no morals, just straight GREAD.

DOCUMENTARY. By the end of the movie I was sick to my stomach with all of it. Horror movie at its best. Good wake up call. It is sad to see how little we know sometimes and how easy we can be kept into ignorance by the same people [who] are chosen for their expertise and transparence!!!

MARVELLOUS! MUST SEE MATT DAMON has become one of the best actors of this generation. With an Oscar, two recent nominations and malmost every single film a hit... he's hit the jackpot big. Couldn't happen to a greater guy.

It brought a lot of thinking to all of us. From personal pov, I work in retail banking industry, always desired more power and money, top US MBA school on the to-do list... but stories like this has constantly remind me 'had people with $ n power lost their morals' , what if I will get more greedy like everyone else... For the whole globalizing society, $ is the driven key in the crowd. It is sad but back 2000 years ago, it's the same too. Before it was emperors and land masters, now it's CEOs and traders. Can we please have the media emphasize less on the 'fancy cars, luxury life' but more on humanity...

If anyone honestly thinks that the canadian banks are any less the angels... re-think.. 75 billion paid to the banks under our current Government to buy back dead-assets. Not as bad as in coruptus American but nontheless. An eye-opening documentary which reveals that crime does pay but only for the Globalists, not you and I.

This is an excellent documentary! This movie shows how the 2008 financial meltdown was avoidable and how the failure of the US government regulation and reckless behaviour by Wall Street banks led the entire world into economic crisis. Millions of people lost their jobs, their houses, their life time savings. The Bush administration, the Federal Reserve chairmen at the time, the Treasury Secretary and all the Wall Street economic advisors contributed to conditions that led to excessive risk-takings. These economic advisors and bankers walked away with billions of dollars in their own pockets while the middle class and the poor are still suffering right now. It's infuriating! They created one of the greatest tragedy of all times. What made me even more furious is that their most famous universities teach that it was/is perfectly acceptable to act like this. The Americans will go to great lengths to promote an Hayek & Friedman economy! How greedy of them! This movie is a must see. Everyone should go see it and they should ask for legal actions to be taken. What happened was unacceptable! There should be some consequences to their wrong doing! These financial advisors and bankers should be held accountable! Bravo to Matt Daman for being the narrator of this movie! It’s extremely well done!

A thank you to the filmmakers and their courage! It's a very strange situation with the greed of humans out of any proportion: In how many private jets can a person put itself at a time? Under how many roofs of how many beautiful homes can a person put itself at a time? With how many prostitutes can a man actually be at a time? How much on luxury food and how many glasses of wine can a person take in? (more than 1 glass/day is dangerous to the health of a man's body, more than 1/2 glass/day for the woman's body) At the final end, the hole what needs to be digged to put the corpse of a rich person doesn't need to be bigger than for another person's body, neither are many more flames necessary to burn it.

It's unlikely that anyone would argue against the proposition that Richard Fulds (Lehman Bros.)and his ilk are psychopaths who bleed the system. The question is how to legally provide for remedies to this situation if there is no political will to introduce regulatory measures. If only people would band together to loudly call for reform in the financial sector then perhaps governments might listen-although this is a daunting goal considering the power exercised by the Wall Street Bankers.

Bravo! For a documentary to sustain interest for the entire 90 or so minutes is a difficult task. Inside Job brilliantly succeeds. The film explains the complex financial girations that led to the greatest worldwide economic collapse since the Depression. Matt Damon was a great pick to narrate the film. It seems top academics were anxious to rub shoulders with a Hollywood Celebrity. They were expecting a light weight patronizing interview in the style of Larry King. Those who participated were in for the shock of their lives. If you are even remotely considering this film, do not miss it. You will rave about the film as I am doing now.

The same thieves that destroyed the economy are now advising Obama. This is wonderful fantastic news! And the word of the day is Greed followed by HYPERINFLATION. Be informed that the measures implemented by Obama are toothless. Nothing has changed or will change until the bottom falls out. Move over Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain.

Great movie. We the 90% are working longer, harder making less than what we made per dollar sense 10+ years ago, where's the relief package for all who lost everything and to the it off the top 1% paid less taxes than the average with bonuses. Where's the other 9% in this? Very informative with the narrator.

Very powerful film very distressing/depressing to see how these dangerous sociopaths can be allowed to carry on preying on good hard working people, with no one in any position of power or leadership who cares enough to do anything. There are many among us who feel that life is but a joke. Maybe it is time to go back to the good old frontier type of justice. The old tar and feathering to start with, that at least made the real people feel better.

This movie should be mandatory viewing for anyone who draws breath. Gives clarity to the poorly understood machinations of the American financial system. I was left feeling immense sadness for the average American who so fervently believes (s)he lives in a democracy when, in fact, they live in an oligarchy controlled by Wall street and the oil barons. How does one control such rampant avarice and greed before it consumes the world?

Shocking. The film is a warning that the American financial services sector is still cheating and needs to be regulated. That two leading universities actively participate and support the top American bankers greed foreshadows a grim future for the average American nation. A very scary movie, one you can not afford to miss.

Great movie. It definitely shows the peril of deregulation in the banking industry and the stranglehold that the banking industry in the US has on the US gov't. Not as fast paced and agressive as a Michael Moore doc but persuasive none the less. A must see.

I manage international investments and to me and some persons in my field, it was so obvious that a crash was coming big. Thank god I took at that time high risk and saved my investors. US control over world economy is over, world governments or investors will never trust US administrations any more. The advantage of this film over Michael Moore's is that it is connecting Obama administration directly to the teem who orchestrated the hall scam, as Nahum Chomsky described Obama as the representative of Wall Street Administration - Goldman Sachs Branch.

Pretty shocking…This are the people who are running/ruining our countries. It captured some very embarrassing answers and moments when you knew that they were lying through their teeth. Conversely, they were answering in such incompetent manner, void of any brain power, that you were left to believe that these people are the most uneducated, basic idiots. How did they acquire the credentials to wield such financial powers is beyond me. Their ethics were also transparently crooked that it makes one question our legal system. They should all join Lord Black in jail and write the history of the greedy and crooked. The academics also turned my stomach and I would not be surprised that they provided them with the theory for their wicked acts. A must see.

AT LAST - albeit about twenty years too late - someone has called academic economics what it is - a cowardly, propagandizing, profiteering LIE, parasitic on the ravening jackals who (still) run the world economy. Unfortunately, this film constitutes abit of choral preaching - an informal poll taken after the film revealed not a single "conservative" in attendance, let alone any "tea partiers". God save us all. For krist sake people, go see this film!!!

Wow! Hard to believe a documentary could be so entertaining. Explains the global financial meltdown and the ongoing shenanigans in the US financial system. Introduces you to the key players; and just when you think things couldn't get worse, it shows you that the same people are still running things under the Obama administration. More in the style of 60 minutes than Michael Moore. Jaw-dropping!

Builds its case in an entertaining and informative way. Matt Damon's narrative is very effective. Final punch of the ending post obama is very good. You may remember bits and pieces of the story but this documentary puts it all together in a way that is easy to understand. The opening with iceland is tied to what happened globally very nicely. At almost two hours it dragged very little, which is impressive. Great documentary film.
