3 stars out of 4 -- Jodie Foster, in her fourth film as a director, goes for the burn. That she does it in the form of a vividly entertaining action thriller starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts is icing on the cake.
Jodie Foster has directed a real-time drama that’s lean, efficient and benefits from the enormous charisma of George Clooney in the starring role as a slick, smug financial pundit.
[I]t’s fun, and undoubtedly watchable. Clooney carries off the absurdity of his position with some deadpan flair, and a tiny twinkle of camp.
[A]s a solid B-movie elevated by A-list talent and pushed along by a brisk running time -- it’s only 98 minutes -- MONEY has its own rewards. -- Grade: B
Along the way, this speedy, self-assured thriller, nimbly directed by Jodie Foster from a packed script by Jamie Linden, Alan DiFiore and Jim Kouf, looses bullhorn blasts of topical outrage on matters of grave public concern.
