    It's Wall Street all over again....

    This movie gives you the chills, it reminds you of the all-time classic ''Wall-Street'' with Bud Fox & Gordon Gecko. Only this time it is played by Seth Davis as Bud Fox. Boiler Room has an all-star cast with Giovanni Ribisi, Vin Diesel, Nia Long, & Ben Affleck... If you haven't seen this film, you are missing out, it is unforgettable and it is one of those keeper DVD's to have in your collection. - Chad Castorina

    Vivid, passionate, and certainly awe-inspiring!!

    This movie had such an amazing plot that it's unbelievable. It told a great story in terms of Seth Davis trying to win his father's approval after an argument at dinner one night over his casino business. Seth is motivated to get his life in order and jumps at the first chance he gets--becoming a stockbroker at some mediocre firm out on Long Island. At first it all seems too good to be true, and although Seth is excited about this kind of work and the opportunities which he knows will eventually present themselves to him, he is still wary and apt to play devil's advocate here and there. He clings to the support of a senior broker Chris Varick who eventually befriends him and makes it a point to make Seth feel welcome and encourage him. However, Seth also deals with his immediate team leader Greg Weinstein stepping on his toes every chance he gets as well as the romantic pressures of a new admired friend--the firm's secretary Abby. As time goes on, Greg becomes more envious, Chris becomes more and more encouraging of Seth, Seth makes more and more friends and more and more money, and Abby becomes more and more friendly. Let's not leave out the fact that his father is now looking at him in a different light as well. It all seems like the perfect scenario until Seth becomes a little too good at his job--and then the truth behind what makes the business run comes out. It's back to square one for Seth as his father attempts to disown him, Greg is sick and tired of him, and the FBI finally arrests him. Faced with the decision of his life, Seth eventually comes to realize that what he has worked so hard for in this shady firm is nothing compared to the respect and solidarity with which he believes he is to interact with his father and the senseless clients he has taken down and unknowingly cheated.
