2.0 out of 5 stars Dull half-hearted copy of "Wall Street" Jan. 7 2004
Format:DVD
Uninspired 2nd go around of the basic plot of "Wall Street", which was one of Oliver Stone's least successful efforts. Besides a weak,unoriginal script, "Boiler Room" is marred by miscasting and a really out-of-place musical score. Hip-hop and rap music is just fine when it's part of the story as in "Eight Mile" but it's forced and inappropriate here. There is nothing to connect this type of urban music with the very suburban and city types of stockbrokers and telemarketers depicted. It's very jarring.
Giovanni Ribisi (Seth), an idiosyncratic charcter actor anyways, looks as pale as a vampire. His oddness does nothing to define his character, a young man who is drifting into criminal gambling as a business even before drifting into selling fake stocks. A lot of sentimental business transpires between him and his harsh father, a federal judge (Ron Rifkin) and this is about as entertaining as watching your family fight over dinner. It does absolutely nothing to propel the plot or even to explain why Seth -- from a priviledged upbringing -- has turned to the type of illegal business dealings you might associate more with someone from a poor background.
There is an opportunity to see Vin Diesel, pre-stardom, and actually wearing a suit. He's low key here, which is a pleasure. Instant stardom has done nothing to mature this actor's style, but he was initially an appealing and different presence. Bennifer...ooops, Ben Affleck has a small role as a huckster, the "Gordon Gecko" of the film, inspiring the troops in the small chop shop, and he does a good job of capturing the salesman's smooth patter and dead eyes. When he says he is "smiling ear to ear" (as a result of his huge success), in fact his expression is blank and souless -- perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Business Movies, Period Oct. 26 2003
Format:DVD
When I first saw Boiler Room in the theaters, I knew nothing about the fast-paced world which was enclosed behind the doors of our nation's brokerages. Even though I know a whole lot more about this aspect of business, that is not the main reason I LOVE this movie, the acting is superb (Vin Diesel is not as bad as everyone thinks he is in this movie), the plot original, and the soundtrack absolutely pulsating.
From the perspective of a student at a business college, this movie is highly entertaining, and if you ask anyone his is at all interested in business, you are likely to get the same response. Boiler Room does for me what Wall Street must have done for many in the 80's. This movie only helped my desire to become a stockbroker become more cemented.
A must-see for anyone who already owns Wall Street or Glengarry Glenross and by adding Boiler Room to those two movie, you end up with the holy trinity of business films.
The only downside to the film in Seth's relationship with his African-American secretary. The film tries too hard to examine race relations and other factors involved in dating a coworker. It should have just stuck with its examination of the lives of the young brokers, because that is what it does best!!!

Format:DVD
Seth Davis is a college drop-out with no direction. His father despises him for all of the goof-ups he's made in his life (not to mention he isn't a very happy camper when he finds out about Seth's illegal card game operation). Seth is willing to do just about anything to win back his father's approval and love. And that's when he's dragged into the business world and is recruited to a small stock brokerage firm. In very little time, he learns the ropes and is able to make sales without hesitation. The only problem is there's a good chance that the firm he's working for is much, MUCH more illegal than any small-time card operation. Seth's about to get a wake-up call from the business world, and it's not going to be a pretty sight.
Having a very big "Wall Street" and "Glengarry Glen Ross" feel and influence to it, "Boiler Room" is an exciting and chilling look into the "survival of the fittest" rule when it comes to business. It still is successful at being its own movie. There's a great story behind it all that is very believable and very convincing. You don't have to know the business lingo to understand what takes place in the film. While it's a complex story and plot, it's still clear to us exactly what's going on and what's happening.
The film has some really good acting in it. Giovanni Ribisi is perfect when it comes to playing Seth (he has a very childish and innocent look to him, which makes it easier for us to sympathize with him). Vin Diesel is pretty good in the movie as well. Nia Long is great as Seth's love interest and never misses a beat. Everybody else in the movie is great as well. The film has great direction and a solid story to back it up.
The DVD has some pretty neat features.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite bubbling... June 13 2003
By FrKurt Messick HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
I enjoyed the movie The Boiler Room. I found the storyline interesting, if a bit beyond believability (but then, when I think of my friend's lives, if they were presented on screen, most likely they would not be believable, either). The milieu of the stock trading floor is wonderfully portrayed, and it isn't until well into the film that one realises that this is not, in fact, a 'legitimate' stock brokerage, but rather, a 'chop shop' in which dummy corporations issue public stock for the purpose of building capital which can then be kept as the stock value plummets.
This is a film that fits the genre of not-quite-so-bad-guy-turns-good; the characterisations are fairly typical (mother, father, co-workers, etc.)-there is nothing really new here. There is an almost-happy ending, with the now-reformed good guy getting away just as the cavalry (in this case, the FBI) arrives to seize the bad guys. A fairly uni-dimensional film, do not go looking for deep insights or grand issues, or even great characters. But, it is a basic good story, something to give you an insight into trading floor personalities and the frenetic pace of activity that surrounds a high-powered brokerage.
I must confess I did not like the soundtrack; in fact, I found it intrusive and irritating. It was designed, I'm sure, to accentuate the trading floor/lifestyle pace and hard-hitting nature of the business world. I guess there is a reason why I'm not a stock broker; of course, the stock brokers I know prefer Brahms and Mozart.
Still, in all, I enjoyed this film. I can't say too much about, and am not quite sure why my overall opinion is one of enjoyment when there is so little explicitly redeeming about this film. I did, however, find Ben Afleck's bits in the film very interesting, particularly the job interview scene. I think I've interviewed at places like that before (except no one was telling me I would be a millionaire in three years).

4.0 out of 5 stars Boiler Room; Affleck, Diesel and Giovanni Ribisi
Giovanni Ribisi gives an excellent turn here as an entrepreneur--albeit, illegal activity--turned legitimate, or so he thought. Terrific activity between he and his father. Read more
