5.0 out of 5 stars Brief Seller Feedback & Product Review March 18 2014
By Doug
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Amazon.ca quickly provided a brand new copy of this DVD / Blu-ray set (HBO's Too Big to Fail), which arrived in perfect condition.

The movie is as good as the outstanding book on which it is based, and, perhaps in a few instances, even better, in making arcane, complex issues understandable. HBO is to be heartily congratulated for turning out this excellent film, with some top notch actors who turn in terrific performances. It's a shame that it probably won't get broad or deep TV exposure, since it lacks high speed car chases, steamy sex scenes, and over the top gun battles. Also, it requires sustained, careful attention to the dialogue, in order to understand and get the most out of the film. And yet, the movie should be among the biggest grossing, most popular "disaster blockbuster" movies of all times, because it tells the true story of how we actually came within a hair's breadth in October 2008 of a global financial and economic meltdown that would have initiated a new Great Depression, one far worse, and decades longer, than the original in the 1930s, a genuinely, apocalyptic catastrophe of biblical dimensions. And it was an entirely man-made crisis, made by many of the persons depicted in this film, who rallied in the clinch to pull us back from the brink with only hours to spare. Ideally, screening this picture (and reading the book) would educate, anger and galvanize the public into demanding that their political and economic leaders take action to ensure that we never run such a dire risk of disaster and destruction again.

In short, Too Big to Fail is a high quality, serious movie, but it's also as thrilling and scary as the trashy disaster entertainment classics, like The Poseidon Adventure, and much better acted and better made. Well worth seeing, but you'll probably have to watch it on a DVD or Blu-ray disc, rather than see it on commercial TV channels.

This DVD debunks and explains some of the lies and intricacies of deceit that are occurring right under our nose. An excellent production and a must-have for any activist.

If Washington paid any attention to this movie, there would be a few in jail. The whole 2008 crisis was a sad time for investors while the crooks got away with millions. Only In America.
