The Boiler Room dvd has photo images of Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi, and Nia Long on the front of the dvd cover. With Nicky Katt also listed to be in the movie. I admit that Boiler Room is another film that I heard about via an e-mail connected to the office of Jordan Belfort. Due to obvious and understandable legal reasons, it is mentioned during the play of the dvd that Boiler Room is fiction. This is because one can easily see the obvious parallels between Wolf of Wall Street and Boiler Room The character of Seth Davis (Ribisi) just wants to make his father proud when it comes to eking out a living for himself. Davis sees opportunity when he gets hired at a stock brokerage firm, part of the appeal being is that he is a newcomer to working in the field. Seth Davis thrives in his job and even falls in love with a fellow coworker named Abbia (Nia Long). There are obvious references to the Glengarry Ross movie in Boiler room with referencing both the movie and the Always Be Closing phrase. There is even a cultural nod to the Wall Street movie (the character of Seth Davis is seen watching the Wall Street movie with his coworkers). I just seen his name on the back of the dvd cover, yet I admit that I did not know that Ben Affleck was in the Boiler Room film until I saw him in scenes involved with doing the hiring at the stock brokerage firm. Anyhow, things seem to be going along well for Davis until he convinces a purchasing manager at a Gourmet Foods Company to be a client. To exacerbate the situation, the gourmet foods purchasing manager is not just responsible for himself, but he is shown to be both a father and husband who is trying to place a large down payment on a home with his wife (therefore the stakes are even higher than if it was just him and his wife).Read more ›

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.

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!!!

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.
