Money Monster (Blu-ray release 2016-9-6) is a unique drama about a guy who takes the host and the crew of a financial TV show hostage, after suffering heavy losses from following the host’s stock recommendation.  There are nice ideas to be found from this drama, with certain events taking a turn different from what the audience normally expects.  On this basis, I found the movie to be quite interesting.  However, considering its message about Wall Street, there are better movies before that depicted the dark side of Wall Street better.  The ending is a little unusual with respect to who is hurt and who is not hurt, but it actually makes perfect sense for delivering its message.
