BY Bayly lister

'all the money in the world' was very dramatic. the plot was good, but heaps of the movie could have been cut. it was not very exciting. and the fact that it was based on the true life of J Paul Getty lll, i didn't expect it to be very exciting anyway.

The Press Reviews

  • Two men in their 80s power the month's most pulse-pounding thriller. Who could have seen that coming? Full Review

  • At the 11th-hour, Ridley Scott worked magic to replace scandal-plagued Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer, who plays John Paul Getty with "magisterial skill" in this fact-based kidnap thriller. Full Review

  • Until the breathless climactic scene, which it effectively conjures from whole cloth, the film feels a little too safe, a reminder of such by-the-numbers Scott exercises as "Body of Lies" and "Matchstick Men." Full Review

  • The film reminds us that, onscreen and off, bumps along the road of life can often be surmounted by money carefully applied, but a tenacious mother (or director) is what ultimately makes the difference. Full Review

  • It's a true-life yarn loaded with extremes, of wealth, personal eccentricities, grief, tension, daring, criminal means to political ends, maternal drive and luck, both bad and good. Full Review

  • But with the help of Plummer's tremendous villain-autocrat performance, Ridley Scott gives us a very entertaining parable about money and what it can't buy. Full Review

  • Scott has made simply a competent thriller that dazzles only in the ingeniousness of its lightning-quick and proficient re-staging.... The annihilating indifference of the 1 percent will just have to wait until next year. Full Review

  • Plummer’s performance makes Getty a memorable, terrible tycoon, and bringing him in for the redo is a gamble that paid off. But the film is risk-averse and unremarkable. Full Review

  • It won't be long before the drama, attention-to-detail and sheer storytelling nous that characterises the rest of All the Money in the World sweeps any doubts far away. Full Review
