I found it thoroughly engrossing and compelling. But, in a way you can say that this was a movie made for I. That alone is scary and tells you much of what you probably want to know.
It is a semi-fictional story about creating a very fast network (basically just a fiber line) for high-frequency trading. So, two topics dear to my heart: high-speed networking & stock trading. This is why I said it was ‘specialized’ & ‘technical‘.
Just there is a LOT of human drama. Contrary to what they claim it is NOT a thriller.
I really enjoyed it, BUT I appreciate that it will not be everyone’s cup of tea. Check out the trailer.
