Want truth? Watch this. Want entertainment only? Do not watch.7/10
There is a lot of truth in this movie. I do not care if you are Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or other, if you listen closely the rants and the facts in the background of the movie should ring true. We are all slaves to the system and also the "old money" described in one of the later rants. However, remember that many middle or even high level employees and owners of Wall Street have no idea they work for a corrupt system.

I believe that the acting and atmosphere were solid, especially for a low budget movie. However, the movie was a bit romanticized and unrealistic.

I would recommend this movie to someone who is yearning for a better understanding of politics, money in general, and who wants to also be mildly entertained. I would not recommend this movie to anyone who watches for the sole purpose of being entertained, it cannot compete with other movies in terms of pure entertainment value.
Good movie, watch it.8/10
Not what i expected, in a good way. This is not just a "run and gun" movie. I find this movie to be comparable to "Falling Down" from 1993, or Law "Abiding Citizen" 2009. Only a bit better! I would give both those movies 7, i give this 8.

The reason for this is the build up, or rather the hard hitting decline. It is not only hard hitting, but it is highly relevant and indeed, highly believable. The acting is good, Erin Karpluk does an excellent role, and really gave me a "puch in the heart". Eric Roberts does the slick lawyer very well indeed. Dominic Purcell does a good job, but i have a bit of an issue there. There is a bit to much "stoneface" going on. If this is due to the actor or the director is probably a discussion for the learned of such things. But he carries the movie well.

Im looking at Uwe Bolls movie list and i have seen six or seven of his over 30 movies, so i am no expert. If you look the Bloodrayne series it is quit entertaining, but they don't mean anything, if you catch my drift. I find Assault on Wallstreet to be quite a different animal. Yes there is shooting, executions and blood. But this time the "scenery" is different, it is relevant.

Assault on wallstreet surprised me and therefor i might be overly entusiastic by giving an 8, but i do recommend this movie. Yes you might "have seen it before".. Well let me tell you, i have seen Superman, Spiderman, Avenge me this and Avenge me that so many times that the my eyeballs starts to bleed by just accidentally seeing the commercials for the bloody things.. OK, the new Spiderman was better than the last one, but thats besides the point! (cough cough)

I say give it a go :)

Appreciate a yes or no for helpfullness, so i know if there is a reason for me to writing these comments.
Bulletproof9/10
It is a great movie! It will definitely make to the top 5 movies of 2013. The cast is flawless, the production was solid and the story (98min only) will make you beg for extra precious minutes (director's cut maybe?). Somehow it reminded me of Heat... I know the story is different but the guns are the same! It does picture life in difficult times. It doesn't solve the financial crisis, nor the struggle to provide for the bellowed ones, nor health insurance problems... but it makes you think what one could really do/accomplish when everything that matters fades away. The perfect time to watch it? A rainy Saturday afternoon. You will not be disappointed.! P.s: don't watch this movie on a Sunday, tho... specially if you plan to meet your broker Monday morning.
Pigs are flying....Uwe Boll has made a good film! --^--6.8/10--^--7/10
Well everyone, it seems as though we should all remove a dagger from the heart of Uwe for now at least. Assault on Wall Street comes forth with none of the all too familiar flaws that most movie fans are accustomed to with his work. Not only does this come across with good cinematography, superb editing & a very effective score, but it delivers many good acting performances by a cast made up mostly by actors who are normally not so effective.

Dominic Purcell(Prison Break) plays Jim, an armored car guard and loving husband to his wife Rosie, who happens to become seriously ill. This event starts a chain reaction of bad events in Jim's life, first his health insurance gets capped, days later he finds out his lifetime investments are now gone due to crooked business practices. Now, unable to pay for the proper medical treatment for Rosie he embarks on a desperate mission to find a solution, only to be left alone with nothing but revenge on his mind.

This is such a common story here in the US which makes the film that much more real to the audience. You'd be hard pressed to find a person that hasn't either had a family member who has lost their retirement or known someone who hasn't gotten screwed in some way by an unscrupulous investment company between 9/11 to date. This factor made the plot hit home in a very believable manner. Match that with good pacing and you have yourself a pretty entertaining film to watch. --^--6.8/10--^--
Uwe Boll! you did it this time.6/10
Uwe Boll is known as one of the worst directors ever known to be in the film industry for making movies for big budgets and making absolutely nothing back from them.hes hated by all the directors in Hollywood and is mocked by people all over the world.his last few movies have been universally panned by critics all of them adapted from popular video games.after owners of well known game metal gear solid refused to sell the rights to Uwe Boll because his history as a director.

i think he finally woke up and smelled the smoke because his latest film Assault on wall street is actually good.The film stars Dominic Purcell and Erin Karpluk .the film starts as Jim a security guard for an armored truck who is struggling to pay for his ill wife who is recovering from cancer and Jim must find ways to pay for his wife's treatment after his disastrous investment his stockbroker advised him to make.he soon looses everything he has and decides to take extreme measures to get revenge on the rich and greedy people who got him into the situation hes in.although the film starts off slow it somehow manages to keep you interested and you sympathize with Jim and actually start to root for him even though you know what hes doing is wrong.it picks up near the end and to be honest it impressed me even though Uwe Boll has gone really dark for this one.with a A+ performance by Dominic Purcell and Erin Karpluk

this is a film Uwe Boll can actually be proud of and not have to worry about being universally panned.many people will watch this movie and give it a bad review just because of Uwe Boll past and because they quite frankly don't like him or his methods but thats not what film is about.the film is a huge improvement over his previous films and all i can say is Uwe Boll keep it up stay away from the video game adapt ions and concentrate on your own work.now I'm not saying this film is amazing but it is a damn good film.6.5/10
