Or try this Bill Moyers type: "This movie nailed it perfectly of what every American felt during the robbery by the banks, and the government's commitment to protecting their corporations so they can keep getting those reelection funds and so called legal bribery via lobbyist groups."

The movie's 90-second trailer also features that Good vs. Evil pitch. The words on screen begin with "Wall Street...where greed is good ... and they make the rules." After Jim loses all his money, he says, "This is not a game to me. This is my life." A bank blows up, followed by the words "Fight the Power."

We see a SWAT team deploying and Jim aiming his gun out skyscraper windows. Then come the words "Fight the Greed."

Jim lectures Stancroft: "You cooked the books to get your bonuses. ... Why should I let you live?" Then they show a banker being shot as he clinks wine glasses with his wife on his elaborate back porch. As Jim crosses off magazine pictures of crooked financiers, and we see a man being run down by a car, the final caption arrives: "Fight for Justice."

But behind this madness is Uwe Boll, who financed his first 15 years of moviemaking by exploiting a German tax break that allowed the very rich to get a tax write-off by supporting movie production, even terrible movies like Boll's. (The break was repealed in 2005.) Boll would be better cast as a villain of his own "capitalist" fiction if he really believed any of this hate-filled, left-wing bilge.
