The film "All the money in the world" can be safely considered the most controversial in his career Ridley Scott. Initially, the role of billionaire George. Paul Getty played the legendary Kevin spacey, who, with the help of make-up, changed up the recognition. But at some point it was revealed unflattering details about sexual harassment a side of spacey. Scott took a very major decision in this matter. Fearing that because of the bad reputation spacey can affect the movie, Scott is completely cut out all the scene of his photographed them with another actor, Academy award winning actor, Christopher Plummer.

The plot of the film is about the abduction of 16-year-old nephew of the richest man in the world — John. Paul Getty. In the center of the story is a mother - Gail, played by Michelle Williams trying to convince your rich father-in-law to pay a ransom for a grandson. But Getty senior, not despite its status as the richest man in the world, not going to pay the criminals. He does not like to spend their money, grabbing every cent preferring to personally wash and to get out, to save some of 10 dollars. While the life of her son Gail weighs on the balance, it receives his father-in-law in the assistant Advisor to the Fletcher chase, in the performance of Mark Wahlberg. Together they will do everything possible to convince John. Paul Getty in that love is more than money.

John. Gender Getty invokes mixed feelings. With one hand, it is clear that he loves his family that is a warm feeling, but on the other hand, he do with no event will help the family financially, even when the stake will stand the life of a beloved nephew. It is difficult to say whose Getty the end came out better. Christopher Plummer is a great actor with a lot of experience, but and Kevin spacey not new to the business. Perhaps spacey coped with this role better than Plummer, but unfortunately we may never to find out if Scott is not will include scenes from spacey in additional materials on the DVD. Discarding all these parts, with it is safe to say that Christopher Plummer coped with its role as a rich, selfish and greedy George. Paul Getty. But his character never did bad or good things. "I have 14 five nieces and after paying the ransom for one, I can't be sure that they are not will suffer the same fate" Said Getty in the beginning of the film. It can understand, but in the same time he is disgusting. The only significant minus its hero — too little screen time. This is due, most likely, with a very fast pace reshoots, which took place just over six weeks before the official premiere.

In recent years, had the impression that old Ridley Scott lost the scent. on the good scenario. His recent movies not shone well written characters, a study of peace and all completely full of plot holes, with no one needs biblical motifs and allegories in every scene. "The Martian" can be considered an exception, but just because he was almost a literal retelling of the novel by Andy Weir. And that's happened. Scott finally came across a good script, in which, though there are holes and not closed the final secondary storyline, it still very high quality and thoughtful. In there are a lot of causal relationships, there is almost no empty dialogues, if any, even the most insignificant detail appears in the narration, it in the future it will manifest itself. But without a good acting job, the script work is not be.

In addition to Christopher Plummer in the picture main roles were played by talented Michelle Williams and mark Wahlberg.

Michelle Williams — talented actress with his career with a Golden globe for "Best actress" and four nominations for an Oscar. Many call it one of the most popular Actresses of our time, the doubt is not worth it. The number of successful or just interesting movies in her filmography with each year is growing. In the film "All the money in the world" before the Williams had a difficult task. To play a mother trying to maintain composure, not to give up, desperately trying to release and bring home a stolen son. With what she did fine, showing the image of a strong and loving their child's mother.

Mark Wahlberg — no less a talented actor, occasionally preferring a role in low-grade comedies and action movies, but when he gets a chance to prove himself in a serious project, it not miss. Wahlberg plays the role of a pragmatic, mysterious, and plagued by internal conflicts, former CIA agent and consultant of the Getty helping character Michelle Williams in the search for her son. Wahlberg has long wanted to play the role of Ridley Scott, in as Scott often calls the film "the Third wheel" with the participation of Mark Wahlberg one of their favorite. These two were lucky to work together and it Wahlberg will be for many the chief ornament of the picture. Its character is Fletcher chase — atypical hero Wahlberg. He is not running with weapons hands, cripples to the right and to the left of the bad guys and not even nothing blows up, and quite the contrary. He used to solve all the issues using your mind, and not brute force. Quite unusual to see Wahlberg in such role, in which it looks great, but his acting talent is not lost to the background of Christopher Plummer, and quite the opposite, in some cases even surpasses it.

Despite not the best memorable soundtrack and unfinished secondary storyline, "All the money in the world" can safely be called very good, based on true events crime Thriller with elements of detective, of values of the family and that love is not even all the money in the world. This film proves that Ridley Scott is still able to take a good, intense and instructive movie.

It's amazing that the drama based on real events, "All the money in the world" is not was equipped with must marketing support. And after all, its Director was himself Ridley Scott himself, who know and love the many spectators at the world in the expense of such films as "Stranger", "Running on the blade", "Gladiator" and many others. The operator was selected pole Dariusz Wolski, another great representative of your professional shop of the Eastern Europe. We it know in such works as "the Raven", the tetralogy "pirates of the Caribbean", "the Martian" and many others. The composer has agreed to be Daniel Pemberton, familiar audience on a feed "Agents A. N. K. L.", "the Sword of king Arthur," "the Big game" and several dozens of works. In the cast included mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer (came already in the midst of filming instead of Kevin spacey, but that's another story, for the mud which is not want to touch), Romain Dyuris and Timothy Hutton. And why this movie is not received a major promotional boost? The secret, however...

And even more surprising that "All the money in the world" have been somewhat unnoticed, causing himself the story, because he was established in real very tragic events happened in 1973 with John Paul Getty III, also known as Paul Getty III. He was the grandson of Jean Paul Getty, who became one of the first dollar billionaires and at one time was considered the richest man in the world. It a grandson, time Getty III in 1973 and was kidnapped by a group of criminals who demanded a ransom of 14 million dollars. Despite its fabulous riches Jean Paul Getty refused to pay, arguing that if he will give money to the criminals, then will soon be 14 abducted grandchildren (Jean Paul Getty was a big family). This statement caused a wide public resonance, and when the newspaper "Il Messaggero" part of the severed ear and a lock of hair, confirms that sent part of the body belongs to Paul Getty III, the the world froze in shock... Strange, of course, this story is only in 2017, the year was made into a movie, but still more strange that the painting, which could lay claim to the most important awards in the world of cinema, went so fleeting.

Rather, it is associated with the quality of the work of cult Director Ridley Scott. Attentive viewers have said that in Scott, there are some differences and the force of his paintings alternates from well priced to cool taken. All have long been accustomed to what each work is Ridley Scott — this is not a work of art, and then some decline outlined. In the drama "All the money in the world" draws on note the lack of scale. This story, as shown some expression; in some scenes clearly lack the depth of drama; the message was not enough emotional, so some of the most important scenes in the picture looked some crude, as if hastily assembled that is clearly unusual for the editor, "All the money in the world" Clare Simpson, the winner of the "Oscar" for work in film "Platoon", and also gave their efforts for the creation of the film "wall street", "State of frenzy", "the Reader" and many others. As variant, these circumstances are directly dependent on producing company "TriStar Pictures", which bound the crew to chart but it's just a guess.

But there is one time, thanks to which "All the money in the world" remained on going. And this point lies entirely on the shoulders of the actors. The most amazing fact is that Christopher Plummer for the embodiment of the image of Jean Paul Getty received this recognition and was nominated on"Oscar" in the category "Best male role of the second plan". Of course, the experience, credibility and incomparable talent allowed the actor to quickly blend in shooting, history knows how unexpectedly appointed actors received unprecedented praise (recall story Kate Winslet and"the Reader"). Plummer really accurately showed the image of a cynical and rational magnate, to which you experience only one feeling — sustained hostility. It is a pity that when he said in abducted 14 grandchildren — it is the bitter truth and not every rich man is willing to part with, even for blood relatives. Should also Michelle Williams, who showed tremendous dramatic talent, as impressive-looking in the canvas of the abduction (Michel plays the mother of J. Paul Getty III). Her character always had to be strong, when at the same time wanted to cry, but she knew that if it will not save his son, none save the same joining an unequal battle with the father-in-law and his abilities. Mark Wahlberg got a few in shadow background Plummer and Williams, but were brilliant good when it hero afraid to Express all that thinks the character Plummer. And like Romain Dyuris in the image of the criminal in the nickname "Nickel".

What, on first glance, on the basis of analysis of the crew and plot "All the money in the world" was supposed to be an event in 2017-om kinogoda, but some circumstances do not allowed this to happen. Would want to the following films Ridley Scott showed that he able reminded itself, since the "Stranger", "Running on the blade" and"Gladiator". And the rhetorical question "to watch or not to watch?", the least one-off, but the film is worthy of our attention.

The film shows the life of J. Paul Getty and his family. About the billionaire who does not want to sacrifice the money for the ransom of his grandson, due to their extremely stingy character. With the other side with him even want to agree about it prudent the money as not is it on about the kidnappers.

The film is set in the early 70-ies of the 20th century. The atmosphere of those times transmitted reliably, all designed to the smallest detail. I was surprised by the number of machines used on the survey. Old models of cars of the European auto industry give the feeling of deeper immersion in that era. Study locations are made on the highest level.

No complaints is the plot of the film; he nexus sharp turns with small flashbacks. But there is one comment on the submission of final very enough action scenes with fights and shootings.

Acting is beyond praise. The roles performed by numerous nominees and winners of Oscars and other prestigious awards for acting.

The result is a very high quality picture not the best ending. I would recommend it to all lovers of detective and drama films.
