Review

In this old-timers' fest, Ridley Scott (80) and Christopher Plummer (87) display their impressive workmanship. The film, about the much publicized abduction of big-money heir John Paul Getty III back in 1973, is directed matter-of-factly by Scott, albeit with a slight bias towards J. Paul Getty, who is portrayed as a simple villain despite Plummer's best efforts. All the Money in the World is an intriguing, well-documented study that works well on a superficial level, but that lacks the emotional and dramatic depth which could have made this a truly harrowing watch.
