Consensus: Arbitrage is both a tense thriller and a penetrating character study, elevated by the strength of a typically assured performance from Richard Gere.

So slyly and craftily entertaining even though it probably doesn't bear close scrutiny, I didn't much care. It wasn't epic. It didn't ask me to ponder the meaning of life. And it's good.

In many ways, Arbitrage is the awards contender it may have first appeared to be. It is deep and meaningful and one of the most intelligent movies of the year.

Arbitrage is a slick, intelligent psychological thriller that works to connect public and private immorality.

Arbitrage is an ultimately timid work that has its heart half in the world it purports to disparage.

Really, it could use some nip/tuck on the screenplay, but the players are decent and the movie looks opulent enough.

An old-fashioned treat.

Nicholas Bell

Arbitrage is a mechanically sound and consistently entertaining film, with some noteworthy performances. However, after the film concludes, it's hard to find anything to be enthusiastic about it.

"Arbitrage" is a 1990s-style melodrama set in the world of high finance. Despite its old-fashioned style, it's quite effective. Richard Gere does… More
