Fresh: Taut Wall Street drama takes an inside look at financial and human meltdown.-Don Groves, sbs.com.au, March 13, 2012
Fresh: [It] gives us villains that, rather than being sympathetic, are well-argued and reasonable. It gives us heroes that, whilst idealistic, make immoral choices for their own betterment. Margin Call is complex, fury-inspiring, and thoughtful.-Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, March 12, 2012
Fresh: What makes it engaging is that the Oscar nominated screenplay explores the people who make the decisions from a moral point of view. And finds them wanting.-Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile, March 11, 2012
Fresh: It's a fascinating film that reveals much about its characters and provides food for thought for all of us who live in a capitalist society. Greed may be good for the avaricious but it's sure as hell ugly when it comes at any cost-Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile, March 11, 2012
I had to watch this movie several times to get it all but found it fascinating. Great cast. Now that I am working in a bank's model risk department, it makes even more sense to me.

Maybe when I first watched, I really was not in the mood, but it took me a while to get into it. Once I did, it was good. I still have to sit and watch all the way through because that will be the best way to get the full effect of the movie. For me at least. All in all, it ok.
