Assault on Wall Street  

Summary:   Jim is an average New Yorker living a peaceful life with a well paying job and a loving family.  When the economy crashes, Jim suddenly loses everything. Filled with anger and rage, Jim snaps and goes to extreme lengths to seek revenge for the life taken from him.

A security guard for an armored truck, Jim (Dominic Purcell) is a blue-collar New Yorker who works hard to earn a living. His wages support himself and his wife Rosie (Erin Karpluk), who is on the upswing recovering from a near-fatal illness. Yet things start to fall apart after Rosie's health insurance stops covering her treatment and Jim's life savings are lost via a disastrous investment his stockbroker had advised him to make. As a row of professional and personal dominoes falls, Jim is confronted by the realization that, after being abused and exploited by financial institutions for far too long, he has only one choice: to strike back. From the mind of notorious German writer/director Uwe Boll (House of the Dead), ASSAULT ON WALL STREET is excoriating look at the American financial system that is sure to stir up plenty of Occupy-esque sentiment.

You all need to see the whole movie. It is deep. All jokes aside. Level heads need to get together and find a way to cool things off. This movie is a warning to us all.

We must come together and pray that the devil does not take over the minds of the people that do not know the Lord. We must find middle ground. We must let calm sober minds take over.  We must compromise.  We can compromise. We must pray for peace. Wall Street has to meet us at the negotiation table. Tensions are running at all time highs.

I saw the movie.  It is realistic and very disturbing. 

We need to keep it together.

Well, this is quite interesting. I agree with Cedric on all of his comments. Homework, homework, homework is the key to avoiding trouble. But people (financial professionals included) very, very rarely do their homework, or not nearly enough homework.

In this movie after the sauce hit the fan, and the client started asking all the questions he should have asked in the beginning, the broker revealed that he did not actually do the homework himself. He got the information from the sales manager that said it was a “good deal”.

I wonder did the sales manager actually do the homework.  Who in the chain of command actually took a good look at the deal? Whoever did look at the deal, I wonder if they were even smart enough to know if the deal was good or bad?  

To top it off, the customer did not mention anything about what he read in the material, he only talked about what the broker told him. So now we know the customer did no homework himself. We also know the broker did not do any homework by his own admission. The sales manager maybe or maybe not did some last minute homework before they gave the deal to the brokers to push to the customer.

So there you have it. That is the problem. No one has the energy to do the homework when it is time. But look what happens when things go bad. Very sad situations can quickly develop.

The more eyes on the wheel the better. In this 2008 scenario the bottom line is no one was really paying attention. At least not enough people were paying attention. 

But look at all the madness and negative energy that gets exerted when things do go bad.

Everyone in this scenario wished they took more time and care in how they handled the situations when it was happening. The brokers, lawyers, sales managers, and above all the customer paid a dear price that did not have to be paid. We as professionals need to take a little more time care and attention.

Yet it is odd to see towards the end of the movie the main character had actually read and understood some things. That is very sad, because that means if he took time in the beginning to understand what he was really getting into he may have avoided the bad mortgage and investment deal all together.

If he was smart enough to figure out at the end what was happening, why could he have not read, studied, and ask questions in the beginning before the trouble?

He was obviously smart enough. When you actually read your prospectus it explains all the things that can go wrong. Problem is many people very rarely read this very important document.

The bad mortgage deal. The same applies. When it says “adjustable” you need be able to handle the worse case scenario payment. You need to know what the worse case scenario can be. You have to read and ask questions. Never let anyone push you to hurry up and sign some papers or write a check. Again, who reads the mortgage or the note and ask questions?

But those same people end up spending hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars paying for the fact they did not use an ounce of prevention, because they were lazy and did not want to read about 40 pages or so at the closing table. Perhaps then they would know be afraid and cautious and seriously ask themselves and the guy across the table what is really going on.

When we were in school as children there were penalties for not doing our homework. In real adult life this rule applies more so. 

It makes no sense to be tough enough to be a vigilante but not tough enough to overcome your laziness and do the homework when it is time.

Ask the tough questions when it is time. Stand up for your self when it is time. And that time is before the check is written and the papers are signed.

We must always do our Due Diligence when it comes to investing. The same amount of rage and anger he had after losing his money is the same amount of energy we should put into pressuring our advisor with the hard question before investing.

Its absolutely a must to read the PROSPECTUS and ask any and all the question you and your friends , mentors , parents and competitors deem necessary.

Pressure your advisor! Put him in a corner! Take your time! Research and gather all the necessary information prior to investing.

Please understand once the money is move over 9 times out of 10 its gone.

My father always explain its easer to stay out than it is to get out of a situation.

Investing is a risk. Don't seek revenge if you did not ask what needed to be ask , the way it needed to be ask, when it needed to ask!!!!

Don't cry for mercy when you jump at the thought of huge returns in a short period of time!!
