You take over a company and sell off the assets, loan yourself money, pay yourself first, then raid the retirement fund,and declare bankruptcy and have the government bail out the affected, and they call you a great businessperson  No jail time.

You rob a bank, they call you a criminal and throw you in prison.

I'd really rather see a movie where a team of hackers, grifters, thieves and whatnot simply arranged for every unethical banker and CEO responsible for the recent economic malfeasance to get caught in such an overt, public, easily-understood way that not even their purchased politicians could save them. All would wind up in horrible disgrace, get sent to PMITA prison for other sins or wind up asking for long sentences just so they aren't killed by the organized criminals they were already in bed with after the team reveals they were sleazy even to their own associates.

Why kill them when you could spit-roast them for years and years? Killing them creates martyrs. Better to destroy them so utterly that their friends would have to bend down to spit on them, and thus send a message that to betray the trust of the people is to court oblivion.

You could technically save money and just greenlight a run of 'Leverage' movies where Parker, Eliot and Hardison run the team to accomplish this. I bet Jeri Ryan would help produce them if the writers asked, and if they made the wafer-thin disguises of the bad guys in question just a little bit more transparent, then Anonymous would grow too numerous to prosecute and there would simply be too many people responsible for the actual downfalls in question for civil suits to really be productive. It isn't libel when it's true, and it isn't defamation to point out that somebody actually committed a crime.

I just love how people scream that it was their own fault, and that the money people had nothing to do with people's woes. Not even the people who had very little debt, because they could not get a credit card, or buy a home, living paycheck to paycheck. Then, lost their job because either their company shut down or cut staff, could not find another job, and basically ended up on the street. Yep, circumstance had nothing to do with their woes at all.

Scratch that hedge fund part.  Hedge fund managers work for the ultra-wealthy, and I imagine have nothing to do with some blue collar dude's pension and 401K. Then again, this is Uwe Boll.

The largest investors in many hedge and PE funds are pension plans.


Yeah, basically the way it works is you put money into your 401K/pension, the money then comes under the control of a hedge fund manager who uses it to buy up your company, strip the assets, sack everyone, and shift the remaining parts to China. So now you are unemployed, but hey your 401K just made extra 0.1% profit this year after the hedge fund manager scrapes off his $1b annual bonus.

Sometimes, revenge is just "red mist". People don't think about their actions - their emotions take over.

But I honestly can't think of it as much of a drama. Hedge fund managers don't have protection. You get a job in the office as a janitor, walk up to his floor and put a bullet in his brain. The end.

I thought of a similar story which was about revenge and money, but what it would be is that a guy buys shares in a rival company (think a 2 company market like AMD/Intel or Pepsi/Coke), and as he starts destroying the company by execution and sabotage, the shares in the rival company rise. And the story would be about the police investigating various murders at the company and finally tracking him down.

Excellent, make this into a video game and I am there. Better yet, make it an augmented reality game where you need to go to actual addresses of CEO and aim your phone/camera into windows to get the score.

So I'm sure when some idiot goes on a rampage against Wall Street bankers and the rich/ elite; we can all still blame the guns for causing him to do this, right?
 
Guns are bad.  Unless we can profit off their over-simplification and glorification.

Why get it back for some stooge to take it again? Burn everything down, they have more to lose.

That's fine, if bitter, scorched earth revenge is your goal.  But in the trailer, he comforts his wife and says everything will be fine, and he'll get it all back.  THIS MAKES NO SENSE.


Eh, people lie to their wives all the time.
