All the Money in the World tells the true story of the Getty kidnapping that shocked the world in the 1970s. But how "true" is this film?
As it turned out, the need to erase Kevin Spacey probably improved the finished film, but director Ridley Scott still spends too much time on the story's family drama than on the crime itself.
By the way, in real life, the victim in this kidnapping wasn't the angel he's depicted as in the movie. If All the Money in the World had dramatized the facts of the case, it would have been a much better film.
But aside from those critical squabbles, All the Money in the World offers viewers some important lessons about values, especially about wealth and fatherhood.
