David Ehrlich

Directed without distinction by Stephen Gaghan, the film unfolds like a chintzy ripoff of David O. Russell ripping off Martin Scorsese ripping off real life.

Peter Debruge

For those willing to take the characters at face value, it's a deliriously entertaining ride, as a man with a dream drops his last quarter in the slot machine and goes home with the entire casino.

McConaughey made more of an impression as a stock-trading bro in his single scene in The Wolf of Wall Street. Here, there's not even anything compelling about his fall.

Alonso Duralde

While the movie seems to be merely another celebration of grasping capitalism and dick-swinging contests of masculinity, it's got far more up its sleeve.

Gold is fitfully entertaining, but for a movie that gives itself license to go bigger and weirder than real life, its imagination for excess runs out whenever it isn't focused intently on its star.

[McConaughey's] intensity never flags. What's missing from this story of struggle and glory and the need to believe is a fever to match his.

An entertaining yarn that's never less than watchable, even if it pales in comparison to more charged true(ish) stories like American Hustle and McConaughey's own Dallas Buyers Club.
