All the Money in the World is a 2017 biographical crime film directed by Ridley Scott and written by David Scarpa. The film stars Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, and Mark Wahlberg. The film takes place in the 1970s and follows the true story of the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III, the grandson of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer). When John Paul is kidnapped in Rome, his mother Gail Harris (Michelle Williams) attempts to negotiate a ransom for his release. However, J. Paul Getty, who at the time was the richest man in the world, refuses to pay the requested ransom and instead sends his security consultant Fletcher Chase (Mark Wahlberg) to investigate.

The film highlights the dramatic power struggle between Gail Harris and J. Paul Getty as they each fight for control over John Paul's future. Gail wants to do whatever it takes to retrieve her son, while Getty is more concerned with protecting his wealth and maintaining his power.

The standout performance in the film is undoubtedly Christopher Plummer as J. Paul Getty. Plummer was not originally cast in the role; it was originally given to Kevin Spacey. However, after sexual misconduct allegations were made against Spacey, Scott decided to reshoot all of his scenes with Plummer just a month before the film's release. Plummer's performance as the stubborn and ruthless Getty is commanding, and he delivers his lines with a sharp wit and biting sarcasm.

Michelle Williams also delivers a powerhouse performance as Gail Harris. She portrays a strong and determined mother who is willing to do whatever it takes to save her son. Williams conveys Gail's desperation to get her son back, while also showing her vulnerability and fear for her son's safety.

Mark Wahlberg rounds out the talented cast as Fletcher Chase. Although his role is not as prominent as Plummer or Williams, Wahlberg's performance is solid, and he brings a sense of calm and level-headedness to his scenes.

The film's cinematography, particularly the scenes shot in Rome, is stunning. The hustle and bustle of the city is captured in a way that makes the viewer feel as though they are right in the middle of it all. There is also a sense of tension throughout the film, as the viewer is constantly on edge waiting to find out what will happen next.

Overall, All the Money in the World is a well-executed film that offers a glimpse into the dark side of wealth and power. The performances, particularly Plummer as J. Paul Getty, are outstanding, and the story is told in a way that keeps the viewer engaged from beginning to end.

All the Money in the World is a 2017 thriller with a runtime of 2 hours and 12 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.8 and a MetaScore of 72.
