Greed: discover the Cineworld Unlimited responses

Steve Coogan plays the disgustingly wealthy Sir Richard McCreadie in darkly comic satire Greed. And Cineworld Unlimited members got to see the movie in advance of its UK release date.

The bullying and ruthless McReadie is a wealthy retail magnate whose professional reputation is tarnished after an inquiry into his working practices. To maintain the image of the gilded, unstoppable billionaire, McReadie throws a decadent 60th birthday in Greece, populated with celebrity lookalikes (after the actual celebrities fail to turn up). And, of course, it's themed after Ridley Scott's Roman epic Gladiator.

Greed is the latest collaboration between Coogan and director Michael Winterbottom, who previously worked to acclaimed effect on the likes of 24 Hour Party People and The Trip. The movie is an unblinking, savagely funny depiction of modern-day capitalism gone mad, so what did Unlimited members make of it?

We'll start with this from Simon Winstanley, who says the movie, although funny, has a more pointed message than he expected.

Andy Brown praises Coogan and the rest of the cast, which also includes David Mitchell as McCreadie's long-suffering biographer.

Jade Scott Savage says the movie is bound to get viewers thinking about the realities of the fashion industry. Plus, the movie has lots of laughs.

James Acraman says comparisons can be drawn to a certain classic Charles Dickens character (and no, we don't mean David Copperfield).

Nevertheless, the film didn't work for everyone. Kev O'Donnell says the movie's message is too glib to have any real impact.

And The Fourth Dimension says the film's frequent changes in tone often led to confusion.

Greed is on wide release in Cineworld cinemas from the 21st of February. If you were at last night's screening, tweet us your reactions @Cineworld and using #CineworldUnlimited.

Your next Cineworld Unlimited screening is heartwarming comedy-drama Military Wives. Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan star in this inspirational story, based on true events, about the formation of the first-ever military wives' choir. The film screens in advance on the 11th of February.
