On October 1, 2017, Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of more than 20,000 concertgoers from his hotel room at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. In a matter of minutes, Paddock killed 58 people and wounded more than 400. It was the largest mass shooting in the history of the United States. Yet, just a couple of years later, Vegas seems to have forgotten it completely. Needless to say, mass shootings are not good for business and it didn't take long for the Vegas money machine to get to work making this one disappear. In the aftermath of re-marketing Las Vegas as a safe destination for tourists, many questionable practices were put into place-one of the most shocking being filing a lawsuit against the victims of this devastating tragedy. On top of that, despite the popular #VegasStrong movement and nationwide fund-raising, there's still a huge question of where all that money went. An enthralling documentary about the dark side of the Las Vegas economy, Money Machine exposes Sin City's ...

I have been researching the horrific and deadly attack in Las Vegas since right after it happened and I have watched several documentaries (all of them were obviously hard to watch) but none were as powerful and disturbing as this one. To see the faces of some of the surviving victims who were interviewed was hard to watch (I cannot imagine what these people experienced) as they spoke about their involvement in this attack (I will forever refer to it as terrorism because those people were clearly terrorized even if it was not officially a terrorist attack) and their outrage at the resort company suing them (something that was not ever done before after something like this). The brief part with the attacker's brother was interesting when he spoke about their lives and how their father was a known criminal . I'm not a major conspiracy theorist but I think they covered up what happened with Stephen Paddock. My continued sympathy lies with the families of the fallen and the surviving victims whose lives were destroyed in such a horrific and unreasonable manner. Read More
Because there are room for a deepploughing 10 episode crime tv-.series of doumentary stuff in here. but one thing for sure, yet another example it is, how voulnerable you are in open spaces in the usa (or britain or even norway if at a political summer camp). give the victims a real comprehensive amount of damage compensation payment, and do the lock out on the vouchers that has let this aftermath become as it has.<br/><br/>productionwise its touching many aspects of the happening, but it could have gone deeper on the individual vouchers in clark county , city of las vegas, and the state of nevada. the grumpy old man recommends a look, and my advice is...always plan an emergency route out of the venue when attending large crowds or concerts, it will happen again im afraid Read More

I suggest to all of you to look up a video on youtube that takes a bumb stock gun exactly like they say paddock used and it sounded nothing like the gun in the video but what some experts did with this video is compared a belt fed AK and it sounded EXACTLY like the gun in the video recordings we have seen on the internet or in this movie. I really wish they would have brought it up in this movie. However, I think the people who made this film were also concerned about upsetting some very powerful people so although they implied that there was more than one shooter and that we have been lied to they did not do it in the most obvious of ways and still entertained the fact that they think Paddock did it. It is clear after this movie that PAddock did not do this! If he was upset with the casinos then he would have attacked them. The people that knew him said he was nice guy and was never rude to anyone which doesn't sound like a guy that would take out his rage on innocent people below instead of on the hotel and casino. What I have read is that Paddock was a CIA operative doing an arms deal with some terrorist group and it went horribly wrong and thats where all the chaos came from. One thing is certain is that what happened that day we will never fully know the truth because this was not Paddocks doing! I believe ither he was jjust unlucky and wrong place and time or was in some sort of CIA operation but we have all been had and I am so upset that we will never truly know what happened that night.<br/><br/>This was an excellent film! Thnank you for making it Read More
