Customer Reviews

Great movie, well plotted and dramatic.
Craig
I can't even remember the first movie, so I can't say it's bad in comparison to that one - but it is just plain bad.
Maries
The uninspired script makes this one tedious for the most part and it makes this film seem too long.

I've worked on Wall Street my whole life. The first film was cut throat Ivan Boseky insider trading and raw greed at its finest. Michael Douglas was simply riveting. I had been waiting for the sequel ever since announced. Going opening day, I was stunned after watching it the first time. Yes, Oliver Stone nails the Collapse of Wall Street in 2008 with the mortgage meltdown. Every character can be parlayed into a real life individual involved in the Bear Stearns and Lehman collapse. But the real story is about second chances in life, fighting for family, doing the right thing, commitment to work and the price paid for loyalty. Shia Labeouf (Jake Moore) is at his best when he sets out on a course of vindictive revenge after James Brolin (Bretton James) causes the "perceived" collapse of Keller Zabel(KZI) and the suicide of his mentor and KZI's leader Lou Zabel.
Michael Douglas (Gordon Gekko) and Shia Labeouf team up given that Jake is engaged to Gordon's daughter Winnie. They embark on path to understand KZI's collapse and to seek revenge, plus make a few dollars along the way for Gordon. Gordon and Jake make a series of "trades" to learn that Bretton James and his firm, Churchill Schwartz, were illegally betting on everything under the Sun to destroy KZI. Oliver Stone's attention to detail is STUNNING. Words won't do justice to the perfection of the each set. You have to know Wall Street to know that on a scale of 1 to 100, he gets a 99 because no one gets a 100. Gordon's real redemption is his name, reputation and a deep love for his family. Jake simply wants to do right by the death of Lou Zabel and persecute those respondsible. Wrap those emotions around a fast paced collapse of Wall Street, and you have a beautiful movie. Vetrans of investing will be amazed, but the film has a broad reach.

This might not be the five star entertainment that the original was, but it's still damned good. Contrary to popular belief Gordon Gekko is there, he's just in the details. "Bulls make money, bears make money. They pigs? They get slaughtered." This is rock solid entertainment with wisdom to spare. And, it warrants MULTIPLE viewings.

And to top it off, as a former Wall Streeter who spent endless hours on the trading floor of one of the biggest brokerage firms, I can tell you that they got the details right.

** SPOILER ALERT ** Do not read if you do not want to know details **

I saw the original in the theatre in 1987 and was hoping for a sequel since then. This film was originally to be released in April 2010, but was pushed back to September 2010 as it was included in the Cannes Film Festival, and the studio probably did not want the film to get lost among the summer flotsam.

That said, this film was worth the wait. If you are an aficionado of the original, you will appreciate the homage that this film pays to it. The soundtrack features David Byrne (of Talking Heads fame, featured in the original soundtrack), Gekko bumps into Bud Fox at a party, and LaBoeuf has the same real estate broker as Fox and Darian used...the lady with the annoying voice. Upon his release from prison, Gekko is also handed his brick-sized cellphone, which gives the viewer a glimpse of just how much things have changed since the original. Would have also been nice to bring back Sean Young or Terence Stamp in some capacity. Eli Wallach had a bit part which also delivered comeuppance superbly to Brolin's character.

I think that Michael Douglas must have a clause in his contracts that require his to give at least one great speech in each of his films. For this film, it was when he addressed the college class. Stone truly delivered here, and laid the blame for the crisis exactly where it belongs, which is to say with the majority of us. The reference to the bartender who owned three houses was perfect.

The film's weaknesses are few, but still significant. Specifically, Laboeuf is miscast and comes across about as threatening as a box of facial tissues. Sheen brought a power and passion for both good and bad to the original.

I absolutely LOVE Michael Douglas, I work in the financial markets myself for a living and LOVE it! And I liked the first Wall Street film. But this Wall Street, I wouldn't even call a film! It was that bad! Absolutely no direction whatsoever and to make it worse, it was all choppy and completely drawn out. Even the general vibe of the different scenes had no consistency!! I tried to keep watching it, hoping for some kind of redemption on any level, and it JUST WASN'T there. If you haven't already seen the first one, I would recommend that. And there are a couple of other great "wall street" business films that come to mind, The Boiler Room & Rogue Trader. Both of those are about a newbee coming into the business and getting in way over his own head (one way or the other). I'd recommend those films over this one.

Sometimes a movie comes along that gets mixed reviews and it may be due to something controversial or some other reason. Seeing all the bad reviews for this movie I had held off seeing it. I am a great fan of almost all the stars especially Michael Douglas and Shia LaBeouf. I finally thought how bad can it really be and ordered it on demand on cable. I am writing this review to warn everyone - with this movie it honestly is not a matter of opinion, the movie is just plain terrible. I don't get how people are going overboard criticizing the acting for there is very little for any of the actors to do. I blame this disaster on Oliver Stone and him alone. He is obviously trying to make a statement on money, its business etc. No point is made and there is no story. All the actors walk through each scene like zombies for the entire script is ridiculous. There is no emotion for the acrtors to grasp onto. The scenes where tears are shown are laughable for they are so poorly written and directed. With this movie there is no beginning, middle or end. When it was finally gratefully over I just felt like I had wasted 2 hours. I had no idea what the point of it all was. I really want to know what power Oliver Stone used to convince all these A list actors to participate in this terrible film. He has created and directed a true mess.

I very rarely write such negative reviews but I must be honest and feel people considering watching this film or even God forbid purchasing it should be warned. It is not being ridiculed for it is a bad sequel but for the mere fact that it is a bad film. Liking the actors is not enough to get through it. Avoid at all cost.
