One of the worst movies ever,
This review is from: Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (DVD)
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.

Totally agree! Tediously tiresome without a good script, etc. Incredible it got released like that.
