Following a lengthy prison term, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) finds himself on the outside looking in at a world he once commanded. Hoping to repair his relationship with his daughter, Winnie (Carey Mulligan), Gekko forges an alliance with her fiancé, Jake (Shia LaBeouf). But Winnie and Jake learn the hard way that Gekko is still a master manipulator who will stop at nothing to reclaim his rightful place at the top of Wall Street.

I really did not like the music score. I understand it's supposed to be more 'hip', but I just did not care for it. To me, the score just didn't mesh with the tone of what the movie was trying to accomplish.
Also, some of the acting was just a little forced, though Michael Douglas was just superb in making the transition from the vibrant Gorden Gekko in Wall Street to a more subdued character here. Still filled with cunning and greed, he just played his part right for what was needed.
Though not anywhere near the number of worthy lines to quote verbatim, Gekko did have some good ones to remember! All in all, Money Never Sleeps was entertaining, and had no dead spots. The main plot was good, and it certainly keeps your attention if you're into this type of movie.
How? The main culprit is the weak script. All the Wall Street stuff crackles with energy, but the situation involving Winnie, Gordon Gekko's daughter, and her fiance and father just doesn't add up to much. Michael Douglas is excellent as usual, and really tries to sell the idea of Gekko as a man torn by his old lust for power and greed and his need to reconcile with the one family member he has left -- but I just didn't buy it, and that's the fault of the screenwriting, not the actor. Douglas exudes charm as always, and the scenes involving him getting out of prison are at once humorous and heartbreaking, but the film quickly loses steam.
But there are mediocre performances, too. Shia Labeouf has all the tools he needs to make his character -- Winnie's fiance Jacob Moore -- a fascinating study, but for reasons I can't quite articulate, he doesn't quite pull it off. What is it with this young chap? He was truly marvelous in "The Greatest Game Ever Played," but since then seems to have made a career of being underwhelming in some very big movies -- the fourth "Indiana Jones," the "Transformers" series, and this. As for Carey Mulligan: She pulls out all the stops (and the tears) in her performance as Winnie, yet ultimately I found it very difficult to care about her.
I still give the Blu-ray release three stars, though, because of the extras, which actually eclipse the movie in terms of quality. There's a lot of material here about the way Wall Street works "then and now," and also a really fine little history of that area of Manhattan that was more gripping than just about anything else on the disc. Too bad the feature itself falls short -- but I got it used, and all in all I think I made a wise investment. ;)
