Boring an manipulative

Before I watched this dreary lot of crap, I had the greatest respect for Oliver Stone as a Director. I read the reviews for this sequel on IMDb and I couldn't believe that Oliver Stone would make a dreadful movie truly deserving of the low score it had. The MO for this one seems to have been - take the star of the great original "Wall Street", stir in a cameo of the co-star of the original who's since been disgraced and who'd done nothing worthy at all since Wall Street, contact David Byrne for a soundtrack because the end credits of the original movie so effectively used Talking Heads' "Home", add a generous helping of Wall Street greed and corporate chicanery and voila, what do you have at the end of all this. The answer here is pretty much nothing. I feel really insulted by such sloppy film-making which was deliberately calculated just to cash in on the success of the original. Among its many, many faults, this movie at 2'13" was WAY too long, indescribably boring, self-important, unconvincing and an utter failure as any kind of entertainment. I was bored to death through the whole thing and I felt like the victim of a terrible manipulation based solely on the original concept that was so much better executed all those years ago with the original Wall Street. I will regularly and very happily watch the original in the future just as I have in the past. But, I am very glad I only paid about 5 bucks for this lot of crap sequel in a remainders bin at the local DVD shop. It's not a movie I will ever watch again. JMV

Lots of potential.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is the type of movie that should be watched more than once especially if you don't know a lot about Wall Street and businesses. The movie opens with the foolish myth of how humans came into existence. One of the main characters "Jake Moore" (Shia LaBeouf) is a wall street guy who is dating "Winnie Gekko" (Carey Mulligan) grown daughter of "Gordon Gekko" (Michael Douglas). Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps presents a few different scenarios and situations, some more important than others. "Gordon Gekko" just gets out of prison and works to make a name for himself in the world of finance again, "Jake Moore" attempts to reconcile "Gordon Gekko" with his daughter "Winnie Gekko", "Winnie Gekko" has the attitude of disliking the business of Wall Street, yet she dates a Wall Street guy, that was briefly mentioned, but never explored further, what was explored was the negative traits of "Gordon Gekko", "Winnie Gekko" clearly is right about how "Gordon Gekko" uses people, but she is unfair towards him in other ways, example blaming him for her brother's wrong path in life, people make their own choices and her brother was grown, you can't blame the parent for the grown child's wrong decisions. A reviewer mentioned that "Shia LaBeouf looks too young to play a rich wall street guy", being young has nothing to do with it, this character went to college and then went straight into the world of wall street earning lots of money and he made investments, it isn't unbelievable at all. The lyrical soundtrack is absolutely awful, but not as bad as to ruin the movie. The performances are natural and there is a brilliant scene "Not About The Money" where "Winnie" reminds "Jake" of what is important in their current situation, Carey Mulligan is fantastic in that scene, she reacts just like a regular girlfriend would react in that situation. The scene where "Louis Zabel" (Frank Langella) kills himself by leaning over into an oncoming train is disturbing, what makes it disturbing is when the screen turns to black and the people in the train station all give a horrified scream all at once, it is supposed to be effective, but it is just too much, if you watch this with headphones on, take them off during that scene or skip over it, the flashback of the piercing screams later on in the movie is just as disturbing. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps story line goes back and forth between the relationships of the main characters and "Gordon Gekko" trying to get back in the game as well as "Jake" turning into "Gordon Gekko" himself, until "Winnie" gives him a wake up call by temporarily leaving him. The at times contradictory attitude of "Winnie" is never established as if she is supposed to be contradictory or if she is always right, but viewers can make up their own mind and it's obvious, but she is a likable character who can easily seem confusing to the viewers. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps also shows viewers if "Gordon Gekko" is for real or not, at one point he seems to want to change and then we see that he hasn't changed at all, but then it all comes down to the question of him truly wanting to be in his daughter's life again or not. What is unclear is if they reconciled, or if he just did the right thing by her at the end and left it at that due to him not being there at the very end scene at his grandchild/their child's 1st birthday party. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is a good film, but they failed to be clear on a couple of scenarios, unless it was intentional.

I was grossly disappointed

I anxiously had awaited the completion of this film for years, only to come away wondering what happened. The original Wall Street was one of the most engrossing movies I have ever seen; this was one of the least. The entire film was horribly miscast. Shia LeBouf is hardly the epitome of a Wall Street corporate raider and definitely not threatening. Michael Douglas' role was grotesquely muted and not what I had hoped for...or expected from Oliver Stone. The only character who seemed to be properly cast was James Brolin. The plot was thin and underdeveloped. Of course, I am comparing it to the original Wall Street which may be unfair. Like most sequels, this one largely disappointed and under delivered. I felt it was one of Oliver Stone's poorest films to date. At least Michael Douglas has a handful of good quotes to remember.
