money may never sleep, but i did during this awful, clearmoney-grab of a movie. i was disgusted at how bad this movie was.
Gecko's speach was great. Not a believable plotline with his daughter. Not as great as the first. Great camera shots of NY!
Very good movie, but a little disappointed in the ending
I like it
nice to see Michael Douglas do well
Good movie and acting from Michael Douglas.
This one was Ok. The first one was a lot better.
Wall Street had way too many $ charts etc. which took away from the movie- I only went to see it because Michael Douglas was in it. A great performance by Michael Douglas but not a very good movie.
Lame ending. Boring and long drawn out.
wow...boring..not half as good as the first one
Enjoyed the characters and the way I was engaged throughout this movie to think.
Unlike the first Wall Street, this one focusses more on the relationships using Wall Street as a backdrop. The first one was a much better portrayal of the world of money. Nice job on bringing the crisis of 2008 onto film, but would be lost on many not in the money business.
Excellent acting and great theme in this economy.
so boring makes you want to rip your eyes out not a good movie unless you know alot about wall street
Never saw the 1st so nothing to compare to. Felt the story dragged at times. Mulligan seems like an after thought to the movie. Too much crying.
Great drama that can really scare you about the realities of the economy.
Excellent cast - so glad to finally see a sequel to the wonderful original Wall Street!
Good movie to watch.
I enjoyed this movie. Great acting by all and although the terminology was lost on me it didn 't take away from the theme of the movie.
I enjoyed this sequel to Wall Street. The acting by Michael Douglas, Shia Lebeuf and Kerrie Mulligan was excellent. A lot a drama, a lot of the terminology was lost on me but it didn't take away from the main theme of the movie.
can wait for it to come out on dvd
Great acting. Labeouf and Mulligan's chemistry was amazing. I am not the type of person to understand what goes on on Wall Street and still this movie was incredible!
Without going into great detail, the movie had potential that it never lived up to. I left the theater with what I could best describe as *meh* feeling.
Slow paced. Greed is still good but not financing leveraging to the extent that requires gigantic bailouts by governments. Insider trading is still a big no no. Gordon Gekko realized that the most valuable asset is time. Once more faced with his demon, he salvages his soul by choosing love and family over THE GAME.
what a snoozer.. with the cast and the history of this film you'd think it would be a home run, not a foul ball.
wow, so enjoyed this, never saw the 1st one!
Very interesting and well worth seeing
In Oliver Stone's original Wall Street(1987) Gordon Gekko(Michael Douglas)famously said:"Greed is ...good."Now,Gekko is out of prison and is seemingly in search of redemption and a reconnection with his estranged daughter(Carey Mulligan).What results is a snoozefest;a movie which attempts to be relevent given the recent financial crisis.So here Greed is NOT good.
This movie didn't hold together comared with the original. Michael Douglas looks unwell (if if you don't know he was diagnosed with cancer after the movie release). Good rental.
impresive acting, good story plus if you are smart you can tell it resumes everything that is happening now!!
Parts of this movie were slow going and if you did not know or understand the stock market, then this movie was not for you. I took my teenage grandson and he did not enjoy it.
Over all 3 stars. The movie was too long, dragged on and the ending was abrupt. There needed to be more emphasis on Douglas' motives near the end.
Not as good as the original. Wish Michael Douglas all the best on his health battle.
WOW! It was kinda boring.. I'm not into politics personally, I hate anything having to do with government, politics.. etc.. But it was a great movie! I enjoyed it. Very intersting.. I was expecting it to be boring, But it was really quite good. I enjoyed it!
I love ,love those actors, but this movie was a big disappointment. It was not M.D.'movie. It was a bit naive and looked like a story tale.
Thought it was excellent.....watched the first Wall Street after just to understand it better.
out standing movie execelent acting & buitifull locations (the cities) & the nighbirhood
money may not sleep, but i did; during this movie.
I saw it but, Can somebody tell me what the movie is about? It is not a documentary, not a thriller, not a drama or an action movie either!!! Lousy presentations from every actor/actress including Douglas. Really slow and too long for telling just parts of different stories. Charlie Sheen appearance is a joke!!
Great movie start to finish. MD and SL played their parts superbly. Keep focused on them. David and Goliath in the 21st Century only using 5 small rumours instead of five small stones.
best movie i have ever seen
Interesting and kept the audience focused.
Movie sends a confusing message regarding Wall Street. The obvious branding of a particular motorcycle and a particular beer is an ironic sellout. The ending belongs in a storybook, not in an Oliver Stone movie. Cinematography excellent, acting generally very good.
I'm so excited to see Gordon Gekko back!!! I've been waiting 20-something years for this film.
One of the most boring film of all time
