From Amazon.co.uk

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps has the compelling backdrop of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, features Michael Douglas returning to one of the defining roles of his career, stars two charismatic young actors (Shia LaBeouf, Transformers, and Carey Mulligan, An Education) and some wily old hands (Susan Sarandon, Frank Langella, and Eli Wallach)--so why is the movie such a dud? For one thing, director Oliver Stone doesn't bother to genuinely explore what caused the stock-market crash of 2008; instead, the movie's plot revolves around melodramatic backroom machinations and financial revenge, none of which has any real emotional heft. For another, Stone is possibly the most obvious director of all time. When the characters are talking about financial bubbles, the movie has shots of children in the park blowing bubbles; when the market crashes, the movie cuts to cascading dominoes--Stone beats every metaphor into submission, and if the audience feels bludgeoned at the same time, well, that's just too bad. Add to that portentous dialogue like "He's a monkey dancing on a razorblade," incoherent references to sub-prime mortgages and other financial technobabble, and a woefully mismatched soundtrack by David Byrne and Brian Eno, and the result is muddled, sluggish, and confusing. It's too bad; Douglas is as charmingly reptilian as ever. Also featuring a pointless cameo by Charlie Sheen, star of the original Wall Street. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
Wall Street remains a firm favourite of mine with the edgy plot, excellent cast and back to a time when Oliver Stone could dish out the on screen goodies as good as anyone sitting in the director's chair. In short Oliver Stone = Interesting well made movies with real edge.

I had mixed feelings about watching this film, partly because Stone's more recent films paled compared to previous productions and secondly the cast, Douglas aside I wasn't convinced Shia LaBeouf (fine for Transformers) was up to the job of this kind of role, and on both counts the film comes up short but the problems go beyond Stone and a single actor. The other problem is the original Wall Street, being such an iconic film for many just didn't really need a sequel hence the term "why bother" springs to mind.

Anyway onto the plot, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) is released from prison after serving him time for insider trading (at this point we still have the bones of what could be a decent sequel) However Gekko is not the ruthless trample on everyone financial war monger he used to be, he's now a reformed man. Gekko sets about trying to "put right" his relationship with his distant and unforgiving daughter Winnie Gekko (Carey Mulligan) who is less than happy about the Gekko legacy of corruption and greed as well as the suicide of her brother which she blames Gekko for
She happens to be dating a young up and coming trader Jacob Moore (Shia LaBeouf) who soon ends up helping Gekko try to rebuild his father/daughter relationship and in return Gordon will help Jacob get revenge on the man who pushed his MD (Louis Zabel ) played by Frank Langella to suicide.

Hmm. Not bad. But it lacks the impact of Wall Street 1.

Here Gekko, newly released from jail, has been tamed somewhat. The picture on his apartment wall featuring the Dutch tulipmania craze shows he still has one eye on the madness of the market. There is still some fight left in him.

The action in the movie takes place in the setting of the 2007-08 subprime crisis.

I found the romance thing a bit contrived. These two were an unnatural pairing.

As a rule I like Oliver Stone's movies, but felt he was cashing in on the film's predecessor to some extent. However, Wall Street 2 is a good film. But Gekko is the real star here - as indeed he was in Wall Street 1.

Format: DVD
I will say the acting was good and the film moved along. The opening scene of Gordon Gekko (Michael Milken type) getting out of prison and getting his belongings made me long to watch the "Blues Brothers." The soundtrack sounds like a bad Beatles cover bad. They really didn't think hard there. Once out, Gordon writes a book about the coming collapse on Wall Street. The crash of 2008 provides a background of corruption, greed, stock manipulation, etc. for a drama that centers around Gordon, his estranged daughter and her Wall Street boyfriend. If you are looking for a good film which exposes the collapse, this isn't it. If you are looking for a movie which is true and the names of the characters have been changed, this isn't it. If you are looking for a heart warming drama with a happy ending, you've come close, but a lot of the background jargon interferes that warm and fuzzy feeling you are supposed to develop for the characters. Cary Mulligan as Winnie was perhaps the person we could identify with the most, although her character's disdain for her father was a bit unbelievable. This appears to be a half-hearted effort by Oliver Stone.

Format: DVD
Oliver Stone's films are normally heavy going, humourless and preachy; he likes to smash the audience over the head with his moralising and in "JFK" he got almost everything factually wrong. However, I always appreciated the original 1987 "Wall Street" for its sharp screenplay, superlative acting and editing and morally astute "greed-is-NOT-good" message. It's fair to say that Michael Douglas's devastating performance as Gordon Gekko defined the original film's core in personifying the selfish, cold, win-at-all-costs immorality of the long-gone 1980s.

So 23 years on, what of this belated sequel, "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps"? Well, Stone is now a better film-maker, matured and wiser. He has crafted a near-excellent lesson in morality attacking this time not the activities of a few rogue traders, but the systemic corruption and imbalances inherent in a banking system with little external oversight or realistic internal managerial prudence which allows for continued out-of-control borrowing, leverage and debt-trading on insubstantial property assets on a truly galactic scale, to the point where it cracks and the global economy is almost brought to its knees. These guys can, at the end of the day, virtually dictate that government steps in to save them from going under because the consequences of failing to shore up the financial system are too awful to contemplate: social and economic meltdown, the "end of the world."

Douglas resurrects his memorable role as Gordon Gekko in a second career-landmark performance, if anything even sharper than in the 1987 film. He has some killer lines ("If you stop telling lies about me, I'll stop telling the truth about you" and "Hey! If someone were to take out this building right now, there'd be no-one left to rule the world!
