Wall Street

In Wall Street Michael Douglas perfectly embodies the Reagan-era credo that "greed is good" and won an Oscar for his efforts. As a Donald Trump-like Wall Street raider aptly named Gordon Gecko (for his reptilian ability to attack corporate targets and swallow them whole), Douglas found a role tailor-made to his skill in portraying heartless men who've sacrificed humanity to power. He's a slick, seductive role model for the young ambitious Wall Street broker played by Charlie Sheen, who falls into Gecko's sphere of influence and instantly succumbs to the allure of risky deals and generous payoffs. With such perks as a high-rise apartment and women who love men for their money, Charlie's like a worm on Gecko's hook, blind to the corporate manoeuvring that puts him at odds with his own father (played by Sheen's off-screen father, Martin). With his usual lack of subtlety, writer-director Oliver Stone drew from the brokering experience of his own father to tell this Faustian tale for the "me" decade but the film's sledgehammer style is undeniably effective. A cautionary warning that Stone delivers on highly entertaining terms, Wall Street grabs your attention while questioning the corrupted values of a system that worships profit at the cost of one's soul. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

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

Product Description

The Ultimate Wall Street Merger

Wall Street

Michael Douglas received the 1987 Best Actor Academy Award® for his powerful performance as Gordon Gekko, a financial wizard who lures an ambitious young stock broker (Charlie Sheen) into the illegal, lucrative world of corporate espionage in this gripping morality tale about the American dream gone wrong.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Following a long prison term, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) finds himself on the outside of a world he once commanded. Hoping to repair his relationship with his daughter (Carey Mulligan), he forges an alliance with her fiancé (Shia LaBeouf). But Gekko is still a master manipulator... and now the stakes are higher than ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Money never sleeps, Pal 3 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
The eighties was a dreadful decade for movies. Top Gun, Rambo and Rocky were sapping the cinema-goers IQ/ brain cells. And then Oliver Stone came along and released the entertaining 'Platoon' in 1986. A year later he directed the award winning 'Wall Street'.

Often imitated, never surpassed, "Wall Street" is a stylish, intoxicating, stunning embodiment of an era when anybody could carve his way to the very top of American society by ruthless ambition and sheer determination; it was true when it was made, and it is possibly even more true today with the current economic gloom.

"The main thing about money, Bud, is that it makes you do things you don't want to do".

Gekko: "If somthing's worth doing it's worth doing for money. I'm talking liquid. Enough money to have your own jet. Enough money not to waste time. Fifty, one hundred million dollars. A player."

So strap on your braces, slick back your hair, light up an Esplendido and fire up the DVD player---money never sleeps, pal.....

Wall Street 2 is not a great movie. This review loses 1 star because of the sequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars One good film, one to forget... 15 Mar 2011
Format:Blu-ray
So having never seen either Wall Street film i thought i would take the plung and buy this bozset, after watching the first one i was impressed. The acting & story was phenomonal, i would have to give it a 5-star.

Then i watched the second one, oh my god was it bad, Shia LeBeouf (sp?) was absolutley dreadful & didnt play the role well at all. The story was very cheesy & ruined the first for me.

Wall Street - 5*
Wall Street 2 - 1*

Overall 3*

3.0 out of 5 stars 1 superb - 2 dreadful 23 Mar 2014
By markr TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first Wall Street movie is arguably a classic - superbly acted, engaging, and full of lines which became part of the vocabulary of the time 'greed is good' 'lunch is for wimps' and on and on. A magnificent portrayal of the lure of money and the corruption of values which it can lead to - a great film, which can be watched many times and still enjoyed

Wall Street 2 is just a huge disappointment, therefore- its really a polemic from Oliver Stone about climate change and the excesses of banking which led to the crash of 2008, with a weak and unbelievable story attached. The acting, even from Michael Douglas, is nowhere near the level of the first movie, and the characters are just not credible.

So as another reviewer has rightly said - 5 stars for the first one - 1 star for the second - so 3 overall seems fair

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic Michael Douglas 21 Feb 2014
By charlie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When paying for amazon prime and an item is covered by amazon prime you expect it arrive next day, its just unfortunate it didn't arrive next day, which is rather annoying considering the money paid for this service! The product itself however is a classic Michael Douglas film. Personally Wall Street 2 is my favourite with it being a more modern film starring Shia Le Bouf in a modern day wall street crash. I would certainly recommend this product but however do not recommend paying for next day delivery if you do'nt have prime as if my experience is anything to go by, you just wont get it next day!

Excellent value double pack. Wall Street 2 is a clever follow on to the first one, but doesn't quite have the feeling of engagment and wow factor
