The film has had mixed reviews both from critics and indeed reviewers,
having watched the film, I can easily understand how after watching the
movie a reviewer could easily give the film 5/5 equally I would understand
a score of 1/5.....it's that sort of movie, you either love it or hate it.
A Film by acclaimed director 'Martin Scorsese' actually based worryingly
on real events.
'Jordan Belfort' gets hooked by the cut and thrust of the world of stockbroking
at an early age, he's taught by a skilled fraudster, and soon gets used to the
high-life.
When the Stock-Market crashes, 'Jordan's new-found lifestyle seems to be on
the slide, however a newspaper advert noticed by his first wife gets him back
in the saddle.
What he'd learnt in his earlier position, he uses to feather his nest, corruption
had become a way of life.
Setting up his own trading centre, natural progression.
The money soon roll's in life-style changes take hold pretty speedily, there is in
truth more money coming-in than he and his staff know what to do with.
'Jordan' earning himself the name 'The Wolf of Wall Street' because of his
predatory style of trading.
Interest from the press draws unwelcome attention from the F.B.I.
The Film - a constant stream of partying, drug taking, mixing with prostitutes with
frequent nudity sequences, and of course dodgy dealing.
Crude, rude and loud......over confidence could well prove to be 'Jordan's' downfall.

Poor ol’ Leo, what does he have to do to get his Oscar? Here he teams up (yet again) with Martin Scorsese to play the real life (well, Hollywood adapted) tale of Jordan xcxcxcxc – a New York stock broker of dubious morales – who lives life in the fast lane (and swears a lot).

If you like Leo and/or Scorsese then this is for you. It’s an exercise in excess. From its excessive foul language to its excessive nudity and even its excessive (three hour) run-time – everything here is over the top. And it’s pretty good.

Scorsese does what he has been doing best lately, i.e. getting a good performance out of Leo and piles on his trademark monologues and tracking shots, while filming grown men behaving *very* badly. Leo seems to be on overdrive and cranks up his acting to the max, screaming, shouting and generally working himself up into a manic frenzy. Both of which are pretty fun to watch.

If you want to know what ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ is like, think the characters from America Psycho and put them in the setting of ‘Wall Street’ and add the foul language from Goodfellas then you’re sort of in the right area.

It’s pretty entertaining. You may not like all the characters (in fact you probably won’t even like a single one), but you’ll probably enjoy watching them fall from grace with a bump. Just as long as you can tolerate the shouting, the drug-taking and the nudity then you’ll get something out of this.

My only complaint was the length. Yes, three hours was a little too long in my opinion (apparently it had been trimmed down from FOUR hours!); I felt a few of the scenes had been dragged out a little too long and a little more ruthless editing might have been in order. But, I’d certainly watch it again (once I’ve stopped swearing like a trooper and thumping my chest while at work).

The last time DiCaprio made a film based on a true story, it was Catch Me if You Can, and it was wonderful. The Wolf of Wall Street does not live up to expectation.

The story is funny, but funny as in it would get a few laughs at a party where everyone had a bit too much to drink, but not funny enough to make a major film out of.

The length of the film is also a problem. It is nearly 3 hours long! That kind of length may work for a fantasy epic such as The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, but for a not particularly good film with a type of crude humour that stops being funny after about half an hour, it becomes very tedious.

Overall then, this film is really not worth watching. It doesn't remain funny for long, the plot isn't particularly interesting and it gets boring after 40 minutes, let alone 2 hours 50 minutes. Doesn't live up to the bar set by Catch Me if You Can.

Funny at times but nothing else going on except that. One big cliché.It clearly glamourizes the egotistical debauched excesses ( I include salary here with sex, drugs.. etc..) of banking culture. The prostitute women (that's all of them apart from maid, Aunty and first wife) are glamourized too as in real life they are usually pale and thin and desperate; the sex money paying for their drug addictions. Leonardo isn't right; great acting, energy etc...but the character is one dimensional and cliché, almost cartoon-like. He just doesn't quite have the unnerving edge that Ray Liotta in Good fellas has. But ultimately, the film has no depth or anything interesting or insightful going on. If you are going to release a film about corrupt bankers whose lies, greed and dirty dealing has had a proven detrimental effect on the world economy, people's savings, businesses, mortgages then let the audience leave the film feeling something that's relevant to the crisis or at least something stimulating, a clever angle that can start discussion...something! Surely that's what film is about. It's the job of the director to Wow us with their cinema. I can only call this film a comedy...its 3 hours of the same entertainment throughout.
