Of all the films I have seen so far this year, this is hands down my favorite. This really is a rare film. A film where the acting is nothing short of perfect and the script is hilarious. It's in my top three for Martin Scorsese's best work.

The film is such a fantastic depiction of the story about Jordan Belford. The insight throughout the film into the life and mind of someone so powerful and smart, yet deceitful makes it worth watching alone. However, the comedy throughout is icing on the cake.

It's not often as well where a film with this sort of genre is done so well. Leonardo DiCaprio is nothing short of flawless in his role as Jordan Belford. How he didn't win an Oscar, amazes me. He definitely feel like the right choice for the role and he portrays Belford incredibly well. Jonah Hill also pulled off a great, always hilarious, performance. I'm 100% sure that there was not a single piece of bad acting though this whole 3 hour long film.

For some, the amount of swearing, drugs and "mature themes" in the film was overboard. You need to take into account, however, this is Jordan Belfords life you're seeing, of course there were moments were it was over exaggerated, but it would be rude to tone it down to satisfy the needs of the few.

It's definitely my best film of the year and almost my favorite film ever. If you like a good, well done comedy...this is for you. It's a story that everyone needs to see, it's an insight into a life that none of us will ever experience personally, and that is what makes this film so good.

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.

This is a well made and well acted movie. It's good entertainment but lacks a satisfying resolution and, as I have often found with Scorcese's work, revels in and glamourizes villainy, degeneracy, sociopathy, irresponsibility and has the usual plethora of loud-mouthed pigs and scum who make my blood coil, esp. when I notice that their values are glorified in government, in companies and in day to day social interaction. I'm tired of the the Scorcese sociopath deal - it's the only theme in his films and it's getting old .

Also very little indication is made in the film of the ocean of empty wallets, broken lives and suicidal despair of the victims of the casual frauding (basically all of us, directly or indirectly, who are victims of sociopathic values) and as always the film is a smoke-screen for true banking power which I'm sure is far more cold, cynical and calculating.

So four stars for film-making, two stars for depth and focus, an average of three stars.

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).
