4.0 out of 5 stars GEKKO RETURNS, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps [DVD] (DVD)
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.
