Imperfect; cheesy, but I loved it.,
This review is from: Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps [DVD] (DVD)
In many ways this is not a great film, but for fans of the original it really is a worthy sequel. There is a tendency to look back on certain films and deem them better than they actually were - Wall Street the original certainly falls into this bracket. This film does do the financial crisis in a worthy manner, but more than that it brings a depth to the money obsessed world of Gekko; a legendary screen creation if ever there was one; and money is not the ultimate in valuable commodities, time is for the older Gekko even if it is a close run thing. Cliched it certainly is, but this is a good film - 5 stars because I love the characters, but even if it is not your tasse de the it is a worthy film for any evening in.
