Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

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 --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

Wall Street remains a firm favourite of mine with the edgy plot, excellent cast and back to a time when Oliver Stone could dish out the on screen goodies as good as anyone sitting in the director's chair. In short Oliver Stone = Interesting well made movies with real edge.

I had mixed feelings about watching this film, partly because Stone's more recent films paled compared to previous productions and secondly the cast, Douglas aside I wasn't convinced Shia LaBeouf (fine for Transformers) was up to the job of this kind of role, and on both counts the film comes up short but the problems go beyond Stone and a single actor. The other problem is the original Wall Street, being such an iconic film for many just didn't really need a sequel hence the term "why bother" springs to mind.

Anyway onto the plot, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) is released from prison after serving him time for insider trading (at this point we still have the bones of what could be a decent sequel) However Gekko is not the ruthless trample on everyone financial war monger he used to be, he's now a reformed man. Gekko sets about trying to "put right" his relationship with his distant and unforgiving daughter Winnie Gekko (Carey Mulligan) who is less than happy about the Gekko legacy of corruption and greed as well as the suicide of her brother which she blames Gekko for
She happens to be dating a young up and coming trader Jacob Moore (Shia LaBeouf) who soon ends up helping Gekko try to rebuild his father/daughter relationship and in return Gordon will help Jacob get revenge on the man who pushed his MD (Louis Zabel ) played by Frank Langella to suicide.

When Oliver Stone made Wall Street back in the 1980s, he intended it to be a salutary tale of how the financial markets could be a force for good which were in danger of being hijacked by selfishness and greed. Twenty years on, narked that nobody took any notice of him the first time around, he's made a sequel which puts forward the same message just in rather more strident terms. It's just a shame that he doesn't hit the target with quite the same accuracy as he did the first time around, but with age has come a certain degree of self-indulgence.

The weakness is that it is in fact two films shoehorned together in a slightly unhappy marriage, and the joins show at times. On the one hand we have what is a pretty good dramatisation of the financial crash of 2008, which includes a quick précis of why and how it happened and why and how the bailouts were put together. I found this genuinely interesting if a bit light on detail and with nothing like enough fingers being pointed at responsible parties, but I realise that a financial docudrama wouldn't play to packed houses and so we get the punters through the door by bringing back Gordon Gekko who remains as iconic, and as self-interested, ruthless, manipulative and oily as ever. Michael Douglas as Gekko is the best thing in the film, but he brings with it its greatest weakness - a relationship between his daughter (Cary Mulligan) and his protégé (Shia leBeouf).

Mulligan and leBoeuf have one of those Hollywood relationships where you can see absolutely no reason why these two people are together beyond the fact that the script says they should be and where saying "I love you" justifies any sort of behaviour required to move the plot along.

It pains me to say this, it really does, but this is dreadful; shocking at times, and not in a good way. Overall, it's mostly just painfully dull and stagnant; you'll be bored stiff (unless there's something seriously seriously wrong with you...). Though the ridiculous last 20/30 mins has to hold its hand up as being the final nail to the coffin; absolutely ridiculous. A highly uninteresting snore of a story, which doesn't seem to make sense most of the times, rushes by with no real purpose or meaning, or character/plot development - there is no point to this film (other than for it being a sequel to a classic intended to, ironically, make lots of money and out of people's expense). And to add insult-to-injury, and it must be pointed, is the dreadful (dreadful!) use of editing/graphics that you'd normally only find accustomed to kids TV shows - including, in particular, a sequence where LaBeouf is sitting in a car and has a thought of previous goings-on, in which a little bubble suddenly pops up to the side of his head, showing us what he is thinking. Er..., what?? In fact, the way the whole film is shot is as if a cheap American cop drama - there's no richness to the picture; no artistic imprint or style. Completely void, which is in direct contrast to the brilliance of the original. Some of the selected music in the film, also, is pathetic, adding nothing whatsoever (it actually seems more suited to an episode of Sex & the City), and the characters, themselves, are just plain uninteresting and unrealistic (to not give it away, but the Carey Mulligan character has an inheritance to an exceedingly high amount of money, ridiculously high, in a Swiss bank-account, which she duly chooses to ignore - yeah, right... I guess that's being 'edgy').Read more ›
