Synopsis


Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
Ambitious young investment banker Jacob Moore (Shia LaBeouf) discovers that greed is still the name of the game when he forges a fragile alliance with onetime Wall Street hotshot Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) shortly after Gekko is released from prison. Having served eight years for securities fraud, money laundering, and racketeering, Gekko emerges from prison to find that his daughter, Winnie (Carey Mulligan), prefers to remain estranged, and that his former Wall Street cohorts are still raking in the cash. Flash-forward to 2008, and Winnie is dating a proprietary trader named Jake Moore (LaBeouf), who expresses a passion for green energy while working for his mentor Louis Zabel (Frank Langella), of Keller Zabel Investments. Despite heading up one of the most prominent investment firms in the country, Louis Zabel is forced to personally fight for the future of Keller Zabel before the Federal Reserve after the company's stock takes a hit due to persistent rumors that it's being dragged down by debt. Denied a bailout from the government, Keller Zabel soon falls victim to a hostile takeover lead by powerful investment bank partner Bretton James (Josh Brolin), of Churchill Schwartz. His job on the line and his mentor out of the picture, Jake discovers that Gordon Gekko is out promoting his new book "Is Greed Good?" and decides to attend a lecture being given by the author at Fordham University. According to Gekko, greed is now sanctioned by the government, and the U.S. economy is on the verge of collapse as a direct result of leveraged debt and wild conjecture. When Jake goes behind Winnie's back to try and repair her relationship with her father, Gekko reveals his compelling theories on the likely reasons for Zabel's downfall. Later, as Jake begins plotting to avenge his mentor, Gekko starts to reveal his true colors. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    This was very good. I think this is better than the original. It picks up with Michael Douglas being released from jail after serving 8 years behind bars. He has a daughter who is dating Shia LaBeouf ( a wall street stockbroker). Of course Michael Douglas's character left his daughter millions of dollars that he tries to get his hands on but is it for good or bad? Shia and Josh Brolin are the new Douglas and Charlie Sheen characters who are conflicting over power and money of course. I don't want to say to much to give away the movie. Charlie Sheen even has a cameo in this new movie. It has a great plot and pretty good acting as well. This was a sequel that was long overdue. Very good movie.

    3.5 to 4 stars Oliver Stone's sequel pays homage to the original Wall Street and nails the Collapse of Wall Street in 2008 due to the mortgage meltdown. Michael Douglas is back as Gekko who teams up with his son-in-law (Shia LaBeouf) to get $ revenge. LaBeouf seems miscast but overall a pretty good follow up movie. Blu-ray 2.40:1 aspect ratio, Extra features: Commentary by Director Oliver Stone, A Conversation with Oliver Stone and the Cast of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, Money, Money, Money: The Rise and Fall of Wall Street, Deleted and Extended Scenes

    Although this sequel to Wall Street is not 5 star entertainment like the original, I give it 3.5+ stars. Oliver Stone appears to get the details of the recent Wall Street fall correct, but this movie lacks some of the originals' punch. While paying homage to the first and keeping some of the original cast, like Michael Douglas who gives his usual great performance, I feel that Shia LaBeouf is miscast as the son in law. Also, Josh Brolin is very good as the sleaze bag Investment Banker. Blu-ray in 2.40:1 format plus many extras.

    Good flick, but too long for me.. there were parts that "could" have been cut out. Since we saw 1st movie, we could relate to story line.. not sure IF you never saw 1st movie how you would rate this. Happy ending anyhow Of course the DVD itself performed fine.. not scratches on DVD or freezes while playing.

    I got this movie, for my husband, so he would have both Wallstreet movies. Although it is not classic, like the original, and my husband said it was not as good, as the first, he still enjoyed it enough to own it for our video library.

    Wall Street Money Never Sleeps is a good follow up to the original Wall Street. If you're put off by Shia LaBeouf, don't worry about it as he does well in this movie. Michael Douglas is excellent per usual.

    As I said above, the poor acting and not-so-great ending of this movie made it not as much fun to watch. Although, decent story with convincing elements.

    I liked the first one much better. It had some laughs in it. This one got too political. It show only one side and I like movies that express both sides.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
