    Synopsis


    Wall Street
    "Greed is Good." This is the credo of the aptly named Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), the antihero of Oliver Stone's Wall Street. Gekko, a high-rolling corporate raider, is idolized by young-and-hungry broker Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen). Inveigling himself into Gekko's inner circle, Fox quickly learns to rape, murder and bury his sense of ethics. Only when Gekko's wheeling and dealing causes a near-tragedy on a personal level does Fox "reform"-though his means of destroying Gekko are every bit as underhanded as his previous activities on the trading floor. Director Stone, who cowrote Wall Street with Stanley Weiser, has claimed that the film was prompted by the callous treatment afforded his stockbroker father after 50 years in the business; this may be why the film's most compelling scenes are those between Bud Fox and his airline mechanic father (played by Charlie Sheen's real-life dad Martin). Ironically, Wall Street was released just before the October, 1987 stock market crash. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    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

      Pretty good flick

      If you're interested in the subject matter of stocks, trading, money, Wall Street, hedge funds, etc. then it's an interesting movie. Gekko's daughter though is very emotional and often seen shedding tears, ... so that's a turnoff. Michael Douglas is playing his role as Gordon Gekko well and it suits him. Much more could have been put into the flick, meaning the story could have been fleshed out a bit more, but it's okay the way it is. The problem is that the subject matter is quickly dated in our world of finance and today other things are making big bucks like blockchains, cryptocurrencies (like. e.g. Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, etc.) and so the financial crisis of 2008/09 which is addressed in this movie, is kind of history and nobody really wants to look back at it. The original "Wall Street" might be more interesting as it shows how the business worked back in the 80's and in fact somehow not too much has changed, ... so interested "traders" may learn from that original flick, but not so much from the new "Wall Street: Money never Sleeps" movie. If you just want to be entertained and you're not interested in the subject matter, it's probably a boring flick and you might be disappointed. Good thing though, this Blu-ray package contains both movies, each on a Blu-ray disc and for the cost of $5 or so this is a pretty good deal, and well worth it to add to any Blu-ray/DVD collection.

      "Greed is good....."

      In this case, buying the blu-ray 2-pack of actor Michael Douglas' original and sequel to "The Wolf of Wall Street" in one offering, at Best Buy's great price, was my chance to experience that, sometimes, greed is good...for my collection and my wallet. Enjoy this fictional story and inside look at a fictional stock market and its fictional machinations where it is purported, by the main protagonist, that "Greed is good..." and how it can be used as a motivator to separate potential investors from their money. Oliver Stone's directing artfully leads us through this fictional investment world gone wild. Great story and characterizations by Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen in the original and as good a cast of characters supporting Michael Douglas in the sequel.

      For anyone who's a fan of Oliver Stone's take on Wall Street. This is a must have combo of both the original and sequel. The first movie deals with the original 80's hey days of insider trading and leverage buy-outs. The seconds deals with the subject of toxic debts and the pre-cursor to the real estate bubble. Both contain the hearth and emotions of those affected by these so - called financial gurus who only cares nothing other than money. Great addition to those who are interested in Wall Street.

      I thought the sequel was just as good as the first movie. I enjoyed both movies, and it was a plus that Wall Street was released in Blu-ray. My only complaint would be that digital copies of the movies were not included like other sets. VUDU sells digital copies of both movies as a bundle.

      The first disc takes place in Wall Street in the 80s, while the sequel is ~25 years later. Greed, corruption, family, and drama are the highlights of this film. Great quality discs and well worth the price for 2 movies!
