Summary: I have mentioned before that director Oliver Stone seriously thought about retiring after Natural Born Killers. That movie took so much out of him (and I think the previous JFK did also in the aftermath of that film), that he said: "I don't think I have another one in me".
Summary: This movie falls short, for the simple reason that there was no character that actually one could feel sympathy or affinity for. The plot was facile. The ending was the worst part of the movie and was a terrible let down. This movie took the easy way out and left the audience unsatisfied.
Summary: When I heard that Stone was filming a sequel to Wall Street, and that the subject matter would be based around the collapse of Lehmans and Bear Stearns, I was very excited indeed. What an excellent opportunity for a tense, clever financial melodrama, just like the original.
Summary: The first twenty minutes were very promising.Then it got boring. Extremely boring.There just isn't any plot.Gekko getting together with his daughter maybe was touching for a moment.But the girl crying all the time got on my nerves.She is supposed to be an adult.
Summary: Sequels rarely come out of a comparison looking good - and this one's no exception. The original Wall Street was a classic on several planes, but "Never Sleeps" just isn't. Douglas, as usual, gives a strong and perceptive performance: he is backed up by the rest of the cast.
Summary: 3/4 into this film make you smile due to the Talking Heads, Geeko-Bud Fox (why not change the name the second time around?) moment and 90s reminiscence. But... the closing scene and overall end is a tremendous let down. Why o why does Stone do this?
Summary: This movie was awful. First off the actual storyline has major problems - 1 full of cliches, 2 totally predictable, 3 unnecessary confusion. Overall just very poor writing. Inexcusable given the number of awesome real life storylines in the financial crisis that could have been just ripped off and...
Summary: The Wall Street Money Never Sleep had a great premise at the beginning - return of great characters from the original and very interesting subject matter (worst financial and economical crisis since the World War II).
Summary: About Goldman Sachs, journalist Matt Taibbi wrote, "The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.
