Summary: Your typical "how much excess can we cram into one sitting" type film. The movie is all about non stop drug use, cursing, theft and a criminal lifestyle purportedly portraying that of the Wall Street stockbrokers during the 80's.
Summary: The Wolf of Wall Street was an enjoyable movie. Martin Scorsese is probably my favorite director of all-time. Leonardo DiCaprio gives a powerhouse performance as Jordan Belfort. I did notice the film started to drag in the middle. overall I give The Wolf of Wall Street A-.
Excerpt: Stockbroker Jordan Belfort climbs to the top of the financial tree with little regard for ethics or law in this true life story of the real face of the "American Dream".

Summary: Not sure I can condone the message the movie sends - excess, money, debauchery, drugs - it's not exactly a shining example of humanity - but damned if I wasn't entertained. The characters, though despicable, truly are great to watch - with DiCaprio and especially Jonah Hill turning in fantastic...
Excerpt: A dark comedy on Wall Street players instead of the usual gangsters. It starts of slow then picks up in the middle and just fizzles towards the end. Jordan Belfort's character reminded me of Tony Montana from Scarface. Everything in excess and coupled with a funny right hand man.
Summary: I'm still not sure whether I like this movie or not, it was just so ridiculous, but I guess that was the point...It did make me laugh quite a few times but the main characters are so unlikable that by the end of it you just want to see them all get put in jail.
Excerpt: The Wolf of Wall Street doesn't beat around the bush. It really doesn't. If there is one thing I hate in a biopic, it's when the director or production team choose sides with the main character, whether it be a good or bad or normal one or whatever.
Excerpt: If Leonardo DiCaprio does not a Oscar for he's role in this movie then they is going to be a rant. The film is about a Wall Street stockbroker lives the high life with his likewise wealthy buddies - but the net is closing in around him.
Excerpt: 'The Wolf of Wall Street' is the most audaciously 'adult' centric film of the year. Scorsese delivers terrific directing, as always, which immerses you in the moment with the characters on screen. However, my time spent with these characters became monotonous with progression.
