Wall Street gives us a whirlwind tour of instant Manhattan wealth - one that catches our interest, but doesn't satisfy our need to understand what makes these people tick.

Stone's most impressive achievement in this film is to allow all the financial wheeling and dealing to seem complicated and convincing, and yet always have it make sense.

In Wall Street...you will see the evil, capitalistic impulses of man. Towards the end, you will see the self-righteous impulses of liberal finger-waggers. It's hard to tell which is worse.

With its posturing politics and cardboard characterizations, Wall Street is not up to [Oliver Stone's] past standards.

'Greed is good... greed works,' Gekko intones famously in Wall Street, and it was meant to be a shocking pronouncement at the time. That's the attitude that feels old-fashioned now.

A great film worth seeing, not only for the message it delivers, but also for the smoothness of it that makes it entertaining.

Director/co-writer Stone, with [Michael] Douglas at the epicenter, erects an overdone behemoth of a movie that, like Boesky himself, is an ageless -- and, at times, clichéd -- cautionary tale.

Wall Street was inspired by Stone's personal history...It is a pity his father didn't tell him a more interesting and original story he could adapt into a film.

Wall Street, in large part due to the timing of its release, became more than just a movie. It became a declaration of the moral bankruptcy infiltrating elements of society, and Gekko's words were an ode to that philosophy.
