Stone's attack on the excesses of the Me Decade could easily be dubbed Mr. Smith Goes to Wall Street.

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.

The sensibility of this movie is so adolescent that it's hard to take it as seriously as the filmmakers intend us to.

Watching Oliver Stone's Wall Street is about as wordy and dreary as reading the financial papers accounts of the rise and fall of an Ivan Boesky-type arbitrageur.

Dramatically inept, the film also muddles its na´ve moralising.

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.

For a motion picture that, at the time of shooting, was intended to be relatively hip and cutting-edge, it is now so laughably outdated it almost feels like science-fiction.

...blustery and unsophisticated, like many of the movies of Oliver Stone.

With its posturing politics and cardboard characterizations, Wall Street is not up to [Oliver Stone's] past standards.
May 20, 2003
Wall Street isn't a movie to make one think. It simply confirms what we all know we should think, while giving us a tantalizing, Sidney Sheldon-like peek into the boardrooms and bedrooms of the rich and powerful.

Like the rest of Stone's oeuvre, it's about as subtle as a sledgehammer. But his filmmaking style is like heavy metal: When he hits the right chords, nobody plays with as much power or brash energy.

The conflict may be familiar, but Stone brings the mystery of Wall Street's heros and villains, its big-stakes players and two-bit salesmen into sharp focus. It's a look that is both exhilarating and astounding.

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.

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.

If it's possible to have dialogue that's too stunning for the film's own good, that's the case with "Wall Street."
