Story about a stock broker who wants desperately to learn how to be a big name player on Wall Street. One of the better movies Oliver Stone has made. It's a really dumb story with little depth, but enjoyable anyway.

Wall Street gives us an inside look at how sharks like Gordon Gekko just devour anything and anyone in his way. Michael Douglas does a fantastic job playing Gordon Gekko. Charlie Sheen and Martin Sheen are very good as well. Wall Street can get very dramatic at times but doesn't seem to be able to keep you at the edge of your seat. Also I believe Oliver Stone could of gone 15 mins shorter. Nonetheless still a very good movie.

The structure of Wall Street is one seen before, hitting all the plot points and ending in a cliche manner. Was told well and had terrific acting from Martin and Charlie Cheen along with Michael Douglas. The acting is what really sold the film, helped it along past the standard rise and fall story, the conclusion sunk this below a 8/10 rating though.

"Wall street power and greed" is a film about the money and the degradation it brings, with an always pessimistic view of money, Oliver Stone tries to show us the capacity of corruption of the human being in exchange for his materialism , Except that Stone is extremely clichéd and caricature in his message. With a well-worked script that subtly shows the change of the secondary characters due to the enrichment of our protagonist, and leaves loose points in its plot by ignoring the illicit enrichment without showing how the money was washed or something of the kind, anyway The story of Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen), an ambitious stockbroker in the 1980s who engages in a scheme of speculation and illegal information gathering for self-enrichment and his cupbearer Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas). The moral of the film is precisely to talk about the degradation and well of materialism, and Oliver Stone who is known for making documentaries of socialist character and for always his severe criticisms of capitalism, his film can be caricato and loaded with ideology, Stone is a great director and managed to get his message across, albeit weak. Technically, film is good, has a spectacular montage and a great mix of sound, a color palette with grayer tones, typical of the 80s and a soundtrack full of Jazz that composes well the scenes. In terms of performances we have no highlights , All fulfill their function and finished, we do not have three-dimensional performances, exaggerated and not very contained, but worth a compliment to Martin Sheen who is great as a supporting. At the end of the day we have a great movie, which fulfills its role, and is closer to impress than to disappoint.

Wall Street serves primarily as a proof that even great filmmakers like Oliver Stone can stumble from time to time, delivering a boring and formulaic financial thriller with weak character development.

It's a morality tale for a very basic moral, but the movie does it so well, you forget about that. Charlie Sheen delivers what is probably his best performance (he delivers in the scene of his arrest). Martin Sheen gives a great performance as a down to earth, morally upright, and unpolished father. The scene in the elevator is tense. Michael Douglas captures a deserved Best Actor Oscar for his performance as a quick talking, ruthless, entrepreneur. His voice, tone, piercing eyes, and physicality are perfect for the role he put so much work in to. The movie could have been a bit faster paced and the sound track could have had less bad eighties music, but overall this is an entertaining movie with great performances and memorable scenes. Wall Street, for lack of a better title, is good.

With Michael Douglas in a superb and unforgettable performance as the voracious shark Gordon Gekko, this is an excellent film that relies on an elegant dialogue to tell us a fascinating story about man's greedy desire to score more and more in the stock market game of power.

Wall Street manages to have great acting and a good look on Wall Street in the 80s, as how corporate greed is good.

Oliver Stone's dense portrait of Wall Street broking proves little has changed in the ways of the yuppie scum since its release in the 1980s.
