Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Critics Consensus

It's more entertaining than many sequels, but with Oliver Stone directing, a terrific cast, and a timely storyline that picks up where the original left off, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps should be better.

Movie Info

Following a long prison term for insider trading, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) finds himself on the outside looking in at a world he once commanded. Ostensibly hoping to repair his broken relationship with his daughter, Gekko forges an alliance with her fiance, Jake (Shia LaBeouf). Although Jake comes to view Gordon as a father figure, he learns the hard way that Gekko is still a master manipulator who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals.

  • The old Gordon Gekko would have torn this movie apart with his gleaming teeth, while today’s Gekko seems content just to nibble on the edges.

  • A complete mish-mash, less bonfire than oven-lighter, a wasted opportunity...

  • Stone swaps fury for fun. But it sure beats another Fidel Castro interview.

    October 7, 2010 | Rating: 3/5
  • This is a pulp novelisation of the banking crisis and its pleas for relevance ring hollow.

  • There are times when iconic characters should be left alone to bask in the glory of a single appearance and, unfortunately, that's the case with Gordon Gekko.

  • Great to see Douglas back in the role that won him an Oscar. But even when he's offscreen, he's a bigger presence than LaBeouf.

Audience Reviews for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

    Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is Oliver Stone's sequel to his 1987 film Wall Street. I quite enjoyed the original, and I thought it was a surprising effort from Oliver Stone. With this follow-up, He crafts a decent film that could have been much better, and in the end, it leaves a lot to be desired. This sequel is somewhat entertaining, but it could have been much better. Luckily for Stone, he assembles a colorful cast of actors that keeps this so-so sequel afloat. The film had so much potential in being so much more, but it ends up falling flat. As a whole, it's decent, but it lacks the power of the original. Michael Douglas is very good here as usual, and his screen presence is really what kept me involved in the film. Wall Street Money Never Sleeps is not a good sequel, but it is somewhat entertaining, just don't expect anything truly remarkable. Oliver Stone seems to navigate sketchy territory with this one, and it feels like he is trying too hard at outdoing his original film. The idea of creating a sequel to Wall Street was interesting, but the end result is somewhat lacking even though it's entertaining to some degree. I still think it could have been better, and the film's potential is there, but is underdeveloped. Michael Douglas is the best part about the film, however Shia LaBeouf lacks in screen presence and he's not convincing in his performance. Oliver Stone focuses his sequel on the recent Crash, but he doesn't elaborate on it, considering that it's one of the key aspects of the time where the story is set. Fans of the first may be disappointed with this one and with good reason. This is a decent film, and nothing more. The plot could have been rewritten and more detailed, but it just fails to truly be entertaining and interesting in the long run.

    I was really bored watching this. I found it hard to pay attention to what was going on. The movie mainly gets 2 and half stars from me, because the cast was amazing, but that's all it really has going for it. I just don't think I can even give this a proper review.

    Oh, Oliver Stone. When are you gonna learn how to edit?! Again, this movie is far too long. And far too constructed. Some promising bits can't cover the fact that this is a snoozefest. And really, poor Shia LaBeouf, being made to act with so many great actors that make him pale badly in comparison. Skip this. Watch the first movie. That was filmed when Oliver Stone still knew how to narrate a story.

    Shia is only thing that makes it interesting.
