Lazy directing on the behalf of Oliver Stone, the miscasting of Shia LaBeouf and an often incomprehensible plot turn this film into a total mess.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

The bottom line on "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" is that it is sprinkled with inspired scenes, but is never able to fully engage the viewer because of its meandering and unfocused storylines.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

As a comment on the recession it's a spineless failure, but as a piece of entertaining fluff it does its job well.

Maybe Stone's growth as a filmmaker mirrors that of Gordon's as a person; having had time to calm down a bit over the years, he seems to have settled into a more relaxed state.

In the midst of all the incomprehensible money-babble, there are still pit stops of entertainment.

There really is a lot to like about Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps but ultimately, like the trader's they're chronicling, the filmmakers are unable to resist the impulse to have their cake and eat it too.

Those who see [Gordon Gekko] as an antihero worthy of redemption might find this kinder, gentler Wall Street worth sitting through.

Stone has missed the moment with his belated sequel ... Instead of being ahead of the game, he's now lagging behind [and] he's made a movie that already seems out of date.
January 2, 2011
A decidedly inferior sequel.

Though the carpe diem theme comes as something of a surprise, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps makes its political points, with 'moral hazard'—the dark side of second chances—the film’s punny refrain.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Maybe "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" doesn't pack the punch of the original because there's no revelation.

[Oliver] Stone uses a lot of visual effects to give some energy to a very conventional story...
December 6, 2010
Lacks the sting of recent documentaries on Wall Street's sanguine hands

Gordon Gekko is back, but he's not as powerful a force as he once was.

While the film looks as sharp as a three piece pinstripe from Bloomingdales, featuring some nice character-driven moments, its bubble bursts in an ending that feels compromised.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
October 22, 2010
...lest you miss the sledgehammer subtext of Stone's sequel, there are plenty of shots of bubbles blowing through the sky.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is a flashy, timely, and mostly engaging drama, but it's really nothing without Michael Douglas, who drags Gordon Gekko out of the 'Eighties Villains Hall of Fame' for a victory lap.

Michael Douglas does what he can.

A lumbering beast that's stately where it should be nimble. Best stick with the original film.

Gekko's resurrection is disappointing. This isn't a savage satire on corrupt business practices. No. It's a relationship drama.
