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.

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.

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.

[Oliver] Stone uses a lot of visual effects to give some energy to a very conventional story...

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.

Advances the interesting proposition that Wall Street has become so corrupt that Gordon Gekko now seems like a hero compared to the rest of these slime balls.

It may be more than two decades since Michael Douglas won an Oscar as scheming Wall Street trader Gordon Gekko, but the character's mantra of "Greed is good" rings as loud as ever.

We're left with a solid if predictable drama and a whole lot of very sharp suits and New York loft apartments to envy.

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

After about three scenes it just sounds like blah-blah-blah, and yet the screenwriters actually create a sense of drama from this impenetrable gobbledygook.

There is a lot of good material, but LaBeouf nearly sinks it and we could use much more of the old Gekko brimstone.

But whatever its critical frailties, Money Never Sleeps is again so relevant to current economics that you simply can't ignore it.

Stone assembles a competent, affectionate homage to the 1987 incarnation.

Older, wiser, and as slippery as ever, Douglas doesn't miss a trick in completing the resurrection of one of cinema's most glorious bastards.

Watchable drama enlivened by strong direction and superb performances from an excellent cast, but it's often predictable and struggles under the weight of too much plot, which ultimately drags it out to about 20 minutes longer than it ought to be.
