Movie Reviews

Caricature of the Go-Go 1980s
R. Bailin | 09/20/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It's pretty difficult to make the manipulation of stock prices interesting in a feature length movie, but Stone kind of pulls it off. Charlie Sheen was mis-cast in the title role. I liked Hal Holbrook's brief contributions as the worldly, elder stock broker. Some of his lines are gems: "The thing about money is that it makes you do things you don't want to do." "You can't get a little bit pregnant, son." "I don't know where you get your information from son, but I don't like it." "Man looks in the mirror. There's nothing staring back at him except the abyss. That's when man finds his character."

Daryl Hannah's a good-looking blonde, but can't act her way out of a paper bag. Martin Sheen is convincing as the left-leaning union leader and father. Sean Young is over-the-top awful as Gordon Gekko's spoiled, phony wife.

Not a bad movie and worth seeing.

"Terrific 80's Drama!"
Gregorypwilson | Syracuse, NY USA | 09/21/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Michael Douglas, Charlie Sheen, Martin Sheen and Daryl Hannah
star in Oliver Stone's 1987 drama. A stockbroker tries to be like
his tycoon idol. Michael's great in this and it's definitely one of
his best films. This 2-disc anniversary edition has nice picture
and sound plus neat extras. Get this terrific 80's drama."
The REAL Wall Street
Karen E. Maleske | Dayton, OH | 09/28/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Stunning and realistic performances by Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen. It's the kind of film that makes you want to see the young kid win. However, he finds out what really goes on in the big world of high finance and the end is outstanding. It will keep you watching to see what happens next.....definately not a dull movie, and not the kind of "world" I would want to be intmately involved in."
