A real dud that should be avoid even if you loved the first Wall Street.

This sequel must have looked great on paper:
Douglas and Stone returning for the long awaited sequel to Wall Street!
New York City locations and a very timely premise( "Greed is not only good, nowdays it's
legal!") Well, unfortunately, Oliver Stone must have fallen asleep somewhere during the
directing as this one falls short of anything great. We loved the first one with a young Charlie Sheen and his real-life famous Daddy, Martin Sheen. Do we care about Shia LaBeouf? Not really. Do we end up caring about his mousy, crybaby girlfriend? No way. The only interesting characters are Gekko, Frank Langella's stressed out broker,and the younger version of Gekko played to the hilt by Josh Brolin. The story begins with a very cool opening with Gekko getting out of prison but it doesn't pick up any steam or energy after that. The ending is lame and so is Stone's cameo as a 'stockbroker'...Do yourself a favor and go retro and trade for the original which is still an 80's classic.

Excellent movie. Just like I remember it. There are wolves out there. Money is a game to many people. Nice to know hearts can come into play.
