Did You Know?


Javier Bardem was the studio's favorite for the role of the villain. However, he turned the role down to star in Biutiful (2010), and so Josh Brolin was cast. Brolin previously starred in Oliver Stone's film W. (2008). See more »


In a scene where Gordon Gekko and Jake Moore are riding in a cab, it shows the cab driving for quite a long time before showing the meter, which only reads $2.90. Given that New York cab meters start at $2.50 and would increase to $2.90 after only 1/5 of a mile, it is apparent that the meter was either not really running or shot at a different time in the cab ride than was shown in the movie.

Highs and Lows, It's All Wall Street
28 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the original Wall Street (1987) director Oliver Stone presented a dire warning for Wall Street brokers everywhere. It came at a time when the financial bubble was close to bursting, and a healthy dose of Oliver Stone's traditionally moral spinning plots seemed both relevant and necessary. While practically all sequels are relevant, very few can claim to be necessary, and it's in the majority that Money Never Sleeps unfortunately falls.

On paper it's a thriller as cold as cash and as calculating as the most experienced of any of Wall Street's real brokers, with Michael Douglas's Gekko as good as it gets to the definitive anti-hero of the financial age. Gekko is just as complicated and compelling as when we left him, all the way back in 1987.

It's a shame then that his vehicle this time round is a slow and derivative script with believability issues uncharacteristic of the usually well-researched Stone. In revisiting Wall Street, Stone seemingly attempts the impossible task of fully comprehending it. It leaves us with a baggy, unbalanced yet ambitious film that spikes at some occasional highs, and bottoms out at some bankrupt lows.
