Sterile film making at its worst
5 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Of course i did not watch this hoping for a retread of the original. What would be the point of that? But all you are left with after watching this is two hours and thirteen minutes of further evidence for the terminal decline of Oliver Stones career.

The current banking/financial crisis forms the backdrop for Money Never Sleeps but is barely explored. The story is lumbered with relationship issues centred around Gekko's daughter which only serve to slow the film down and dissipate what little interest the movie generates.

Josh Brolin is served up as the villain but when the only victims of the villain shown on screen are fellow members of the financial services industry this hardly generates much in the way of sympathy. Stone also adds into the mix the 21st century tee shirts of political correctness and environmental issues. Yawn. As all the leading actors are horribly miscast contributing bland performances it's left to Michael Douglas to save the day. Alas an older and wiser Gekko is not what i particularly wanted to see and although he pulls off a sly trick three quarters of the way through Stone bottles it with the redemptive ending.

So in comparison, the original Wall Street was an engrossing rags to riches to rags morality play with characters you cared for including an unintentional anti hero. Money never sleeps is a corporate, empty, superficial snooze fest from a once great, but no longer, director.
