The Spanish painter Goya's painting "Saturno devorando a un hijo (Saturn devouring his son)" is actually in Museo del Prado, in Madrid, with the rest of the 13 Goya's "Black Paintings". In the movie, Bretton says that there are 14 paintings in El Prado and this is in his office. See more »
In the final scene, on the roof top terrace, there are 'photos' being taken. Briefly an 'in-camera' view pops up and displays the ISO as 3200. In daylight you would normally be at roughly ISO 200, ISO 3200 would only be used in the absolute darkest situations. The resulting image would've been overexposed. ISO refers to the sensitivity of the camera's sensor to pick up light - the higher the number, the more light it lets in. See more »

I'm afraid I have to add my voice to the others who have made negative comments on this film. I finally got to see it on HBO and just barely got through it. An absolutely dreadful sequel.
The story should have picked up where the first left off. I actually felt sorry for Bud Fox at the end as he walked into prison. Now I find out that everything just went swimmingly and he's now a multi millionaire after selling the airline that was so much a focus of the original story. A huge insult to all of us and an embarrassment to Charlie Sheen, as if he needed another one, in a cameo that had no point other than to wreck the character from the first Wall Street.
Don't like any of the actors here. Really miss Martin Sheen who always adds something in whatever he is in. Have no interest in the main characters this time around and I agree that Michael Douglas looks as if he can't stay awake and I don't blame him.
Sequels are virtually never any good. Once you catch lightning in a bottle, you don't go out and stand in a field in a rainstorm hoping you can do it again without getting electrocuted. Oliver Stone did himself and his reputation nothing but harm in this pointless, witless and uninteresting tale.
