Now out of prison but still disgraced by his peers, Gordon Gekko works his future son-in-law, an idealistic stock broker, when he sees an opportunity to take down a Wall Street enemy and rebuild his empire.
As the global economy teeters on the brink of disaster, a young Wall Street trader partners with disgraced former Wall Street corporate raider Gordon Gekko on a two-tiered mission: To alert the financial community to the coming doom, and to find out who was responsible for the death of the young trader's mentor.Written by
The first Oliver Stone film to appear at Cannes. Stone's earlier films Natural Born Killers (1994) and U Turn (1997) had been rejected. After screening the film at Cannes, Stone responded to the reception by making some changes to the ending. 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.

Michael Douglas's performance was great. But he usually delivers solid performances. Beyond that, the acting in this movie was not great. I don't understand why Shia LaBeouf and the Carrie Mulligan were cast in the movie at all - they seem so weak and lacked even an iota of glamor. Susan Sarandon's character seemed unnecessary. The movie did have some funny lines. I liked the Ducatis and some of the wardrobe design. The cinematography was excellent - especially the racing scenes with the Ducatis! However, overall this movie was nowhere near as good as the original. The ending of this movie was very abrupt. Overall, it was a complete letdown.
