Boring and very disappointing. I expected much more with such a talented cast and director. For me, this film fails in just about every respect and has absolutely none of the excitement and drama of the original Wall Street. I thought the plot was dull and plodding and the film staggered to a predictable conclusion. Michael Douglas didn't do his best work in the movie and that could partly be because he was feeling the effects of the cancer he is battling so he has a good excuse... but what's Oliver Stone's excuse for directing what, in my opinion, is at best a B movie? On the plus side the scenery and New York setting did add what little charm this film had. Too bad the script was formulaic and not worthy of the talent that produced and directed it.
