Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Wall Street isn't a movie to make one think. It simply confirms what we all know we should think, while giving us a tantalizing, Sidney Sheldon-like peek into the boardrooms and bedrooms of the rich and powerful. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Stone's most impressive achievement in this film is to allow all the financial wheeling and dealing to seem complicated and convincing, and yet always have it make sense. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Wall Street, in large part due to the timing of its release, became more than just a movie. It became a declaration of the moral bankruptcy infiltrating elements of society, and Gekko's words were an ode to that philosophy. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Sep 14, 2010

Fresh: All the performances are excellent with the emotional highlights including the father/son emotional angst between Sheen and his real life father Martin Sheen. – Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile, Sep 14, 2010

Entertaining

As an investor, I thought Oliver Stone did a good job trying to make it palatable to non-investors, while not making people who understand the trading side of things cringe too much. Toss in some 1980's charm, and it's very enjoyable. It's a cheesy film, sure, but definitely worth a look for those who think they'd appreciate it. The quote, though, is "Greed, for lack of a better word, is good." There is an important subtlety that seems to be tossed out, but reading the previous reviews, I can't help but think someone from 20th Century Fox is trying to drum up interest in the sequel. Speaking of which, what a shame they cast the kid from "Transformers", but it's Show Business, not Show High-quality-film-making.

Great film

A film for people who hate and love the worst in everyone. "Greed is good". People in the business say that a great film will leave you with a line of dialogue you will never forget. If they are right, Wall Street Strikes gold. The sets are amazing. Wardrobe is spot on. The cast is a dream team.

"Greed is good, now it seems thats its legal", will Gekko strike again with MS:Money Never Sleeps? ( Oliver Stone is directing the sequel )

Great, But Charlie...

It's a great movie, but Charlie Sheen is just a bad actor--very very bad.
