Consensus: It's more entertaining than many sequels, but with Oliver Stone directing, a terrific cast, and a timely storyline that picks up where the original left off, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps should be better.

The old Gordon Gekko would have torn this movie apart with his gleaming teeth, while today?s Gekko seems content just to nibble on the edges.

Great to see Douglas back in the role that won him an Oscar. But even when he's offscreen, he's a bigger presence than LaBeouf.

We Got This Covered

Lazy directing on the behalf of Oliver Stone, the miscasting of Shia LaBeouf and an often incomprehensible plot turn this film into a total mess.

Time Out

This is a pulp novelisation of the banking crisis and its pleas for relevance ring hollow.

Stone used to know in his gut that a sermon belongs in the pulpit, not the multiplex. No more.

The bottom line on "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" is that it is sprinkled with inspired scenes, but is never able to fully engage the viewer because of its meandering and unfocused storylines.

There are times when iconic characters should be left alone to bask in the glory of a single appearance and, unfortunately, that's the case with Gordon Gekko.

Stone handles the financial stuff quite well.

As a comment on the recession it's a spineless failure, but as a piece of entertaining fluff it does its job well.
