Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Rated PG-13 130 minutes 2010

The once-fearless Oliver Stone seems a little scared of himself and his subject in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Rather than shredding those responsible for the financial crisis of 2008, he creates convoluted arguments about the causes and possible solutions—and tries to give us a kinder, gentler Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas). I need a kinder, gentler Gordon Gekko like I need a Halloween movie in which Michael Myers gives candy and smiles to teenagers rather than disemboweling them. The film picks up Gekko’s story after he gets out of jail and writes a book. He meets his future son-in-law (Shia LaBeouf) and tries to get back into the life of his daughter (Carey Mulligan) through him. Douglas is good in the role, but the material he is given lets him down.
