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.

Charleston City Paper Gordon Gekko returns in Oliver Stone's sequel to Wall Street How do you make a sequel to the strutting, chest-beating capitalism thrill ride of Oliver Stone's 1987 Wall Street in post-bailout America? Very carefully. In keeping with our more humbled, cautionary times, the operative word in the Gordon Gekko sequel Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is repent, repent, repent. The human race, Stone's sequel suggests, has taken a step backwards as of late, its evolutionary tendencies morphing into destructive ones as we lose sight of the important (i.e. non-monetary) things in life. by Felicia Feaster 09/22/2010
