Wall Street money never sleeps WTF?

First i would like to say sorry, i know this film is not currently in the cinema or indeed just released on DVD or even on rental, i watched this movie last night on Sky TV, i needed a break from planet of the apes movies.

Anyway i have quite fond memories of Wall Street, very 80's and a pretty good movie, which considering its cast was always a surprise.....

But i have to say what the fuck was Oliver stone thinking when he was making the sequel????Mr Stone has written,directed or produced some of my favourite movies, but i was left scratching my head with this one, the movie just failed at everything and its was boring as hell, the plot was none existent,other than to preach about the world economic collapse, it was almost impossible to empathise with any of the characters,josh brolin was supposed to be the "villain" but never really pulled it off,Gekko should have been the focus of the story and his manipulations of Jake Moore(shia) should have been far more prominent and with more dire consequences.

It was all a bit Meh!

I never made it through the whole thing.

It seemed like the sort of money spinning sequel you expect the studio to throw to a newbie crew when they have the rights to the property but can't convince the director to do another film.

Oliver Stone hasn't directed anything amazing for a while now, so I guess this was a shot at recapturing the glory of the past, but instead it just tarnishes the original.

It was painful to watch, the entire movie amounted to nothing.

Original Wall Street still is really great, sequel left me utterly disappointed.
