What a dreary film and what a disappointment. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps has no plot, weak characters, and it takes forever for the storyline to start. Michael Douglas has a completely unconvincing role which is not worthy of him at all.
It is so disappointing after the original Wall Street, which had a fast-paced plot, a great villain in Gordon Gekko, and some deeply memorable lines. It was also a big mistake to watch it with Blog daughter who has no interest in business or money, and was yawning within the first twenty minutes.
You know immediately who the bad guys are – they are the ones with investments in “old energy,” oil and coal – as distinct from the angelic guys pushing “fusion.” It was one cliché after the other, with the plot hinging on convincing the important investors who were of course Chinese. Give this one a miss.
