Greed is Good. --Gordon Gekko
A team of commandos, on a mission in a central american jungle, find themselves hunted by an extra-terrestrial warrior.

"As with Platoon, Stone captures the horrific essence of an environment...Dazzling filmmaking.  Angie Errigo, Empire
"...[Sheen's] perfect as a greenhorn yuppie playing with the big guns. But the performance medal has to go to Douglas.  Desson Howe, Washington Post
"It's slick, melodramatic, even inherently trashy - but a blue-chip moviegoer investment.  Mike Clark, USA Today

Editor's Note
Oliver Stone opened fire on the greed decade of the 1980s with this morality tale set on Wall Street. It stars Charlie Sheen as Bud Fox, an ambitious rookie stockbroker from a blue-collar background who is mesmerized by Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), a Mephistophelean superbroker who specializes in corporate takeovers. Despite his initial resistance to Bud's entreaties, Gekko finally takes on the eager beaver as his protégé, schooling him in the kind of slash-and-burn maneuvers that have taken Gekko to the top. This style is far more attractive to Fox than the more prosaic but principled approach to investing preached by veteran Lou Mannheim (Hal Holbrook). And, at first, it's impossible to dispute his preference; as Bud's life moves into the fast lane, he quickly acquires an upscale apartment and a girlfriend to match, interior designer Darien (Darryl Hannah). But when Gekko demands that Bud not only break the law but directly undermine his union-leader father, Carl (Martin Sheen), and jeopardize the jobs and lives of his friends and family, he realizes that the cost of success might be more than he's willing to pay. WALL STREET is a riveting, testosterone-fueled tour of the Street's upper echelons, featuring standout performances by Michael Douglas and Martin Sheen.

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
Stone's "Wall Street" is a radical critique of the capitalist trading mentality, and it obviously comes at a time when the financial community is especially vulnerable. The movie argues that most small investors are dupes, and that the big market killings are made by men such as Gekko...Stone's most impressive achievement in this film is to allow all the financial wheeling and dealing to seem complicated and convincing, and yet always have it make sense...What's intriguing about "Wall Street" - what may cause the most discussion in the weeks to come - is that the movie's real target isn't Wall Street criminals who break the law. Stone's target is the value system that places profits and wealth and the Deal above any other consideration. His film is an attack on an atmosphere of financial competitiveness so ferocious that ethics are simply irrelevant, and the laws are sort of like the referee in pro wrestling - part of the show. - Roger Ebert

Reel.com 8 of 10
It's the quintessential 1980s tale of avarice and conscienceless machinations. Oliver Stone's over-the-top film actually foreshadowed a grim reality -- it was released just before the stock market crash of 1987. The film quickly gained acclaim for its actors and director, and become synonymous with the "me" decade...The beginning of the end comes when Gekko formulates a plan to make Blue Star Airlines -- the company Bud's father, Carl (Martin Sheen), works for -- more profitable. Carl senses something unscrupulous about the deal and begs Bud to get out of it. He doesn't, and quickly discovers that Gekko intends to liquidate the company for his own profit. Proving what an adept student he was, Bud uses all he has learned from Gekko to get revenge, even though he hurts himself in the process. - Vanessa Vance
