Product Overview

In this riveting behind-the-scenes look at big business in the 1980's, an ambitious young stockbroker (Charlie Sheen) is lured into the illegal, lucrative world of corporate espionage when he is seduced by the power, status and financial wizardry of Wall Street legend Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas in his Oscar winning performance). But he soon discovers that the pursuit of overnight riches comes at a price that's too high to pay. Daryl Hannah and Martin Sheen co-star in Oliver Stone's gripping morality tale about the American dream gone wrong.

Reviews
ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review 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.

Review 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.

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