Co-written and directed by Oliver Stone, Wall Street stars Michael Douglas, Charlie Sheen, Martin Sheen and Daryl Hannah. It tells the story of a young broker (Sheen) who ignores his moral compass in order to get rich quick. He finds work with Gordon Gekko (Douglas), a highly successful trader who has everything Sheen's character wants and has broken the law to get it.
This movie is gripping and suspenseful, as you see the stakes and the risks being continually raised for the characters. The young Sheen is brilliant in his role and the relationship with his real life father really helps to define the character.
For the late sequel Michael Douglas reprises his role as Gordon Gekko, alongside Shia LeBouf, Carrie Mulligan and Josh Brolin. Much like the first film a young stockbroker (LeBouf) is doing what he can to make his fortune, only this time he wants to marry Gekko's daughter.
Despite the fact that it is also by Oliver Stone, unfortunately this movie does not compare to the original. LeBouf's character is nowhere near as compelling as Sheen's.
That is not to say that it is bad. If you enjoyed the first one this is still worth watching.
