Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Taking off from where they left, Oliver Stone and Michael Douglas are back with a sequel to the 1987 Oscar winner “Wall Street”.

Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), who was sent to jail for securities fraud, insider trading and money laundering, has finally been released after eight years.

Unfortunately for Gekko, his daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan) has severed ties with him, holding him responsible for breaking up the family and his son’s untimely death.

Jake Moore (Shia laBeouf), in love with Winnie, is a Wall Street guru who is raking millions at Keller Zabel Investments.

Louis Zabel (Frank Langella) acts as mentor for Jake and helps him earn his rewards.
With time, the stock prices crash and Keller Zabel are denied a federal bailout. Bretton James (Josh Brolin), a calculating and manipulating businessman destroys Keller Zabel and forces Louis Zabel to commit suicide.

How Jack Moore wins the trust of Gordon Gekko and avenges the death of Louis and how the greedy and ambitious Gekko becomes the king maker yet again forms the remaining part of the story line.

The movie is not as gripping as the original and the star cast sure looks worn out.
Nevertheless, background score by David Bryne and Brian Eno and the hit single from the

Talking Heads is sure to strike a chord with the viewers.
