The Good

Wall Street was a fantastic movie, Gordon Gekko was an icon to all the young traders back in the day. Money Never Sleeps is also being directed by Oliver Stone which is promising, since Stone shouldn’t botch his own sequel.

The Bad

Shia LaBeouf? Why? No Darryl Hannah cameo? If Bud Fox can make it to the sequel, why not Darien Taylor?

Wall Street 2: Prediction

Obviously Money Never Sleeps will be huge, look forward to everything in the movie but Shia LaBeouf.


  1. Stupid not to use Sheen and Hannah in this sequel. I think it will bomb.
    The characters are too strong and pronounced to fool around with; when something works, you stick with it and not change it. Believe me, when viewers compare this to the original there will be a collective disappointment
