wall street money never sleeps - embitterment level - disappointment level

Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) is back after fourteen years in prison for insider trading, and he is no longer the man who once said “Greed is good”. Instead, he has written a book with the title Is Greed Good? and lectures young would-be brokers about a coming financial meltdown because the system is rotten.
Jacob Moore (Shia LaBeouf) is a young trader who wants to make it to the top – and is in love with Gekko’s estranged daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan).

If Oliver Stone has set out to make the definitive movie about the recent financial crunch then Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is a failure. It comes too late, preaching what everybody already knows, and Shia LaBeouf hardly convinces as a young stock-exchange shooting star. It is telling when a 10-second cameo from original Wall Street star Charlie Sheen is a highlight of this belated sequel.
