  • Ambitious young investment banker Jacob Moore (Shia LaBeouf) discovers that greed is still the name of the game when he forges a fragile alliance with onetime Wall Street hotshot Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) shortly after Gekko is released from prison. Having served eight years for securities fraud, money laundering, and racketeering, Gekko emerges from prison to find that his daughter, Winnie (Carey Mulligan), prefers to remain estranged, and that his former Wall Street cohorts are still raking in the cash. Flash-forward to 2008, and Winnie is dating a proprietary trader named Jake Moore (LaBeouf), who expresses a passion for green energy while working for his mentor Louis Zabel (Frank Langella), of Keller Zabel Investments. Despite heading up one of the most prominent investment firms in the country, Louis Zabel is forced to personally fight for the future of Keller Zabel before the Federal Reserve after the company's stock takes a hit due to persistent rumors that it's being dragged down by debt. Denied a bailout from the government, Keller Zabel soon falls victim to a hostile takeover lead by powerful investment bank partner Bretton James (Josh Brolin), of Churchill Schwartz. His job on the line and his mentor out of the picture, Jake discovers that Gordon Gekko is out promoting his new book "Is Greed Good?" and decides to attend a lecture being given by the author at Fordham University. According to Gekko, greed is now sanctioned by the government, and the U.S. economy is on the verge of collapse as a direct result of leveraged debt and wild conjecture. When Jake goes behind Winnie's back to try and repair her relationship with her father, Gekko reveals his compelling theories on the likely reasons for Zabel's downfall. Later, as Jake begins plotting to avenge his mentor, Gekko starts to reveal his true colors.

  • Critic Reviews
    4 stars out of 5 -- "Brilliantly cast, WALL STREET 2 is a crackerjack powerhouse of a movie that shines a light on the financial machinations described by Warren Buffet as 'an economic Pearl Harbor.' Douglas is once again superb..."
    Box Office

    "Oliver Stone's sequel to WALL STREET conjures the same darkly exciting atmosphere....It's vibrantly acted and entertainingly overstuffed."

    "Mr. Douglas sustains a sense of nasty fun as the former snake with the lizardly name..."
    Wall Street Journal

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's a smart, glossy, beautifully photographed film that knows its way around the Street."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Douglas reprises his role with such relish it's hard to resist....There are plenty of strong performances, and LaBeouf does a nice job of becoming the tough-skinned pragmatist."
    USA Today
