Well I actually watched the Wall Street sequel last night.
I was actually pleasantly suprised for about 80% of the movie. The ending was off because I don't think they knew what they really wanted to do there & I have a feeling this is one of those movies that they did a test audience and determined how to end it after that.
But overall it was nothing like I expected. In fact they really did themselves a disservice with the way they advertised the movie. I won't give away anything if you haven't seen it but Gordon Gecko is not acuratly portrayed in the commercials as to how he is used in the film which was a pleasant suprise.
Also my other biggest fear for the film, he had a Son not a Daughter in the first film, and this was very well explained.
In other words I thought Oliver Stone had lost his mind (what little he had) and forgot his first film. Not at all. In fact there are a lot of characters who re-appear in the film. The real estate agent that sold Bud Fox the condo is the real estate who is there for this one (My God that woman has to be 90).
Also they talk about Bud Fox early on in the show so I thought that was it. The lo & behold at a charity event there is Bud Fox. This scene is classic & explains how Bud didn't really learn any lessons from his time with Gordo.
Like I said they didn't end it the way I would have preferred but overall this movie was much MUCH MUCH better than I thought it would be.
