Tremendous achievementBy buganna from London , 03 Nov 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]Oliver Stone breaks open the inside world of corporate America, to deliver a story that is truly unforgettable. Already a genuine classic, this film combines intelligent screenplay with art and charisma, to produce a remarkable piece of cinema. A stark look at corporate greed, illegal trading, and general outlook on our own human nature, convincing, sincere and totally without the usual Hollywood sweetners. A genuine masterpiece.

Dated but entertainingBy Bassman71 (696 reviews) from Didsbury, England , 25 Jan 2013Young stockbroker, wants to be the best, courts big league stockbroker, joins him, yuppietastic. Obviously dated and of its time but well-made and entertaining enough 80s romp with Yuppies and the Greed is Good ethic. An all-star cast with Michael Douglas in one of his finest roles and Martin Sheen playing his real sons Father who I thought was the standout. I thought Charlie Sheen was a bit hit and miss at times and you could almost imagine Tom Cruise playing this role and he may have pulled it off better but I think he was doing Top Gun.

Very 80sBy RJNeb2 (1013 reviews) from London , 12 Sep 2012Oliver Stone's rather too obvious morality play set in amongst the financial chicanery of the New York Stock Exchange has a dated charm to it now, though rather alarmingly the lessons learned in it don't seem to have been applied to the real world several decades down the track. Charlie Sheen is a vapid Everyman, Daryl Hannah clearly wishes she was elsewhere and most of the dialogue is meaningless to anyone not working in the industry. But it's all saved by Michael Douglas' mesmerising barracuda-like turn as the instantly quotable Gordon Gekko. His reptilian demeanour gives the film a fascination it probably doesn't entirely deserve.
Greed makes the world go aroundBy nugboy (7 reviews) , 05 Sep 2011I really enjoyed this film. It is not an edge of the seat sort of thing but it is very cleverly written and kept me watching until the end.
With some good performances from a very young looking Charlie Sheen and a not so young looking Michael Douglas.
The theme of this film will never get old as it focuses on that timeless achilles heal of so many people in the world...greed!!
A good watch and a great insight to those naughty people that work in the world of stocks and shares. Is this sort of thing the reason for the state of economic turmoil across the world? I think I will let you decide for yourself...sit back and enjoy.
Well worth a watchBy a customer , 24 Aug 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideThis really gives an insight to what Wall Street was and our banks were doing recently! Charlie Sheen & Michael Douglas at their best but at bit of a shame it didn't really have that punchy ending. Well worth a watch and hope the follow up is just as enthralling
