Wall Street 2

A bit slow and cumbersome, really. Basically an Ollie Stone vehicle to attack big banks - with a thinly veiled and sustained attack on one real life bank in particular. Quite entertaining, in between repeated bouts of looking at my watch for the time...

6/10

It's sad, Wall Street is probably one of my favourite films. Will watch this anyway though, might be alright. Shia Labeouf was the worst thing in that more recent (and awful in every way) Indiana Jones film however.

Don't think I'll watch this, might watch Wall Street again though.

Actually, I think I was feeling sorry for it - still a 5/10 though, if only for the docu-drama feel of the film...

Shia LaBoeuf is again shit.
