I watched Wall Street 2 several months ago and really enjoyed it. Something struck me about it and while I recognise that it's not nearly as powerful as the first film, I enjoyed this one a lot more. I watched it again tonight and I feel the same way. The first movie is a cautionary tale about greed and this sequel is about the consequences. The performances are good and Shia LaBouf is proving himself as a solid actor. Oliver Stone is getting softer with age and he's been showing this with his last few films, and in returning to this story he delivers it with more compassion and sympathy... and I think that works in the movie's favour. Family is a strong anchor and a basis of redemption. Its a great catch up.
