Critic Reviews of "Wall Street (1987)"Chicago ReaderSeptember 18, 2007
The sensibility of this movie is so adolescent that it's hard to take it as seriously as the filmmakers intend us to.VarietySeptember 18, 2007
Watching Oliver Stone's Wall Street is about as wordy and dreary as reading the financial papers accounts of the rise and fall of an Ivan Boesky-type arbitrageur.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Dramatically inept, the film also muddles its naïve moralising.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Wall Street isn't a movie to make one think. It simply confirms what we all know we should think, while giving us a tantalizing, Sidney Sheldon-like peek into the boardrooms and bedrooms of the rich and powerful.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
With its posturing politics and cardboard characterizations, Wall Street is not up to [Oliver Stone's] past standards.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
In Wall Street...you will see the evil, capitalistic impulses of man. Towards the end, you will see the self-righteous impulses of liberal finger-waggers. It's hard to tell which is worse.Reel Film ReviewsNovember 08, 2010
...an eye-opening behind-the-scenes glimpse at an almost alien landscape.TheFilmFile.comSeptember 23, 2010
For a motion picture that, at the time of shooting, was intended to be relatively hip and cutting-edge, it is now so laughably outdated it almost feels like science-fiction.Sarasota Herald-TribuneSeptember 20, 2010
Like the rest of Stone's oeuvre, it's about as subtle as a sledgehammer. But his filmmaking style is like heavy metal: When he hits the right chords, nobody plays with as much power or brash energy.Combustible CelluloidApril 16, 2010
Some of the 1980s-era details may seem a bit dated, and the movie's attitude toward women is slightly despicable, but the overall story arc, echoing the "Faust" tale, is timeless.LarsenOnFilmOctober 23, 2008
...blustery and unsophisticated, like many of the movies of Oliver Stone.
