By Liam Lacey
What keeps the energy percolating is DiCaprio’s performance, in the loosest and most charismatic turn of his career.

If it had been a drama, The Wolf of Wall Street might have been unwatchable: There’s simply too much of everything. But Scorsese and...

Scorsese tells the Wolf’s story almost strictly from the Wolf’s point of view. We never see his victims. It’s actually an effective...

Wolf on Wall Street

By doeallen1
After one hour of this incredibly disappointing film, my party of three left. There were many reasons for leaving the least of which was the intense drug use, explicit sexual encounters and the...

Did you nuns and 40 year old virgins think it was going to be a book club on wall street? Have you seen casino? That was scorsese's take on old vegas - now apply that to wall street...youve heard of...

As a fan of business related movies, this was terrible.

By brycemiller023
As someone that relies on Fandango reviews, I thought it was only right that I write one and warn people not to waste their money here. I'm a HUGE fan of Wall Street (maybe because of my finance...

This movie was fantastic for so many reasons, starting with the camera movement and coming full circle with the performances. All around everything was sensation in this film. Although, the film is...

Only an R?

I walked out of this movie after almost 3 hours, and I never walk out of a movie. The entire movie was profanity and soft porn, I was embarrassed and offended at the content. Do the people in...

Sheep In Wolf's Clothing

By starkfarm
This MIGHT have been a good two-hour movie but we'll never know. Redundant. Redundant. Redundant. Three-hours? Why? The drugs, the over-the-top office politics, the sex...we get it. It really...

Oh shield your eyes, there's a naked woman on the screen!

I feel like the people who are complaining about all of the sexual content aren't mature enough to actually understand it in the context of the entire story. This movie (allegedly) shows the dark...

Scorsese should do better

Way over the top…as my husband put it - just another Scorsese "GoodFellows" remake, same plot, same excessive drug use, sex scenes, blah blah blah. I was disappointed....

For Adults Only

By lminigu82
I love and I mean LOVE Leo's movies, but this movie had way too much full nudity. I thought it was a little unnecessary to have so many graphic sex scenes. I'm still glad I saw it and Jonah Hill did...

The Wolf of Wall Street

By masarskys
The movie was way too long. 2 hours would have been enough. Leonardo DiCaprio was very good and so was Jonah Hill. The plot is centered on greed and avarice which is nothing new in any movie...
