Among an excellent cast, Douglas truly is the nexus; he and Stone make this sequel pay off big-time.

That rare sequel that took its time -- 23 years -- so it not only advances a story but also has something new to say.

There are plenty of strong performances, and LaBeouf does a nice job of becoming the tough-skinned pragmatist. Mulligan is as earnest as ever, and Susan Sarandon and, particularly, Frank Langella make strong cameos.

A lot of Money Never Sleeps - too much - is about Gekko père's desire to reconnect with his very angry daughter.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
The film whipsaws between hyperbolic character study and preachy account of the recent financial meltdown. The two story lines are not well-integrated.

Mr. Douglas's performance in the sequel measures up to Gekko's rep, but the rest of the movie is pumped up to the bursting point with gasbag caricatures, overblown sermons and a semicoherent swirl of events surrounding the economy's recent meltdown.

Maybe money never sleeps, but this missed opportunity of a movie will have audiences dozing.
