Emerging from a lengthy prison stint, Gordon Gekko finds himself on the outside of a world he once dominated. Looking to repair his damaged relationship with his daughter, Gekko forms an alliance with her fiancÃ© Jacob (Shia LaBeouf), and Jacob begins to see him as a father figure. But Jacob learns the hard way that Gekko – still a master manipulator and player – is after something very different from redemption.
The much anticipated sequel to the 1987 classic starring Charlie Sheen and Michael Douglas is finely here. You know I’m kidding. Further proof Hollywood will remake and/or sequel anything. Then again considering all that has been going on with the economy in America lately, this is indeed relevant. The Charlie Sheen character is now that one kid from Transformers. The Gordon Gekko character was one awesome greedy bastard back in the day too.
The last Oliver Stone Film I saw was the incredibly underwhelming badly paced epic known as Alexander. So I am not all that exited about his films lately, despite my affinity for JFK.
