Oliver Stone waited 23 years to make the sequel to his landmark social drama about unbridled avarice, Wall Street. Why? Choose one: 1) To take advantage of the Great Recession; 2) Michael Douglas (reprising his role as financial reptile Gordon Gekko) was waiting for someone to write a topper for his signature line, “Greed is good”; or 3) Shia LeBeouf. In all fairness, much-picked-on actor LeBeouf isn’t that bad as a young investment banker, engaged to marry Gekko’s estranged daughter (Carey Mulligan), who joins forces with the old man to get revenge on an even slimier financier (Josh Brolin). Along the way, director Stone — with the help of writers Stanley Weiser, Allan Loeb, and Stephen Schiff — skewers the usual business-world excesses with something like his former enthusiasm. But it’s been done before, better, by numerous documentarians as well as by Stone himself. Not even Susan Sarandon (as the LeBeouf character’s real estate agent mother) or Eli Wallach (a patriarch banker) provides much sizzle. Talk about derivatives. (113 min.)
