Reviews of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps varied amongst the critics.
“As with many recent Stone projects, it’s hard to tell what the focus is supposed to be.” -David Edelstein, New York Magazine
“It’s an entertaining story about ambition, romance and predatory trading practices, but it seems more fascinated than angry. Is Stone suggesting this new reality has become embedded, and we’re stuck with it?” -Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps is a movie only a hedge fund manager could love.” -Rex Reed, New York Observer
“Stone is a great technical director, and he uses his skill to excellent effect here. He loads the screen with information – montages of cable-news reports, stock listings, more, more, more.” -Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
