Movie Summary
Greed is Good. This is the credo of the aptly named Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), the antihero of Oliver Stones Wall Street. Gekko, a high-rolling corporate raider, is idolized by young-and-hungry broker Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen). Inveigling himself into Gekkos inner circle, Fox quickly learns to rape, murder and bury his sense of ethics. Only when Gekkos wheeling and dealing causes a near-tragedy on a personal level does Fox reform-though his means of destroying Gekko are every bit as underhanded as his previous activities on the trading floor. Director Stone, who cowrote Wall Street with Stanley Weiser, has claimed that the film was prompted by the callous treatment afforded his stockbroker father after 50 years in the business; this may be why the films most compelling scenes are those between Bud Fox and his airline mechanic father (played by Charlie Sheens real-life dad Martin). Ironically, Wall Street was released just before the October, 1987 stock market crash. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
