Wolf of Wall Street

With no truly likeable characters to root for and a constant flow of circus acts, the movie leaves you feeling unfulfilled, a little disturbed and as if you had joined them in smoking crack

Wolf of Wall Street is the classic case of a movie that is so overhyped it becomes guaranteed to fall short of expectations. By far one of the most highly anticipated films of the year proves to be for no reason other than the repeat DiCaprio/Scorsese collaboration. The film is three long hours of the most vulgar sex acts, nonstop use of hard drugs (putting it lightly) and Leo doing his best again at trying to snag that Oscar nom. While DiCaprio did an outstanding acting job that is sure get deserved recognition, it is sad to say it is becoming a bit overdone seeing him play characters that are always going off the deep end. With all the sex, drugs and some domestic violence thrown in, the movie stacks up to be your typical Scorsese film, so if that is your thing, Wolf of Wall Street will be right up your alley. To sum it up, the following quote was overheard by a fellow viewer when exiting the theater, “that was really intense to watch and all that laughing was just from being nervous.” With no truly likeable characters to root for and a constant flow of circus acts, the movie leaves you feeling unfulfilled, a little disturbed and as if you had joined them in smoking crack. The Christmas day release date, the one after another sold out shows and theater lines around the corner were unfortunately not correct indications of how good the movie is.
