Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort. From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late '80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title "The Wolf of Wall Street"

I could tell from the outset it was going to be a fun ride and even for being three hours long it was. It was enjoyable to be enlightened to the exploits of Jordan Belfort and even after the movie I found myself following up and googling Belfort, reading reviews and wanting to read his memoir. Interesting

Way too much sex scenes, worst than a XXX-rated movie and language. This is the worst way of making a movie from auto biography book. I read the book and the book has lots of interesting situations as well but it is shame that this director chose all X rated situations from the book. Only 10% of scenes are made with out sex and vulgar.
I expected high level from the great actors like DiCaprio. I think the director wanted to make a celebrity XXX movie. Very disappointing. This movie is simply worth to flush through the toilet.

Man of poor character makes money, loses money. Could have been OK with some editing ... wwwaaayyyy too long for an unremarkable story. If you have nothing better to do, it can be watched; brace for misogyny.

Way too much gratuitous sex much closer to what should be x-rated than r (imo), language, decadence. I can understand some of that was needed for the story, but it was way, way (way) too much.

Which is too bad, because if you took out 90% of the over-the-top decadence and just suggested, hinted and made clear it was there without having to show it, then it would have been a Class A movie (with a lot of GREAT acting). I think it is true that DiCaprio did his best acting job ever in this film.

Too bad it was made to entertain some imagined mass of decadent people. Very, very disappointing, but it flushed down the toilet just like the Wolf of Wall Street's life.

Wasn't overly impressed with the cinematography or writing; an account of hedonism and excess makes you wonder if the film is really about Wall Street's corruption/greed as much as its drug culture. Scorsese seems to enjoy these edgy depictions of big-city fringe communities (see: Goodfellas, the Departed)

Was going to watch it but don't do movies with the F word so I'm going to take a pass. (Of course finding out Scorsese's the director tells you all you need to know about that!)

Even if you hated this movie, which plenty did, you gotta admit it had some classic scenes. DiCaprio crawling/rolling to the car, his bizarre dance at the wedding, the infomercial, "I will NOT. DIE. SOBER!" There was a ton of sleaze and excess but hey, it depicted a lifestyle defined by sleaze and excess. Scorsese seems to have fun as a director, glorying in the epic, sometimes nauseating highs and lows. The movie is as manic and high-octane as its main character, like a three-hour ride on the zipper.

I was quite nervous to watch this since I've heard it's quite outrageously sexual and crude. I watched it with a friend and boy, this was a incredible movie about the four things that destroyed all of the characters that started off as ok people: Sex, money, drugs and power. It was intense and powerful to see the characters lose their morality and basically becoming animalistic. The whole film is about excess. So, were 13 sex scenes, 619 F words and double digit drug scenes necessary? Absolutely. This movie is about the corruption that is still going on at Wall Street. It a thought provoking and unforgettable film. Leonardo DiaCaprio had the best performance of his life. The acting was top notch. Scorcese was at his best directing. The cinematography is incredible. Everything about this movie was very very good. The movie clocks in at 3 hours long. But it is entirely worth it to see the brilliant story telling, cinematography and excellent acting!

Jordan Belfort: But if you can make your clients money at the same time it's advantageous to everyone, correct?
