The Wolf of Wall Street

When I started watching this I had forgotten it was three hours long. When it ended though it didn’t seem that long but I was tired.

Marty just seems to be rehashing his old films with this one, Casino in particular comes to mind, but I think it was still well told.

Leonardo was pretty good, but in one scene he seemed to be thinking of an Oscar so did his best Jack Nicholson impersonation, which he did rather well. It didn’t work though. Some of the acting by the rest of the cast was horrible at times, especially in the scenes where Jordan was rousing his stockbroker crims, some of them looked like they thought they were WWF wrestlers getting pumped up for a fight. Sheesh!

But, overall I thought this was all right. Marty can still tell a story reasonably well, and there were some memorable scenes in it which some future comedy films may spoof.

The final scene set in Auckland made Kiwi’s look dimwitted, gullible, and talentless!
