Review: Money is notorious for being a major cause of a person’s downfall, and that’s exactly what happens in this film. Based on true events, The Wolf of Wall Street is a story about a stock broker named Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) who becomes addicted with power, money, and drugs after he reaches success with selling penny stocks. His outrageously ridiculous lifestyle leads him to do whatever it takes to maintain that and his wealth, even if it means doing it illegally. Leo gives a fantastic performance, including seeing him completely butt-naked!! Let me just say, he is one good looking man. Despite that, I was very disturbed while watching this movie because there was A LOT of nudity, curse words, and offensive references. Oh, and just a heads up: this movie is 3 hours long. Although it wasn’t necessary for it to have such a long running time, I was still entertained.
I give The Wolf of Wall Street one thumbs up. Leonardo DiCaprio is
