Movie Review: The Wolf of Wall Street- Get ready to join the pack

If you haven’t see this go now. You are in for a wild ride from the first scene to the last. I warn you the nudity, drugs, and greed get crazy but if you don’t mind I guarantee you will be on the floor rolling.

This is based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government, but who knows how loosely based because this is a wild ride. Leo narrates through the entire movie reminiscent of how Ray Liota does in Goodfellas except there is no mob or violence in this movie.  This is not a remake of Wall Street as some of you may have thought but stands on its own two drug-addled feet.

As I said Leo does amazing but you can’t forget Jonah Hill who not only looks ridiculous through the entire movie but is hilariously idiotic and a little revolting. LOL. Matthew McConaughey makes a cameo that is shown in all the trailers and thats it, but his cameo sticks with you and changes Jordan Belfort's view of the stock market .There is not much to say about the story line it’s the typical poor guy climbing to riches illegally and then falling. However, I did find myself rooting for him to get away with it the entire time, probably due to the charisma of Leo.



Another fabulous movie by Scorcese. I highly recommend seeing this it is up for many Oscars and well deserved. Share your thoughts tell me I’m wrong or Right at www.yourmediaworld.com.
