Last night I went to my local Cinema to watch Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street at my local cinema. I wasn’t too sure what to expect, however it did star Leonardo DiCaprio, an actor of which I’ve always enjoyed watching on the big screen in some of his previous roles such as The Titanic, Catch Me If You Can and Inception. Now, this review may give away some of the plot of the movie so this is where I put in large capital bold text . . .
… SPOILER ALERT!
If you haven’t seen the movie yet and you want to savour the film for you to digest I would suggest you stop reading now! (Don’t say I didn’t warn you)
The movie is based on the memoirs of Jordan Belfort, a Wall Street Stock Broker that pleaded guilty to money laundering and securities fraud in 1999 after which he spent two years in prison and forced to pay back over $100 million to any and all of the investors that he had defrauded.
The movie details Belfort’s rise from being an average Joe individual eager to claim his fortune on Wall Street. During the movie we see his rise from being a quiet, eager nobody struggling to pay his bills and rent, to becoming a powerful and confident and wealthy individual with a heavy personal investment in recreational drugs.
Throughout the film the audience see how Belfort and his team (with actors such as Brian Sacca, Henry Zebrowski, P.J Byrne and Kenneth Choi) work together to create a vast amount of financial fortune for themselves and their “company”.
Being just over three hours long this movie isn’t a chore to dedicate yourself to, within ten minutes of the movie beginning you will find yourself heavily invested in the plot, the characters and the pacing of the film.
This movie is fast paced, and exciting, with its fair share of nudity, drugs, strong language and will leave you debating the movie with anyone else that you know will have watched it. After watching the movie with a group of friends I found myself afterwards in a local restaurant discussing the movie with them over a meal, debating as to whether we would have done what Belfort did were we in his position and given the opportunities that he was given.
The point to take away from the movie is that there are no shortcuts in life, and that there are no fast and easy ways to get what you want. Say for example you get the easiest and cheapest Waterproof Jacket on the market, this jacket isn't going to last you in the long run, it’s going to become ineffective and not be anywhere near in terms of performance as effective were you to compare said jacket to one that you have invested time into and could quite easily wear for the next five years. Let’s be honest, if you were to enter a drag race, wouldn’t you rather drive a Ferrari that you’d had to invest time and money into yet is guaranteed for you to win, or would you rather drive a Vauxhall Corsa that was cheap and easy to get your hands on and hope that you won’t lose.
