I was in two minds about this movie when watching the trailer because it seemed interesting but I was sure whether it was going to be my type of movie. However I have to say this movie is a must see, it had me laughing out loud at the cinema multiple times. Anyone that knows me will know that there is very few things that make me laugh out loud when watching a movie or TV Show.
The acting was good and the storyline was also well told as it was based on a real person I felt that it kept fresh. I think this was one of the reasons I thought it wasn’t going to be for me because it was a true story I was thinking that it would be more of a drama than it was. I felt it was also a movie that gave you mixed messages, there was a positive from the story in the fact that it proves that you can do anything you want in life as long as you work hard for it. However the negative side to this without giving too much away, the main character Jordan Belfort let the job consume him along with the lifestyle that wasn’t necessarily legal so it had consequences.
So what would I say overall about this movie? Don’t judge it completely by the trailer and definitely give it a chance. The reason for this is I feel this movie does actually have something for everyone. I would give this movie 9/10 and as there isn’t a lot in the cinema yet, I would recommend you go check it out.
