The Wolf of Wall Street movie review - Aussieboyreviews


It’s definitely best leaving to adult audiences due to the sex, language and drugs. But The Wolf of Wall Street is an excellent and entertaining crime film.


After being introduced to working at a Wall Street brokerage firm, Jordan Belfort cheats his way to the high life by defrauding wealthy investors until his relationships slide and corruption causes his fall.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, Martin Scorsese directs a long but simply amazing crime biopic! Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie’s performances in The Wolf of Wall Street are phenomenal, besides the pace of the history is entertaining enough to shape the length into pleasing enjoyment.

Although it’s fully intended for adult audiences only, nearly every scene of writing, acting and theme is astonishing. The sense of dark humour is unconditionally hilarious and the crime, oh the crime is terrific! Seriously, a crime-drama like The Wolf of Wall Street will never ever fail to impress, but still gets quite explicit at times.

Despite some clips getting too advanced and plenty of personalized moments, The Wolf of Wall Street is a pleasurable biography film about Jordan Belfort’s life involving crime and corruption. It’s a legendary biography of money, drugs and power, packed with bent rules, laughs and mastered construction from Martin Scorsese.
