The Wolf of Wall Street 
The Wolf of Wall Street review
3/4 stars

A dark comedy on Wall Street players instead of the usual gangsters. It starts of slow then picks up in the middle and just fizzles towards the end. Jordan Belfort's character reminded me of Tony Montana from Scarface. Everything in excess and coupled with a funny right hand man. The cast shines and Leonardo DiCaprio was spectacular in all aspects. He was very convincing and really shows a total transformation of a mere applicant in Wall Street to a very successful conniving drug/sex addict. It was surprising how most part of the film was funny and in the near conclusion with speech it wasn't that heartfelt and one cannot sympathize for Belfort's actions. Soundtrack, settings and direction were masterful coming from Scorsese. Only minor faults this reviewer noticed were the massive amounts of long scenes which prolonged the picture, insufficient background history on Agent Denham or even the skill of gab from Belfort, realism of select scenes and a better ending since the build-up was very fluid. Screenplay was well written with lines like: "The name of the game, moving the money from the client's pocket to your pocket." and "Was all this legal? Absolutely not but we were making more money then we knew what to do with." The Wolf of Wall Street skillfully and humorously portrays a greedy person who is addicted with sinful vices. Entertaining at most, too long (especially the sex and drugs moments) and lacks that certain impact or moral angle to make it great.

Pretty much exactly how I felt about it!

I agree with every point you make. It just got too repetitive for me.
