A big, unruly bacchanal of a movie that huffs and puffs and nearly blows its own house down, but holds together by sheer virtue of its furious filmmaking energy and a Leonardo DiCaprio star turn so electric it could wake the dead.

An epic, boldly broad screwball comedy about the state of America, then and now.

Plays modern tragedy as epic farce, reminding us just how much fun Scorsese can be when he's in a playful mood.

Here is a white-collar crime caper that stirs golden memories of the Scorsese back catalogue, often quite knowingly and sometimes to a fault.

The length gives Scorsese, Winter, and their ensemble cast an opportunity to build setpieces of suitable extravagance, true to an antihero who installs a helicopter landing deck on his yacht just because he can.

The wages of greed and excess portrayed in grand, operatic, often very funny style.

Scorsese's funniest and most focused film in a long time, a jet-black sex and drug-soaked comedy featuring a bravura performance by Leonardo DiCaprio.

This could have been a scolding expose of the excesses of Wall Street. Instead we are invited to enjoy the ride and not think too hard about the consequences. What's the point? I'm sure this film cost a crazy amount of money to make, why recreate something only to say nothing about the causes or the effects?

A dark, thrilling character study with a side of crude, sexually-charged comedy. DiCaprio is fantastic and this is classic Scorsese.

A fast paced, exceptional film that had you gripped from beginning to end. Wolf of Wall street takes the viewer on a journey from the beginning of a career to getting addicted to the high life to total demise and rebuilding yourself from the bottom up. DiCaprio is fantastic throughout the whole film keeping you drawn to him with his suave and encapsulating...

The best film out in a while... non-stop entertainment. Thankfully, no judgement is cast on Belfort's actions. We just watch an honest portrayal of the life and the times. Unexpectedly hilarious also. Three hours from the best filmmaker on the planet.

Could have easily shortened by at least 45 minutes, rather hollow, predictable and boring plus giving the message that getting high on drugs is the best thing in the world beats all of reality.

Loved this movie but cutting out 45 minutes would have been really helpful and not affected the storyline. And could have done without so much full on sex / nudity scenes and the most ever "F bombs' BUT still loved it. The acting by Leonardo is truly outstanding and the same for Jonah Hill. Its a wild and fast paced epic story

Should have presented a salient but the Scorsese treatment was more about excess in production than in reality. Some scenes defy possibility and credulity turning the thing into a 3 hour fantasy and detract from the real issue about the impact of dishonesty and integrity. Oh well, perhaps the producer suffers from these traits just a little too much me...
