The Wolf of Wall Street

Oscars Movie Review Series

Plot: 8 The story of Jordan Belfort and his partner Donny is told is Hollywood cinema dramatic fashion. The movie has no slow scenes, with interest and humor the entire way through. The screenplay adaptation shares what it was truly like to be Jordan Belfort in the 80s and 90s.

Acting: 9 Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill nailed their roles. Leo and Jonah were the you wanted to root for even though you knew that what they were doing was corrupt.

Mis-en-scene: 8 The convincing machine, office, and yacht in the movie are only a few examples that demonstrate how detailed this movie's set was. The actors were all in expensive, high-end clothing during the entire movie, making it super believable that these characters were indeed rich.

Total: 25/30
