This Definalty one of Ridely Scotts best films. I believe Ridley Scott is up their with the best directors George Lucas and Steven Speilberg. Denzel Washington and Russel Crowe Delivers their best performances of their Carrer.
American Gangster is once in a life time mob movies that can match Godfather or Scarface. Ok maybe not Godfather but overall freakin' sweet movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
American Gangster is a good movie if you really like mob movies. Denzel was great. He portrayed a well mannered mobster, Frank Lucas. On the other hand Russell Crowe did well, but I wasn't really liking the way he talked, at times you could still hear his accent. But other than that it was an all round good mobster movie. But it wouldn't really make me wanna watch it over again. Once is enough.
When I walked into the theater, I hoped that this movie would live up to my expectations. With Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, I was expecting a solid movie (especially after watching 3:10 to Yuma). I am happy to say, that this movie delivered. Following Frank's life story on BET, the film matched it close to perfection. I'm thankful that I got to watch this film in the theaters and I can't wait to watch the special features and behind the scenes on DVD. I would rate this movie as a buy, any true collector would put this movie in their collection.
Well i was expecting something more not sure why but i was. I had seen the BET American Gangster episode when they told us Franks life story. Call it a spoiler if you will but i was still looking forward to it. So anyway after seeing it I'm going to label this one as a rental not so much a theater movie. Russel Crow did great as did Denzel Washington but i felt like when watching Denzel that i was watching his character from "Training Day" also think he over used the line "My man" lol. Well I'd say this is a Friday night movie grab some brews play some poker and watch it luck'y it doesnt require youre full attention.
I was waiting for another Godfather type of movie. I was so wrong. The movie grabs you right from the start and never lets you go. The time was not a concern as it kept you gripped and brings the story home. Denzel; Great job!
This is an excellent movie. Even the slow parts kept you alert. It was not your typical Hollywood sensationalized movie. I can’t wait to add it to my DVD collection.
It was a great ride. The time period was right on. Ridley Scott painted another masterpiece.
