"Frank Lucas is the most dangerous man walking the streets of our city."

American Gangster is another film of 2007 that separates the audiences who seek rubbish blockbusters (like Transformers, Spider-Man 3, etc) and those who seek fine filmmaking no matter how slowly the film is paced. To like this film, you must be part of the latter.

Every bit as good as I anticipated. Doesn't showboat like some of the great crime films that came before it, it just tells it like it is. Crowe and Washington bring it big time!

“American Gangster is a very smooth cool crime story, the story follows Frank Lucas a New York gangster/ druglord and NYPD cop Richie Roberts. You follow Frank from the begining when after his mentor dies, decides to be king of the New York drug scene, and you follow Richie a good cop who leads a small team on the search for Frank. This is a very good crime movie, Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe who are good actors anyway, do a fantastic job. The story is good as well, and beacuse it is based on true events I thnink it helped a lot. If you like a good crime movie, than this movie will not disapoint it is really good.” read more

"Watched on the 8th/9th. Was pretty good, quite long winded but it was carried well so that you don't notice the length of the film. Great acting of course."
