"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!

Total Film's 50 Movies That Are Longer Than Should (50 movies items)

"Length: 157 mins Why That's Too Long: When you have a crime drama between two people on opposite sides of the law, the lack of other main characters usually means that there’s not a lot of other things to explore. How We'd Fix It: We’d end the film on Lucas’s arrest. As enjoyable as it is to see Crowe and Washington go head to head in an interrogation scene, by this point, Roberts has already ‘won’."

"Katsottu: 21.4.2014, 2nd Watch, DVD 70-luvulla harlemilainen Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) alkaa tuomaan USA:han 100-prosenttista heroiinia, ja nousee pian voittamattomaksi huumekuninkaaksi. Lucasin mielenrauhan rikkoo lahjomaton poliisi Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe), joka on pääsemässä hänen jäljilleen. Ridley Scottin (Blade Runner, Gladiaattori) ohjaama rikoselokuva on ihan mielenkiintoista katseltavaa, ja ihan hyvät näyttelijätkin tässä oli. Vähän parempi kuin muistin. D"
