"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

A good movie

“Before reviewing this movie, I have to tell you some background concerning the circumstances in which I end up watching this flick.When I was living in France, I used to go very often to the movie theater, at least once week, since I was 12 years old. I just loved it but then I moved to the Netherlands, I met my wife, she already got two kids then we got a baby girl together. So, for a good 4 or 5 years, I didn’t go much to the theater because I was busy with my wife and kids. However, when the youngest got older, it started to hitch me, I wanted to have something for myself, some quality time so I decided to go back to the movies, just like in the good old days. I have never been a religious man but, to me, it was like getting back to my temple, seriously. So, of course, even before the” read more

In 1970s America, a detective works to bring down the drug empire of Frank Lucas, a heroin kingpin from Manhattan, who is smuggling the drug into the country from the Far East.
