"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!

Description: Following the death of his employer and mentor, Bumpy Johnson, Frank Lucas establishes himself as the number one importer of heroin in the Harlem district of Manhattan. He does so by buying heroin directly from the source in South East Asia and he comes up with a unique way of importing the drugs into the United States. As a result, his product is superior to what is currently available on the street and his prices are lower. His alliance with the New York Mafia ensures his position. It is also the story of a dedicated and honest policeman, Richie Roberts, who heads up a joint narcotics task force with the Federal government. Ba ... (more)

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (195 movies items)

"29.6, Netflix Denzel "My Man" Washington esittää gangsteria, ja tekee roolisuorituksensa käyttäen samoja ylimielisiksi kokemiani maneereja, joista en pidä. Siltikin jotain rikollispomolle tarvittavaa peräänantamattomuutta äijä saa hahmoonsa luotua. Elokuva on tunnevaraukseltaan hiukan köyhä, mutta koin tarinan sen epäomaperäisyydestä huolimatta miellyttävältä seurata."

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: April (15 movies items)

"April 23-24 "The loudest one in the room is the weakest one in the room." Had this on DVD for ages, but never got around to watching it until now and it was great. From the start I was really invested in the story and how it was going to play out. Denzel Washington is fantastic in his respective role and Russell Crowe delivers what is possibly my favorite role from him. I'm normally not the biggest fan of him, but he can deliver a really good performance at times and this is one of them. But"
