"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!

"13.09.2014 "Success. It's got enemies. You can be successful and have enemies or you can be unsuccessful and have friends." For some reason this has been one of those movies that i have always wanted to watch, but never got around to until now. I'm really glad i finally got around to it though because i really liked it. Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe were both amazing as usual as Frank Lucas and Richie Roberts. This is a pretty amazing story and i don't think they could have chosen two be"

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’."
