If i had not watched "The Wire" and had they not put in one of the characters from the series, i would not compared it. (which was a bad move on their behalf)
Crowe was warm cool as he always is.

Imbd rating = 9.1/10 :O

I like drug related movie + Denzel Washington is my favorite Actor....

The movie is great, the character are all awesome... but i do not like the ending...He is really a bad ass ( The scene where he shot the head of the guy in the market that's "wow"... ), but in the end he become a rat and joined the police to track down Bad cop.......:(

i thought it was a decent film and thought all actors did a good job. i don't believe this film should be up for an academy award though. what for?

i too like the head shot in the market. lol, pwn3d. also, wish mr. washington would had killed that cop that stole his cash and shot his dog. fuck that.

i gave it an 8.

who did mr. washington shoot @ the end of the film?

8/10. I enjoyed it. good acting from denzel and russel as usual.

9/10 thought it was an excellent film. I'd say the best gangster movie to come out in years and the best movie I've seen in a long time.

I agree with Mr Nails:
he should have killed that cop. Also how good is the opening scene where he shoots the bloke that's on fire. Pretty powerful start to a movie.

10-29-2007, 07:17 PM

This was a really good movie , but I liked Blow better, the acting was good but could of been better I think, it had a good plot line too.

i give it a 6/10 i have seen all this before, except the ganster is black.

the movie is way to long.......reminds me of the godfather.

the movie is way to long.......reminds me of the godfather.

You say that like its a bad thing :O

American ganster was just one of those movies that had me glued to the screen on its entirety. I hardly budged from my seat as this biographical movie engrossed with its efficient storytelling. Kudos to Ridley Scott and the Crowe-Washington duo.

Brilliant movie!

...and the Oscar goes to...:)

i thought the plot had alot of holes in it. it lacked a certain completeness that really turned me off from the movie towards the end. frank lucas never really went through any sort of character devlopment--you never really got to know frank lucas.

although i did enjoy the movie. it had a feel of being slapped together.

yes, i would also agree that blow was better. i think in the end of blow we had all come to really like george jeung (johnny depp). in american gangster, i actually wanted russell crowe to catch his ass

...and the Oscar goes to...:)

guaranteed not to this movie.

11-06-2007, 08:47 PM
I Think this is a great film 8/10.

11-08-2007, 08:33 PM
9/10 Great movie... As if in books, it's a page turner.

11-08-2007, 09:59 PM
to people who bitch about the end, youre retarded. its based on a true story, you cant just change the end to something that happened in real life.

great movie 9/10

11-08-2007, 11:25 PM
8/10 I like Denzel's return to being a bad guy. He was baaaad ass in Training Day.

11-12-2007, 01:06 PM

11-12-2007, 08:06 PM

I saw this movie last week, I must say that is really good... I love Ridley Scott and Denzel Washington is my favorite actor...

11-27-2007, 06:08 PM
This film is realy good. His record on true story, and this story is amazing.

11-28-2007, 02:00 PM
i think it was kinda boring.
love gangster movies, love drugs movie (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Blow, Trainspotting).
this movie was tooooo long. needed more censor before being released...
No action whatsoever. besides i drank way too much coke and had to pee.
Denzel Washington was great as always, movie sucked.

11-28-2007, 02:10 PM
gr8 movie, denzel is denzel, but im afraid without denzel it's average film
