Movie Review: American Gangster

Directed by: Ridley Scott
Produced by: Brian Grazer, Ridley Scott
Written by: Steve Zaillian
Starring: Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Josh Brolin, Lymari Nadal
Distributed by: Universal Studios
Release date(s): November 2, 2007
Running time: 158 min.
Budget: US$100 million

A few days ago I went to see "American Gangster". With a running time of 158 minutes it was quite long. Afterwards I was thinking to myself "maybe they could have done it in 90 minutes". I like Denzel Washington very much. And I also liked him in American Gangster. However, the movie itself was a bit long-winded. For me it´s definitely not a movie for a movie-night with friends at home. But maybe it´s because I didn´t like "The Godfather" either. Maybe you´ll like American Gangster if you liked The Godfather. Have you seen American Gangster yet? What do you think about it?

It is not that American Gangster is a movie is bad or even empirically intractable. But you should not be surprised if when you leave the room, you forget the movie ever existed.

American Gangster tells a fascinating story of impeccable production design, and two powerhouse performances, but Ridley Scott is not Scorsese and the film never comes together.

American drama is a good movie with fine drama, great performances and a dizzy morality tale. I think it would have been much better if script was better.

It is a powerful film that had me thinking about how Frank could have been a rich man on his own if there was a lethal drug as their product. Russell Crowe plays a cop who is determined very convincing finally know who was chasing Frank and all of its bus network Frank. This is not a movie for children. I do not recommend taking children or teens to see this film.

Telling the truth it was really great to watch this as the sequence were unfolding in movie. Maybe I liked it because I have not seen 'The Godfather' yet but that should not take the credit from the movie and star cast.

A gang of America is more procedural than anything; essential, through the implementation of a number of parties sympathetic to a good standard for the mob drama coach.
