Very Average LONG "Gangster Movie" nothing that special with this movie. Decent performances, but nothing that you haven't seen before.

Very entertaining though the real life people state very little of it is actually true.

12/15/2016: A good crime drama with an excellent cast. There isn't much action and it's pretty long, but still a good movie. Too long to watch again though.

Frank Lucas made an awesome impression on me how's business needed to be taken care of for some time while. But he really longed for the last run... and finally underestimated lawenforcement units and traitors around him. Should have hidden dope in a new place for a while with extra care and attention with trustworthy fellas.

Solid based on a true story drama flick by Scott. Two strong characters doing somewhat subtle appearance, thus with tremendous effect. Denzel is shining as a controlled and reflected drug dealer on a sofisticated level. Russel Crowe playing the anti-corrupt hardworking cop, slashing through the filth and corruption in the NYPD.

A gritty and entertaining throwback to classic gangster flicks. American Gangster is another great film from director Ridley Scott and Denzel Washington at his very best of his entire career

A rare organized crime film that doesn't center around Italian Americans, featuring a intense, strong performance from Denzel Washington.

Filled with detail and fine performances, American Gangster is an entertaining-albeit safe-gangster film.

Russell Crowe and the supporting cast, as well as Ridley Scott's direction are all very good, but this is completely Denzel Washington's film

American Gangster is a stylish, thrilling movie with powerhouse performances from Crowe and Washington. Scott's film is mostly exceptional, aside a few pacing issues, but the acting is the main focus of the movie.

Um, just wow. Classic along with Cassino and Goodfellas.

Even based on true events most films like this like to add more action in places but Ridley Scott focuses less on the action side on more on the story telling side, And it is told very well, With a very strong cast lead by Denzel Washington and Russel Crowe who were both fantastic, It doesn't drag as much as you think given the running time but maybe sparkles of action wouldn't of gone a miss, Having said that the ending was good and the whole tone of the film was great too, It's far from you average American drug gang films but it's up there with the best.
