Solid film with great individual performances (particularly Christian Bale) but the 'self-made man of spurious origins' scenario is a little bit tired and while Bale's character is engaging and fun, his betrayal of those around him undermines his supposed loyal integrity. Amy Adams has never been sexier though!

a little too much hustle

This movie tries so desperately to mimic the look and feel of a Scorsese film that it fails to find its own voice in the process. "American Hustle" is very good at going through the motions, but it never seems to understand why such motions are necessary in the first place. The "tense" sequences create needless plot holes and the "twist" ending is contrived and barely worthy of being called cute, much less clever. For my money, this film received its accolades based mainly on its cinematic callbacks and its dynamic cast; not for its screenplay. If you really want to know what Scorsese in 2013 looks like, watch The Wolf of Wall Street instead and get a dose of the real thing.

170503: Generally a great cast portraying wonderfully colourful characters. Perhaps a couple poorer selections but they are minor characters and not worth dwelling on. Really enjoyed Bale, Cooper, Adams and Lawrence with Sydney Prosser (Adams) being my favourite. I found the story a bit convoluted but don't know how you could've really improved upon it. I also found the characters drew me in but the story did not. Just never really felt invested and what otherwise, was obviously a big budget film. May have received 10 Academy Award nominations but you'll note it did not win any of them. Perhaps others felt the same way I did as cast and characters do not a film make.

A fun and funny movie with great acting from the whole cast. A fun plot which isn't convoluted but not simple either. A good movie.

An outstanding cast and great direction make American Hustle a very appealing and beautiful piece of film.

Truely the worst film I have sat through. Plenty of people walked out during the film. I wish we had. Complete waste of our time.

Plot was confusing throughout and acting was average. It wasn't bad, but I expected a lot more.

Loved this one, it's sharp and funny. Not our usual fare but very entertaining. Quite believable despite being completely over-the-top.
