It's beginning to look a lot like Oscar Season. The holiday season is filled with most of the Oscar contenders. One such contender is "American Hustle," a brilliantly made move about con artist in late 1970's early 80's American. The movie has reteam stars Bradley Cooper anbd Jennifer Lawrence from last year's "Silver Linnings Playbook" Directed David O'Russell has directed last year's film as well as this movie here. Both stars gave marvelous performances. Also in the movie and gave great performances are Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale. Bale's character is totally different from his role in Batman. Amy Adams gives a veryt sexy performance. she plays a stripper who dresses sexy and doesn't wear a bra. Lawrence also plays it brilliantly. I love the way the move has hanfle the subject matter as well as how the characters has acted. The film was released by Columbia Pictures, which for this film only they bring back that 1970's torch. Why didn't they go further than to add the background music to the torch. That will really make mty day.
Wasn't that good - as usual in movies the first part dragged. Jennifer Lawrence made the whole movie. I didn't think a lot of the actors they chose were appropriate. Could of done better here.
Very good movie. The action moved along well, no real slow parts. It keeps your interest throughout. The acting was superb.
Confusing but enjoyable! Oscars anyone?
One of my least favorite movies in recent memory. I'm pretty sure I yawned a few times during this movie. It dragged quite a bit. The only part I enjoyed was the homage to the 70's in the intro. Again, I seem to be an outlier on this, however, and I sometimes wonder if I'm watching the same movies everyone else is.
Boring and not much of a storyline-even my hubby thought it was slow and not worth the price of admission (uckily it was matinee)! If I had been alone I would have walked out and gone to see another movie!
