"American Gangster" is a powerful drama about the rise and fall of a drug overlord. Denzel Washington is excellent as Frank Lucus, a drug kinpin who bought high quality drugs from Asia and sell them at haf the price. Josh Brolin is the dirty cop who theatern Lucus and his family. Russell Crowe is the cop who brough Lucus down and later help him go after the cops. This is a first rate crime thriller which is driected by Ridley Scott. Washington almost certain to get an Oscar nomination. Russell is excellent. Matter of fact, both actors did very well. "American Gangster" is one of the best movies of the year.

movie seemed a little too long, not enough interaction between the two stars just not as good as expected.

I especially liked that this was set in the 70s.

Will win oscars - how many open to question - denzel washington and russell crowe are truly believable and excellent as usual - check out an aged clarence williams iii (he played lincoln hayes in the mod squad) as denzel's mobster father right at the beginning - almost a cameo but interesting to see him again - that this movie was based on a true story makes it even more interesting

My husband and I thought this was a very good movie. We would encourage adults who like action, and don't mind the violence that goes along with it, to see this. Denzel is great as usual.
