American Gangster - Comments and Message Board

American Gangster is an excellent film. It's structured well, has excellent photography and direction and the performances are excellent. I even thought that Russell Crowe was better than Denzel! It's a slow burner of a film but burns very well with a corker of a final half hour. Of course it's hard to not compare this crime drama against the mighty crime kings by Scorcese such as Goodfellas and Casino and in fairness, they are better films. However, American Gangster provides an excellent alternative to them. 8/10
