  • This movies cast has lots of big names and lots of speaking roles, it is well casted I believe though and no character really seems to fail
  • The storyline is amazing considering it is based on a true story and the ending which I did not want to ruin leaves you very satisfied with that what goes on

      American Gangster is a American crime film based on the life of a black gangster in Harlem named Frank Lucas. It also has the parallel story of a detective named Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe).

      Lucas (Denzel Washington) is the new crimelord and town and begins directly importing heroin from Vietnam via the use of US planes.

      He becomes the most powerful man in Harlem going higher than the Italians and everyone.


      Roberts is one of the last honest cops in town, he even turns in 1 million dollars that he found in the back of a car.

      His honesty lands him the job as part of a special investigation unit to bust the big drug lords of NY.

      He is able to find a group of cops who are honest and work with him.

      The story begins to intertwine as Roberts begins ...


      • to discover that Lucas is the one that he needs to bust and as Lucas fights to keep his head a float in the changing of times.

        Washington and Crowe are great in this movie, they never seem to fail in difficult roles and they bring

        this movie together.

        This movies cast has lots of big names and lots of speaking roles, it is well casted I believe though and no character really seems to fail.

        The storyline is amazing considering it is based on a true story and the ending which I did not want to ruin leaves you very satisfied with that what goes on.

        This is one of those need to sees, for a good crime thriller.
