  • The most interesting development that really made Frank come into the spotlight of attention according to the movie, was when he came to a boxing match wearing a chichila suit and hat, and was seated closer to the ring than that of any other crime syndicate in the general area

      American Gangster, directed by Ridley Scott is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for violence, pervasive drug content and language, nudity and sexuality. The original released date was November 2, 2007 for United States audience. This movie falls in the genre of Crime/Drama/Thriller and stars Denzel Washington

      as Frank Lucas, Russell Crowe as Detective Richie Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Huey Lucas and Josh Brolin as Detective Trupo.

      This movie takes an inside look at one of America’s most notorious druglord and murderer in that of Frank Lucas. Telling how he started from humble beginnings to becoming one of the most feared men in the Americas.

      Not at all what I was expecting it to be, but, to credit the movie, I guess using excessive and graphic details to bring this story across would have worked against it. Instead, we were basically introduced to the man…documentary style.

      The most interesting development ...

      that really made Frank come into the spotlight of attention according to the movie, was when he came to a boxing match wearing a chichila suit and hat, and was seated closer to the ring than that of any other crime syndicate in the general area. And for a man
      who doesn’t usually bask in the spotlight, this unwanted attention was what started his downfall.

      The two main characters where excellently played by two of hollywoods best in the business. Apart from the documentary style story telling, I was satisfied with the depiction process. It really is a fantastic and interesting movie.
