Ridley Scott Stany Zjednoczone, 2007

JCPJD's rating of the film American Gangster

All the cliches, well executed. It zips along, the characters are fun, the period is dynamic and it does chart that moment when organised crime went from Goodfellas to the modern gang structure of today, which is an interesting shift. It's a light film, slick and entertaining for the most part. And that's fine.
