American Gangster (Crime Drama 2007)

It's been a while since someone produced a great, solid film, but now we have one. This was a pretty sharp movie. It seemed a whole lot more realistic than Scarface, mainly in regards to plot, but the actual premise was very much the same. It does go to show that corruption is everywhere all of the time.

Both Denzel and Crowe performed up to their standard par, so that definitely helped out. I didn't notice anything bad about this film. It was engaging, interesting, and fairly realistic. I like gangster movies, but I think the crown still goes out to Mobsters or The Untouchables.
Rating - A
