Harlem thug Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) wants very much to be Somebody, and his ticket to the top is heroin, imported from Vietnam with the help of the military there and a large contingent of dirty cops here. Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe) is a street-wise cop who makes it his business to track down the man who's running this drug racket.

This was the longest 157 minutes I've ever spent in a movie theatre. One of the problems with this film was that neither the hero (Richie) nor the villain (Frank) was a sympathetic character and I didn't care how it ended (although the epilogue shocked me). Gum-chomping Richie admits he's not a fit father and has no qualms about roughing people up in the line of duty. Frank is a slick, soulless fiend with no regard for human life. To say this movie is violent would be an understatement, but after watching so much depravity and cruelty, one becomes jaded and I stopped caring altogether.

The biggest weakness was that the two stars share the screen for a only few minutes. I was waiting and waiting to see these acting titans play off each other, and when it finally happened, it was disappointing. Washington definitely out-acts Crowe in a flashier role, and for his memorable performance, I gave the movie three stars. Very much a guy-film.

The film was good but as stated by others other gangster films did over shadow it. But the way Denzel Washington played his character as a bad guy but almost dignified.... made the movie great i would rather watch the extended version because of its ending, however the movie was great.

This is a good, standard (maybe slightly above average) gangster film. Unfortunately, there has been too many great films in this genre that are still superior in many ways, that "American Gangster" does not impress. "The Godfather" and "Goodfellas" are examples that still show more originality and raw power. "American Gangster" unfortunately, lacks a strong vision and all too often feels like it tries to emulate these older masterpeices. It simply does not stand well on its own when it is inevitably compared to these classics. Not one of Scott's best.

I'm tired of hearing people say that all good movies come from the 70s. Blaxploitation (aka Urban Action flicks) films still comes around from time to time & here's one good example. Starring Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington in a almost all-black cast film about real life heroin dealer Frank Lucas. Its a great story sets in the early 70s in Harlem and its the kind of movie that definitely deserve a second watch, after seeing it in theaters. Glad I bought that one.

Les histoires autour des faits vécus revêtes toujours un caractère particulier. Denzel Washington y joue un rôle assez percutant d'une personne qui ne recule devant rien pour assurer son confort et celui de ces proches.Le jeu de Russel Crowe est aussi très crédible et admirablement bien joué.

I received the combo pack and just watched it. Movie is great. problem is Blu Ray did not work and the digital download code was not included. So i actually only got a DVD out of the deal which is what i wanted the least in the pack. LAME.
