5.0 out of 5 stars I admit she is sexy Jan. 1 2014
Knowing the pedigree of a movie, not only who the stars are, but who the director is, who the writers are, can easily help us separate the mutts from the pure breeds in the movie world. And if the pedigree is one of huge prior success of many of these elements then that augurs well for the success of this movie.

David O Russell directed the highly regarded The Fighter from two years ago which secured 7 Academy Award nominations, Academy Awards for Christian Bale and Melissa Leo,and a nomination for Amy Adams.

He wrote and directed Silver Linings Playbook one of the outstanding movies of 2011/12, which secured an Academy Award for Jennifer Lawrence last year, and a total of four acting nominations including Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, and nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay.

American Hustle reunites Russell, De Niro, Bale, Lawrence and Adams from these previous two hits, and continues the outstanding pedigree displayed in those movies.

Loosely based on the 1970s Abscam scandal, this is a multi-layered entertaining movie, involving a con man and his mistress, played by Bale and Adams, an emotionally tempestuous wife played by Jennifer Lawrence, organized crime elements represented by De Niro and others, and law enforcement interests played by Bradley Cooper.

I remember an interview Amy Adams gave two years where she complained that a journalist wrote that she did not have a sexual image at which she took great umbrage. Perhaps this was due to characters she played such as the Princess in Enchanted, or the nun in Doubt. She lays that particular criticism to rest in this movie playing a very sexual character, who wears skin clinging outfits, and no bra, ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enchantingly Good Aug. 2 2014
Hype towards a movie can easily ruin your experience with it, time and time again. You see all the awards it's been getting, amazing quotes from critics, and your expectations are set way too high. Then, when you actually see it, you're totally disappointed, and expected something much better. That's exactly what happened when I first saw "American Hustle". I liked it a lot, but not as much as other people seemed too. When I decided to see it a second time, I tried to put all the hype aside, and I enjoyed the movie considerably more.

The film follows Irving Rosenfeld, played by Christian Bale, a con-man who runs a corrupt loan business alongside his seductive partner Sydney (Amy Adams). When busted by FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper), he is obliged to work together with him to lineup the arrests of several other people including congressmen and mafia members.

With awesome costumes and music choices that set you right in the time period, the movie is enchanting from the start. It may be a tad too long, but the cast of off-beat and interesting characters make up for that in the end. Christian Bale is certainly the standout, and seeing his performance a second time solidified that. Go in with a clear head, and you will most-definitely enjoy it. Rated R for language and sexual content, "American Hustle" is enchantingly good.

Acting was great, but this was just another movie that was far too long, with no REAL climax or decent story. The actors deserve their nominations and awards for their performances, but that's as far as the compliments go for this one. I think my hopes were too high!

Primo Levi always makes the reader part of the narrative; an excellent account of so called human history in a time of which we all and our heirs should for ever be ashamed

Best movie I've seen in a long time. Liked all the characters, even though there was something really dislikable about all of them.

Complicated plot, but neat story. You have to really pay attention to this one, not just casually watch. Captures the era nicely.

Amy Adams is stunning!

Great characters, great acting. I had a hard time seeing Christian Bale with a comb over and a pot, but he sold it.
