Given the lineup of Russell Crowe, Denzel Washington and Ridley Scott, could this movie fail? No
Weighing in at almost 3 hours (extended edition) one could be forgiven for thinking that American Gangster would be a bit of a drag but no, it moves along quite nicely pacing out the action against the story. The story itself is very hard to believe in the end but it's Hollywood vs facts again. Crowe and Washington, as always, deliver the goods even though they aren't onsceen together too much (no DeNiro/Pacino moment really). One of Ridley's greatest (no mean feat!).
