American Gangster is one of those films that I was put off buying, on the assumption it would be a 'blood and guts', 'shoot 'em up' type of film, and indeed my heart sank when I watched the opening scene. I needn't have worried though, AG is far above most other recent films of this genre, with a depth to it (allowed for no doubt by being based on a true story) that tends to be missing from many such films nowadays, where special effects are seen as a substitute for a decent plot.

As other reviwers have noted, it's a long film, but one that keeps the viewer hooked right to the end. From being a film purchased for no other reason than it was cheap AG has gone straight into my 'keeper' section and I can't really offer a higher recommendation than that!

American Gangster is one of my favourite films of the last decade, brilliant performances from both Denzel Washington as the ruthless Frank Lucas and Russell Crowe as the down on his luck cop. I am sure everyone knows the story of the film, but it was masterfully told, the film was paced very well, letting you get to know the 2 main characters without ever really slowing down or dragging too much.

Looks really good on Blu Ray and the extras are worth the price alone.

A must have in the collection, five stars from me.

Format: DVD
this is quite simply one of the best films of 2007. it's a bit slow, but the story is really compelling and the acting is excellent from both russell crowe and denzel washington, who let's face it, is quite simply incapable of ever giving a bad performance no matter what he happens to be in, even the otherwise dreadfull virtuosity which previously teamed up washington with crowe had good performances from both washington and a then unknown russell crowe.
in fact, the acting is excellent from everyone in the cast, the other standout goes to josh brolin as a dirty cop on washington's payroll. the only slight fault i can find is you can't help feeling you've seen it all before. crowe's character at times comes off like serpico, and the soundtrack feels like a martin scorsese movie.
this is one of ridley scott's best films and will be remembered i think in years to come along with other classic ridley scott films like alien, blade runner and gladiator, and more than makes up for the rather dull a good year.

Format: Blu-ray
British born director Ridley Scott brings this story inspired by actual events about a heroin empire headed up by Frank Lucas who was the driver for the previous inner city crime boss "Bumpy Johnston" played by Clarence Williams the third; who suddenly dies and Frank exploits the ensuing power vacuum set in the 1970's this violent gritty 2007 production headed up by Russell Crowe and Denzel Washington in an all-star cast bring to the screen the two sides to the "American Dream" which was the tag-line to the film, in all its shiny, seedy glory.

This 50GB region free disc comes with two cuts of the movie the 157 minute theatrical cut and the 176 minute unrated version the film is encode using VC-1 codec in full 1080p resolution in the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85.1 and the audio track is English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (48 kHz 24 bit) along with French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese DTS 5.1 audio tracks there are the following subtitles: - English for the hard of Hearing, French , Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, German, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Korean, Traditional Mandarin, Norwegian and Swedish.
Doing the comparison with the Blu-ray and the DVD released at the same time the Blu-ray has a better look than the DVD, I think the director was trying to give the production a documentary look and feel with quite a bit of grain to the look of the picture where the Blu-ray comes into its own is the audio track the dialogue is easier to understand along with the sound of the violence whether it's the sound of gunfire or the screaming of a torture victim or explosions the audio has a very realistic sound to it, a great addition to a crime fan film library...

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 27 July 2012
Format: DVD
This is the true story of 1970s Harlem drug lord Frank Lucas who submarined the Mafia gangs by importing his heroin uncut direct from Thailand, and thus able to corner the drug market with cheaper prices. On his trail is Richie Roberts, one of the few honest cops operating out of his corrupt department.

American Gangster may turn out to be one of the most divisive films in Ridley Scott's cannon, gone are the visual traits that are beloved by so many of his fans, and in comes straight forward story telling, heavy on plot and filmed as a near to a documentary style as Scott has ventured thus far in a mainstream picture. I have no doubt that cries of Scott merely dipping his toes in crime picture waters from the past will be used against him, and for sure there is nothing remotely new in the Steve Zaillian screenplay here to make anyone sit up and take notice. But I applaud Scott for making, what on the page looked to have been a run of the mill crime caper, into a riveting character study. Full of 70s fashions and police procedural gusto, American Gangster lifts itself above the average crime capers of yesteryear because it boasts two of the best actors working today in the lead roles.

Russell Crowe plays Richie Roberts with much restraint, and it's thru this restraint that the character becomes more believable, Roberts has his issues for sure (notably of the romantic kind), but his unflinching deep rooted belief in honesty gives the character an earthy aura, and it's down to Crowe that the character succeeds on the screen. Taking the honours here, though, is Denzel Washington as Frank Lucas, full of zest and charming menace, he infuses Lucas with credibility as both a caring family man and also a merciless crime lord. Great performances, both.
