All round quality! Denzel and Russell on fine form!,
This review is from: American Gangster [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
How on earth was this film overlooked by the awards panels? I am at a loss to understand this. Great acting, magnificent direction and a fascinating story all points to major awards success but why did it not get the acclaim it deserved? I loved every minute of this and is right up there with other gangster films - it just oozes quality from the outset. Denzel and Russell are perfectly cast, the support is fantastic and even has a great soundtrack!
To top all of that, the Blu Ray has hours of extras and it is really interesting to see the background story and just how well researched it all was. Probably my favourite film from Ridley Scott - excellent in every way! Enjoy!
