One hopes that black America will have nothing to do with it. Anthony Quinn. Scott is something of a romantic at heart. His film is nowhere near as jaded or as hard-bitten as the '70s films such as The French Connection or Serpico that it hopes to echo.
Sukhdev Sandhu. Here's a startlingly original true-life story told in an oddly unoriginal way. And that attempt at instant classic status in the title doesn't quite convince.
It's got no more dark grandeur than American Idol. Peter Bradshaw. American Gangster is a modestly flawed yet consistently entertaining crime drama.
Richard Propes. A highly entertaining crime epic that may feel a little familiar, but succeeds thanks to the star power of its two leads.
Micheal Compton. Something akin to a time warp, stepping back into a time of higher filmmaking integrity and more personal visions.
Matthew Lucas. Though it's certainly admirable to aim high, it's like Frank Lucas himself says: "Either you're somebody, or you ain't nobody.
Ali Gray. It's minutes long, but immerses its audience with its twists and intricacies as it plays out and considers the logistics and consequences of crime and police corruption, with a plethora of show-stealing performances from the cast.

But when his boss suddenly dies, Frank exploits the opening in the power structure to build his own empire and create his own version of the American Dream.
Through ingenuity and a strict business ethic, he comes to rule the inner-city drug trade, flooding the streets with a purer product at a better price.
Lucas outplays all of the leading crime syndicates and becomes not only one of the city's mainline corrupters, but part of its circle of legit civic superstars.
Richie Roberts is an outcast cop close enough to the streets to feel a shift of control in the drug underworld. Roberts believes someone is climbing the rungs above the known Mafia families and starts to suspect that a black power player has come from nowhere to dominate the scene.
Both Lucas and Roberts share a rigorous ethical code that sets them apart from their own colleagues, making them lone figures on opposite sides of the law.
The destinies of these two men will become intertwined as they approach a confrontation where only one of them can come out on top. Ridley Scott. John Hawkes , Steven Zaillian.
