American Gangster...best Movie Of The Past 5 Years

Sun Nov 04, 2007 7:56 am

I just got back from seeing it, and wow, what a film. For all the shit that Hollywood churns out nowadays, this was a gem. Denzel delivered a masterful performance as usual, lots of titty action, violence, and a great plot.
Russell Crowe was great in it as well.

I recommend everyone goes to see it. Amazing film.

Allright I'm going, sounds like a good movie and a flashy cast as well.

The shooting scene in the apartment complex was awesome!!!

That was excellent.
The opening sequence, with a man being burned alive and then shot repeatedly made for a great hook too.

Just watched it tonight. Got back a few hours ago. Great movie. Possibly one of Denzel's best in his career, and that's saying something. The shooting scene in the apartment complex was awesome!!! 6 stars out of 5!!!!

It was a very good movie. And I agree leap years ahead of the crap coming out of Hollywood these days.

I saw it last night and was very impressed with the movie. I'm quite jumpy and well, just go see the movie.. That C-130 was going through a heavy D check  Silly. I looked up KA760, but I found nothing on it. Is it a real tail number?

Just give them the Oscar now. Nothing that has come out compares to it, and nothing that is coming out for the future looks like it will compare to it.

It's the best film of the past 5 years.

Just saw this movie the other night. I thought it was a great movie, however I felt is was kind of slow for hte length of it. Still really good comparitively. Armond Asanti always plays a great Mafia Chieftan!

Is T.I. actually a decent actor?

I will probably see this sometime this weekend, I'm just wondering did he fit in with the rest of the cast?

Are you kidding? Denzel could fart, and win an oscar! LOL! Denzel is a hell of an actor, and just about every movie that comes out has me in front of the screen. I still love "Man On Fire", and the scene with the guy on the car.

That's what he's saying, just without the LOL and the somewhat animalic language.
