American Gangster Movie Review by Jeff (6/19/2008)

I can't tell you how long I have been waiting for Ridley Scott's new movie American Gangster to arrive on the screen. I was awaiting the arrival of two of America's powerhouse actors, Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe to dual it out.

But what it does offer us is another brilliant piece of filmmaking from Ridley Scott who...

American Gangster Movie Review by Jesse (12/1/2007)

With a film of this genre, there are many conventions that are usually explored. Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola (being the masters of this genre) have built a standard, I think, of what works and does not work in a crime drama. In American Gangster however, Ridley Scott takes the film in other directions that...
