Best movie I've seen this year. I predict another academy award for Denzel.

PS Pee before the movie. Once it's underway, you won't want to leave your seat!

Is Hollywood going crazy? What is this nonsense of blacks portraying Italians? Like Whoppi Goldberg in Sister Act.

Valentina its based on a true story, Frank Lucas was brought up as Bumpy Johnson's protegee. Bumpy Johnson was always around italian mafisoso, so of course there principles and learnings rubbed off on him.

American Gangster is the best gangster movie since Goodfellas. Denzel was great portraying Frank Lucas. Denzel did not not try to glorify Frank Lucas. The plot was detailed, entertaining and based on a true story. "The Departed" was five min. shorter and "Scarface" had intermission and I have heard know one complaning about their length of time. I will see Denzel, Russel Crowe, and Ruby Dee at the Oscars!!
