AMER­I­CAN GANG­STER

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Film Reviews - DC

Di­rected by Ri­d­ley Scott. Star­ring Den­zel Wash­ing­ton, Rus­sell Crowe, Cuba Good­ing Jr, Josh Brolin, Chi­we­tel Ejio­for, Ar­mand As­sante, Ruby Dee 16 cert Scott is back to his best with this saga de­tail­ing the ef­forts of Frank Lu­cas, an African-Amer­i­can gang­ster of the 1970s, to im­port heroin di­rectly from Asia and sell it cheap on the streets. Wash­ing­ton is dig­ni­fied in the lead role and Crowe is at­trac­tively di­shev­elled as the cop pur­su­ing him. The ex­tended cut on the fine two-disc edi­tion fleshes out the story sat­is­fac­to­rily.
