If only there was a time machine that would take me back to a time before I saw this movie.

PROS: Excellent cast & acting, decent music. CONS: Uninteresting, the scenes dragged, long sophomoric dialogue Going into the movie, you wanted it to be good. As it dragged on, you begged for...

American Hustle

Truly enjoyed this film. A Scorcese-like film without the brutality, nice. Enjoyed the intelligent script, the quick dialogue, and the genuine 70s look. I highly recommend this movie....

WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP

A Sting Wanna Be

The premise/story line here is excellent. As such, it should have resulted in an outstanding movie. Think "The Sting." However, IMHO, the movie suffers from poor editing. At least a half hour of...

The movie's hype was better than the film. The film was slow at best, in fact at one point it put me to sleep ( no joke). Would have walked out but am a big Christian Bale fan (Batman trilogy, et al)...

One of the most stylishly, flawlessly, executed motion pictures in years!

By HoodCritic1
This is a masterpiece from writer/director David O. Russell. He takes his game to a Scorsese-like level with this film about con-artists, federal agents, political corruption and mobsters and start...

Good acting but way too slow and drawn out

By Andreole
Have no idea why someone would use the word "comedy" in conjunction with this movie. There was very little of anything that was funny. The plot twist was unimaginative. The actors did a good job...

Delicious romp through the hair, clothes and attitudes of the late 1970's, with elements of "The Sting" thrown in for good measure

By David Edwards
