Do The Hustle

The actors make this movie happen. All were stellar in their roles. Story topic isn't new. What was new and great was how they approached and wrote the screenplay. This could have been a predictable played out story but it was executed in character development not gratuitous violence. In fact there was virtually no violence in this film which could have been an easy crutch. Well done!

American Bust

This movie is a bust. Tired story line, taken from a classic made over 30 years ago. Total bore. The only thing that was interesting was Amy Adams showing her cleavage all through the movie, and that wasn't very eye appealing at all. Save your money.

Get Hustled

I love these con-game movies. I love that we know what's going on, but we don't know what's going on. Someone is always getting conned or hustled and the acting is very good. For me, Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale are the standouts. The rest of the cast is also very good and the movie is a good solid ride. One thing I didn't really buy was the backstory with Cooper's character. It seemed a bit 'shoved in' to the plot. I feel like they could have let us into that world with a few extra establishing scenes just to make it feel a little more credible. I was expecting the cinematography and the sets to be a bit more styled, but I don't think it quite got there for me. It still felt a touch too modern for me. Other people may think differently about it, but for me there was something missing—It didn't take away from the story, however.

Played a little like "Argo" stateside

American Hustle was incredibly entertaining. The cast had the most amazing chemistry with each playing their respective roles to precision. The direction, costumes, cinematography, locations, screen play, and editing were a perfect fit. JLaw, Amy Adams, Christian Bale, and Anderson Cooper might be taking home some gold statues...

Intelligent and entertaining

Lots of levels to this movie...Intelligent, interesting and emotional . All of the cast were amazing...especially the girls. The script and their acting skills really made you empathize with each character. The words were action packed and really commanded your attention. I expected this movie to be simple....but it was much more complex! I loved this movie!
