American Gangster is going to be awesome. Nuff said. Read the review:
After a long development process marked by fits and starts, American Gangster has finally shot its way onto the big screen courtesy of director Ridley Scott and screenwriter Steve Zaillian. The great ensemble cast is led by Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, last seen together on screen in the abysmal Virtuosity. Fortunately, the second time’s the charm for these two hugely talented Oscar winners. Based on Mark Jacobson’s New York Magazine article “The Return of Superfly,” American Gangster chronicles the true story of Frank Lucas (Washington), an African-American entrepreneur who rose to prominence in the 1960’s and ’70s in a field that was dominated by whites: heroin trafficking.
Employing the lessons he’d learned by working for legendary gangster Bumpy Johnson (Clarence Williams III) and his Mafia overlords, Frank uses his astute business acumen and propensity for guilt-free violence to rise to the top of his industry. The war in Vietnam provides Frank, who had a relative stationed in Bangkok, with the opportunity to beat his competition. Frank imports heroin directly from its point of origin (often smuggling it in the remains of dead U.S. soldiers), cutting out his competitors and offering his customers a product that hasn’t been degraded. It’s a business strategy that ultimately makes Frank more powerful and richer than La Cosa Nostra. Frank isn’t just the king of Harlem; he becomes the biggest heroin dealer in the country.
