American Hustle Movie Review

American Hustle (A)

Length: - 2 hrs. 19 min.

American Hustle is a masterpiece, a work well performances, excellent set up and dialogues. Just 10 minutes into the film, you will realize that this is a classy one. Inspired from the true events as the film claims that some of this actually happened. Set in the 70’s in New York, it’s actually closely experiencing the things which existed at that time in a social way. “Everyone hustle to survive” is the tagline of the film, numerous witty one liners with a decent plot makes this one an engaging watch. Plot is strong enough to hold your breath till the end.

David O Russell- Director of the film never takes single wrong step. Length of “American Hustle” is appropriate, doesn’t make you feel lengthy or overstretched. Abscam which is a short for “Arab Scam”, it is from there the film is being originated. American hustle is about a rogue FBI agent forcing a mysterious big laundry owner and his mistress to help him into the case. Whether be it drugs, cleavage or get ups this movie has everything to satisfy your desire with surprising interesting narrative.

Amy Adams is stunning, she utilizes her feminism in an accurate way. I personally find her one step ahead in most of the scenes. Christian Bale get up is different from other films. He is playing a much heavy weight than from his normal life, having just few hairs on his head. He uses special arrangement to fix that which takes a long time. Christian looks so realistic and plays in an amateur manner. Jennifer Lawrence is a charming, short tempered wife; who has no good reason to give his husband divorce. Bradley Cooper get up is normal in a role of a rogue FBI agent, he is fine in his part. Overall, American Hustle is a film which should not be missed.

Verdict: - Simply Superb

Ratings: -   4 / 5 Stars
