Borderline 10.
An 8/10 doesn't usually mean a dissapointment from me. In this case it does. It offers nothing really new to the genre. Its really made, good entertainment. No way this gets nominated for best picture.
American Gangster, grade: A

Long title, long film. Great title, very good film. So rejoice, rejoice oh yee die hard Malick fans (you know who you are). This retelling of a classic and often told American legend is one of the most noteworthy pictures of the year. Casey Affleck all but lunges for the supporting actor awards in a startling performance of tragic, eerie obsessiveness. I for one didn't know he was this good. The Assassination of Jesse James is compulsively watchable with its enlongated lyrical prose that I'm willing to guess that oh, no one who loved 3:10 to Yuma will love this. For me the film (flawed by length and a slightly pretentious structure in its middle section) is a winner for performances, direction, cinematography, and for the ideas put forward by the smart screenplay. As much as we love our heroes, we really hate our villians. Just ask Robert Ford.
Fantastic. I love it. Dont take kids to see this!
uneventful and mediocre although well performed
