American Hustle (2013)
Genre: Crime, Drama
I know a lot of people loved this movie but when I first watched it I was greatly disappointed. My friend and I chose this at random thinking it was going to be something similar to other crime / con films but by the end of it, my friend asked me: “Why did that thing win Awards?”. Personally, I was enjoying it until the end, it was disappointing. The cast is sublime and Jennifer Lawrence plays a fantastic role plus her “dancing section” was the most hilarious section (and best section of the movie) :P. Did this film create a 1970’s atmosphere? Yes. Did it have an amazing cast? Yes. Did I leave the Cinema wanted to tell others to watch it and feeling great? No. It’s a film worth watching and from a Film student point of view…It is good. It really was not my cup of tea but if you want to watch a crime drama set in the 1970’s…than this is the film for you.
I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
