The costumes and props are highly enjoyable, and the female performances not bad. The biggest hole in the movie is Bale, who doesn't even convince me as a schlub from the Bronx, let alone as a con artist slick enough to convince people he's anything else. The script suggests that the character has the kind of charisma that makes people want to do whatever he says, but for me at least, it never translated to the screen.

Very good. Every single actor did an outstanding job with their role. Amy Adams just wow! Bradley Cooper acts on a whole new level I haven't seen before. Jennifer Lawrence, amazing as always. Christian Bale is outstanding. Highly recommend. It's a drama. There are some humorous parts. It shows the reasoning behind con artist while telling a story.

The stellar cast lives up to its fullest potential with some of the finest acting of 2013, the soundtrack is topnotch and retro and David O. Russell's direction is magic. I loved every entertaining minute of this film, although its characters do get a little annoying and loud sometimes.

Good Story, Great Acting

I really enjoyed this movie. The story was fun but the acting, music and costumes made the movie. Every actor in this movie was phenomenal and they all earned every acting nomination they got and more. The music and the costumes were great and made the movie fun to listen to and watch. The story got a little slow in a few places but the amazing acting and great costumes kept thing interesting at those parts. Christian Bale had to hands down be my favorite actor in the movie. He played the part perfect, you wanted to dislike him but he had just enough redeeming qualities to make you have like him. And with all the make up and wardrobe you almost for got you were watching Christian Bale. The rest of the cast was great as well, Amy Adams was incredible as con-artist Sydney and Jennifer Lawre...

A actots movie - great cast good film

about a conman and woman who get caught and are forced to set up others to avoid prison.
Brilliant cast. This is what i call actors film, as its all about the acting and screenplay. When it comes to who is the best actor robert de nero usually gets mentioned but christian bale again proves here why he is one if not the best actor, de nero also has a tiny part in this movie. bradley cooper is great another actor who is getitng better and better. jennifer lawrence was brilliant she has such a great future. amy adams was also great as well as the rest of the cast.
Its very much a talky character driven movie if your looking for action or a oceans eleven style movie its not one of those. there's no real action to it. but there is some great scenes and funny little moments that you will need...

American Hustle - One of the best films in years!

“Some of this actually happened.”

From this first inter-title, David O. Russell’s new crime comedy-drama American Hustle(2013) promised two and a half hours of the twisted, the practically anarchic, but most especially, the absolutely absurd - and in the best way possible. Despite its late arrival to the Oscar scene (along with Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street) and its being overshadowed by Steve McQueen’s long-awaited 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle proves worthy of every nomination and accolade to date and lives up to its enormous hype. It is one of the best films to hit cinemas in years.

American Hustle - based on the true story of the FBI ABSCAM operation - follows conman Irving Rosenfield (Christian Bale) and con-woman Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) after they are forced to work fo...
