A wonderfully acted film. David O. Russell does it again, spinning a hard-to-follow tale, much like his I Heart Huckabees (2004). He seems to have found is muse or is it, muses? I don't know, but Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence are back just like they were in Silver Linings Playbook (2012). The tale is tricky, but in the end, you can, somewhat , figure out what just happened. And that's the point. We're not supposed to really know who's conning who. Even if only part of this is factual, and I don't know where the fact ends and the fiction begins, this is a highly entertaining film that is a must-see. And remember, don't put any metal in the science oven.

I have to admit, I was expecting a bit more - the performances, for the most part, didn't wow me (though Jeremy Renner was a standout and Amy Adams - side boob and all - was excellent), but even with that letdown, American Hustle works because it really does transport you. The hair, the clothing, the music - it is all perfect and even if the story isn't "true" - it has enough element of reality to make it worth your time. Not the best movie of 2013 - but certainly one of the better ones.

It's appropriate that partying has a lot to do with the plot of American Hustle since it often feels like that one guest who overstays their welcome. It's still pretty good but it is longer than it should be and some plot threads remain unresolved despite the smugness of the script in the end. Jennifer Lawrence is not in it as much as the trailers implied but she easily gives the best performance. Amy Adams does a good job, mostly at being so dam sexy! God she was hot in this movie! Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper engage in a pissing contest while Jeremy Renner is the poor sap caught in the middle.

American Hustle ist eine Trickbetrüger Komödie, die höllisch gut unterhält - in jeder Hinsicht! David O. Russell zeigte immer grosse Zuneigung für Charaktere, die auf dem besten Weg sind, zu explodieren oder zu implodieren. Er unterhält seinen "persönlichen" Stab an Schauspielern und die gesamte Riege aus American Hustle sah man bereits in früheren Filmen von ihm. Er besitzt aber die Begabung, jedes Mal neue Seiten seiner Stars zu zeigen und zwar solche, die wir seit Ewigkeiten nicht mehr im Kino erleben durften! American Hustle erzählt die Geschichte von Irving und Sydney, die sich ineinander verlieben und gemeinsam Verbrechen begehen. Irving allerdings ist noch verheiratet mit Kindern. Seine Frau Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) ist genauso bedürftig wie verwundbar, aber auch passi...

"American Hustle" by Yojimbo

A pair of con artists are blackmailed into helping the FBI entrap corrupt politicians or face jail. David O. Russell's long con comedy drama was very well received upon its release and fans of Martin Scorsese will no doubt see his influence throughout the film. It has the flavour of a PG rated version of Casino as these amoral hustlers try to out manoeuvre each other while staying one step ahead of the organised criminals they are charged with duping. Its light-hearted tone makes for a few amusing moments, often revolving around Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence's car crash of a marriage and the general level of ineptitude displayed by this cut price Ocean's crew. But one thing the story didn't seem to have is any kind of narrative momentum. It just seemed to be a loose collection of c...

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...
