This movie is not like other Ridley Scott movies. Neither Sci-Fi nor drama/action. This time he tried crime. And it totally worked. He chose a damn good script a great cast and a good crew.
The cinematography is astonishing it looked damn real. The production design and the costumes were great either. It was fitting perfect. Russell Crowe finally gives a great performance again and Denzel is just as always perfect. The rest of the cast is great too. Especially the mother of Frank Lucas (I don't know the name of the actress)
Ridley Scott took his job very serious again, and makes the movie look more perfect. The movie gets even better because it is based on a true story. That all makes more interesting. The final showdown was a bit outrages I think but still this is a great movie
