Review: American Gangster

Wow, what more could you ask? The kid from a poor family makes it big, family values prevail (at least until everyone goes to prison), a brother stands up to The Man, good guys win in the end.

OK, I liked the movie. I really did. The only thing that kept running through my mind, though, was part of an interview with the real Frank Lucas, in which he said that most of the movie was complete fabrication. Oh well. Still a good cops-and-drug dealers movie, not too violent but not for the kiddies either. Solid 3, maybe 3-1/2 on a 1 to 5 scale.
