Seen American Gangster? What Did You Think?

What could be better than a gritty gangster flick starring two of the best actors in the world, Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe, and directed by one of film's legends, Ridley Scott. American Gangster has that wanna-be Oscar winner clout to it, but is it really worthy of Best Picture? Did Ridley Scott direct another masterpiece or another dud? How does American Gangster rank up against the other gangster film greats from history?
Just drop by, leave a comment, and create some discussion! To fuel the fire, I enjoyed American Gangster quite a bit, but I wouldn't call it a masterpiece or a dud by any means. Both Denzel and Russell were amazing and the film had some great moments, it just didn't seem like a perfectly polished work of art. I definitely won't forget it and will probably watch it numerous times later on, establishing it as a definitely great film but nothing that should win an Oscar.
