American Hustle Movie Reviews

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:Masand’s verdict ( CNN IBN)

O Russell knows how to you hook you to his quirky characters, but also laces his film with witty dialogues, and cinematography and production design that add real texture. I’m going with four out of five for American Hustle. It’s possibly the most fun I’ve had at the movies in a long, long time, and like the perfect restaurant meal it leaves you keen to make a second visit soon.

Ratings:4.5/5 Review By: Anupama Chopra Site:Star World ( Hindustan Times)

David O. Russell takes this material and performs the ultimate high-wire act – he constructs a film that makes you sad. It makes you laugh out loud. It makes you gasp and most of all, it delivers an adrenalin jolt of pleasure so acute that you are giddy for hours after its over. American Hustle is so much fun that I wonder if viewers will recognize what a staggering artistic achievement it is. Don’t miss this film. I’m going with four and a half stars.

David O Russell has thrown together the familiar with tremendous flair, making for a loud, brassy blast of a movie. A movie where the killer ensemble cast unmistakably looks to be having a better time than the audience. Their buoyant energy — and the look-at-me style the movie is soaked in — comes at us hard and fast and it’s best to grin through it.  But it’s because they’re such damned good actors that this sloppy hot dog of a film comes together. It’s not gourmet, but there’s enough goddamned relish for you not to care. I only wish he’d finished the ice-fishing story.

American Hustle amuses with irony, music and wit. It tantalizes with danger but doesn’t get violent. Its s**iness – there’s grinding in washrooms, on tables and laps – is electric and fun. Intelligent and good-looking, American Hustle could’ve lost 20 minutes to deliver an even sharper kick. But otherwise, fun for those who like vibrant humour – that’s extremely grey.

Ratings:4/5 Review By: Andre Borges Site:DNA

American Hustle with its subtle ‘Scorsese’ undertone, is another win for the Oscar nominated director. The movie hits all the right notes in terms of plot, casting, enough amount of comedy and drama and most importantly engaging the audience. American Hustle for the most part has a brilliant script and of course a top notch cast, but lots of movies have this combination. The real reason the movie shines brighter than the rest is the details and the other factors that enhance the movie as a whole. All in all, the film already dominating the award shows and getting rave reviews from festivals is a must-watch towering above an already existing pool of must watch movies.

In American Hustle, you can’t trust anyone! Be it con men, politicians, friends, FBI agents- and then most certainly you can’t trust the women with plunging necklines! We are transported to the early 70s where the ambitious FBI agent Richard ‘Richie’ DiMaso (Bradley Cooper) blackmails con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) into helping him run a sting that would pin down the corrupt politicians of New Jersey. But we can only wish it was that easy to get seasoned, corrupt politicians down in one shot. I suggest you spend your hard earned money on these con men and you won’t feel cheated!

The movie is about the hustle. The hustle to survive. This story keeps you hooked. The acting and characters are outstanding. The movie’s soundtrack transports you back in time. The cinematography is crisp and personal. Since this is a movie about con-artists, you will obviously be trying to figure how it is done. Word of advice, don’t try. The twist and the con job is sudden and rather fun when it happens. A definite must-watch movie with an amazing cast and brilliant performances. In the end, it’s all about the hustle.
