Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about American Hustle.
Salon.com - 10/10 by Andrew O'HehirA work of tremendous confidence and dazzling showmanship that may just be a delirious movie-as-drug-high or may, if you choose to read it this way, contain a level of commentary about the nature of America and the illusioneering of Hollywood.
TV Guide - 10/10 by Perry SeibertAmerican Hustle may be full of people faking, but Russell is the real deal.
SSG Syndicate - 10/10 by Susan GrangerDavid O. Russell has crafted an unexpectedly zany, tantalizing crowd-pleaser that's relentlessly entertaining.
Grantland - 10/10 by Wesley MorrisThe actors give the movie different sorts of mania.
San Jose Mercury News - 10/10 by Randy MyersEven with a freewheeling style, "Hustle" is never aimless. All that flash, sass and canny sense for detail hit the jackpot ...
The List - 10/10 by Emma SimmondsA sexy, rollicking caper set in the late 70s which expertly infuses its criminality with both class and character, the latter delivered via a thick vein of askew humour.
ABC News Radio - 10/10 by David BlausteinDirector and co-writer David O. Russell deserves all the credit in the world for creating a story, characters and environment in which his actors could truly get lost.
Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Michael PhillipsThe whole movie, a feast of ensemble wiles and stunning hair, is juicy, funny and alive.
Richard Roeper.com - 10/10 by Richard RoeperAmerican Hustle is the best time I’ve had at the movies all year, a movie so perfectly executed, such wall-to-wall fun, so filled with the joy of expert filmmaking on every level I can’t imagine anyone who loves movies not loving THIS movie.
RogerEbert.com - 10/10 by Christy LemireDavid O. Russell out-Scorseses Martin Scorsese with American Hustle, a '70s crime romp that's ridiculously entertaining in all the best ways.
