In this fictionalised account of the famous scandal, Bradley Cooper stars as FBI agent Richie DiMaso, who enlists con artist Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and his partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) to help him uncover a tangled web of crime and track down the mobsters and corrupt politicians behind it.

'American Hustle' is directed by David O. Russell, and also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, and Robert De Niro.

Total Film - 4/5 Stars

David O. Russell's con caper is the genuine article…

Early on in American Hustle, con artist Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) points out a fake Rembrandt to ambitious FBI man Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). “It’s so good that it’s real to everybody,” he explains. “Who’s the master: the painter or the forger?” Behind the camera, David O. Russell concocts his own skillful imitation, coming up with a wholesale homage to Martin Scorsese that is shot through with so much humour and style that nobody’s going to leave feeling cheated.

Worth watching

Reviewer: Flicker FanDate: 2014-03-18

Over hyped but still a pleasant and interesting film to watch. Reasonably funny and better than most of the other dross films now doing the rounds.

This was more boring than watching paint dry.

Reviewer: Russell ArmstrongDate: 2014-02-11

The slow start only added to the disappointment of a very dreary movie, which did not live up to the hype. Not even the calibre of the cast was able to lift this feature out of a dismal downward spiral. This was billed as a comedy but I did not find anything in it the slightest bit funny. I am sorry but I would urge you to watch something else.
