Yes it has got all the big names from Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper to Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence. Yes it has a budget of as much Dhoom 3 earned in the box office. However, all that doesn’t make American Hustle great. It is the steady underlying tone of its high flying characters trying to achieve something extremely simple: a good life.
 
There are films which lose touch with why its characters are behaving in a certain way and then others simply get too involved in the emotional side and forget that afilm is make belief. That is where something like American Hustle hits all the right notes.
 
David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, Three Kings, The Fighter) directs the film with a pop rapture. With over saturated colours and a lot of excess visual splendour, the film draws you in like no other.
 
Jennifer Lawrence is the new girl on the block. Amazing on screen, with an amazing charisma. She definitely plays the most important role and keeps things ticking. In a 1970s looking film, keeping things ticking is quite a big thing.
The plot is a comic romp through old style con artists and their methods with some great lines and a very heart warming feel to it. Overall, the film doesn’t take the entire Abscam operation by the FBI into account too seriously and frequently breaks away from it.
 
That said we are glad it does. After all a film like American Hustle needs to break a few rules, doesn’tit?
