GET THE POSTER
Director: David O. Russell
Starring: Christian Bale, Amy Adams

David O. Russell has gathered together a huge line up of A-list actors at the top of their game and thrown them in one movie to see what comes out the other end. Fortunately there are some magical and memorable moments, but as a whole the film falls short in living up to it's hype. Don't believe the hype. Just enjoy it for what it is.

Con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) teams up with Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) in various rackets around a 1970's Jersey set. In steps a hot shot FBI agent played by Bradley Cooper who forces them on a sting to bring down any bent politician and criminal he can get his hands on. But the line between good and bad isn't easy to define

The characters in this are the best. Christian Bale is beautifully disgusting and Bradley Cooper's perm is to dye for. Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence also add some class and crass to the whole 1970s vibe and Jeremy Renner knows how to get the job done.

Nobody is going to say this is a bad movie, it has it's good bits and the plot ending is clever (although I picked it). It's just that with so much talent it could have been outstanding. Strangely it was marketed as a comedy, but I felt a little awkward during some scenes not knowing if they were serious or over the top. Maybe that in itself is an American Hustle.
