In comparison, some reviewers were more critical of American Gangster. Jonathan Crocker of Time Out London was polarized with the film, criticizing its aesthetics.
In his review, he wrote, "Scott's meticulous aesthetics can't touch the urban texture and deep focus of The French Connection , The Godfather , Serpico and Prince of the City — all looming heavily in intertextual nods.
Similarly, Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly gave the film a 'C-' grade, expressing that American Gangster is "never dull, but it could have used more good old-fashioned melodramatic intrigue.
Slant Magazine journalist Nick Schager harshly criticized the film, giving the film a one out of four stars. Schager remarked that the film was "dumb as a rock", and that it was "far too convinced of its import to be any fun.
That shoulder-shimmying swagger is rarely seen, and the brand-classic robes of American Gangster sit on him heavily. In an interview with MSNBC , Lucas expressed his excitement about the film and amazement at Denzel Washington's portrayal.
Roberts criticized the portrayal of Lucas, describing it as "almost noble". Sterling Johnson Jr. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed by US District Judge Colleen McMahon.
While McMahon noted that the intertitle that appears at the end of the film, stating that Lucas' collaboration led to the arrest of many corrupt DEA agents, was "wholly inaccurate", in that Lucas' cooperation did not lead to the convictions, and admonished that "It would behoove a major corporation like Universal which is owned by a major news organization, NBC not to put inaccurate statements at the end of popular films", she stated that the film failed to meet legal standards of defamation because it failed to "show a single person who is identifiable as a DEA agent".
Many of Lucas' other claims, as presented in the film, have also been called into question, such as being the right-hand man of Bumpy Johnson , rising above the power of the Mafia and Nicky Barnes , and that he was the mastermind behind the Golden Triangle heroin connection of the s.
Ron Chepesiuk, a biographer of Frank Lucas, deemed the story as a myth. Associated Press entertainment writer Frank Coyle noted that "this mess happened partly because journalists have been relying on secondary sources removed from the actual events.
American Gangster earned various awards and nominations, in categories ranging from recognition of the film itself to its screenplay and music, to the performances of Ruby Dee and Denzel Washington.
Prior to the film's release, it was observed as a candidate for the Academy Awards based on its style and the performances of its actors, including the possibility of an Academy Award for Best Director for Ridley Scott.
The film was recognized as a candidate for best film by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and the Broadcast Film Critics Association.

He wears nice clothes and drives fancy cars and all that, so if that means glorifying it I guess that's the case.
But for me I was looking at the arc of the character, and he don't look that glorious right now.
Scott loves his bad guy too much. And by turning Lucas into a figure who seduces instead of repels, an object of directorial fetishism and a token of black resistance, however hollow, he encourages us to submit as well.
Part of this is structural and economic: blood and nihilism are always better sells than misery and hopelessness.
Yet there's also a historical dimension, because when Lucas strolls down a fast-emptying Harlem street after putting a bullet into another man's head and the camera pulls back for the long view, you are transported into the realm of myth.
Once, another gunman, or the director, might have taken direct aim at Lucas. But the world belongs to gangsters now, not cowboys. United States portal Film portal Law portal.
