Academy Award® winners Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe team with director Ridley Scott (Gladiator) for an epic story as powerful as it is true.
Armed with ruthless, street-wise tactics and a strict sense of honor, crime boss Frank Lucas (Washington) rules Harlem’s chaotic drug underworld.
When outcast cop Richie Roberts (Crowe) sets out to bring down Lucas’s multi-million dollar empire, it plunges both men into a legendary confrontation. American Gangster is “a brutal and brilliant film” (Pete Hammond, Maxim)
Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) doesn’t like it when you make someone bleed on his $25,000 alpaca rug. Watch how he handles the situation in one of the more creative kills in American Gangster!
