VIEWED: American Hustle

In case your scroll down doesn't work, here's what I said about the trailer for American Hustle:

Is there any role that Christian Bale cannot fully embrace and make brilliant?... It's been a while since I've reviewed a trailer but I can say with confidence that the trailer for American Hustle is one of the best I've seen in recent memory... Oh, and the wife says we'll be seeing it tonight.

We saw it.  Bale was brilliant.  Renner was brilliant. Adams was brilliant.  Lawrence was not quite as brilliant but still very good. Cooper was Cooper, which is good but not brilliant. Louis C.K. was Louis C.K. which is not as brilliant as the first three and not as good as Cooper's good, but still pretty good.  Di Nero was super brilliant. Though the brilliance was concentrated as he was only on screen for a short time, but that short time was on par brilliant with the first three. At 70, he is still an intimidating presence.

The story was very entertaining.  There were no real dull moments.  The pace was good and every scene seemed well placed and relevant. The character development was great, too. I really felt like I understood each character and each character's motivation.

American Hustle is a well crafted, well cast, well written, nicely executed film. I loved it.

I asked the wife what she thought of it.

She said, "it was okay."

Please note the views of the wife do not reflect the views of Beerbohmtastic.
