Ridley Scott's American Gangster is a brutal, slick, and stylish portrayal of real life cult figure and international drug smuggler Frank Lucas. With tangled webs, deceit, strong aggression, shady characters and sinister plans, American Gangster has the gritty and pleasurable nostalgia of classic gangster films such as The Godfather and Scarface.

Drug-kingpin Frank Lucas smuggles heroin into the US by hiding it with the bodies of soldiers killed during battle in Vietnam. By delivering a product that is far superior to his competitors, Lucas has rapidly established his status as Harlem's most innovative drug dealer. While Lucas delicately constructs his own criminal empire, Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe), one of the few honest detectives in a corrupt system, senses a sizeable shift within the hierarchy of the drug underworld and sets out to investigate this hitherto unknown power player that has come out of the shadows to dominate the drug trade. But with Detective Trupo (Josh Brolin), Roberts' crooked and jealous colleague, wanting to obstruct and ruin the integrity of his idealistic counterpart, Roberts is left with little option other than to take desperate measures to end Lucas' rule in Harlem.

Academy Award winning lead actors Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe both turn in exhilarating and exceptional performances. With an engrossing story, powerful dialogue, realistic violence, and sharp stylish scenes, American Gangster delivers a complete, memorable, finely made, and richly satisfying crime epic that can be savoured again and again.

too many good borders deals! nice find, steelbook's are win!

Great deal - thanks for the heads up OP. My friend works just across the road from the Bristol branch so got him to go in and get me a copy earlier today.

Question - do steelbook dvd's usually come with a booklet inside? I just unwrapped it and even though it has two clips on the inside of the case, there is no booklet included.

I know you hardly ever get a booklet inside regular dvd's anymore, but thought they would have made the steelbooks a bit more special!

Still an excellent price regardless, heat and rep given.

Yep, mine was sealed. it's not a big deal that it doesn't have a booklet, just seems strange that they'd put clips on the inside and not put anything in there! :thinking:

Wonder if that's the reason they're reduced?
