Movie – American Hustle: B+

american hustleB+
American Hustle had all the ingredients for a favorite; five actors I like, a director whose previous works I’ve enjoyed, and critical acclaim. Alas, all that didn’t congeal into the cinematic dish I was salivating over. It had the humor of Silver Linings Playbook, but not consistently. The characters were strong, but not as strong as in The Fighter. The performances, however, were absolutely up to expectations, especially Bale, Lawrence, and Renner. The soundtrack was also awesome and perfectly utilized.
