One of the best movies
This is frankly one of the best movies i've seen in the last 5years. i
as surprised to see so many bad reviews here.. some people compare
American crude to pulp fiction, i did that as well in the beginning.
sure there are a lot of differences, and American crude may not be that
good as pulp fiction, but it is pretty close. first, the whole cast is
brilliant. there is no actor or actress who disappointed me. jennifer
esposito surprises in the role of the femme fatale, but as those of
you, who watched the film already, already know: nothing is as it seems
to be. plus: this movie has everything: suspense, but also funny
things. it starts with a pretty intriguing sentence, a man saying that
this is the story of the night in which he lost everything. from this
moment on, be prepared for a good movie, and even more if you like
quentin tarantinos movie. i am impressed. i can recommend it to watch
One of the worst films ever made
I almost never bother to review films, as there are always plenty of
opinions out there already. But this one was so incredibly bad, that
for some reason, I feel compelled to say something....
First off, there are so many terrific players in this movie, that I
have to imagine they never knew what they were getting themselves into.
They probably all thought this was going to be another cult underground
hit that they could be associated with. Maybe on Mars....
I kept waiting for something to happen, but it never did. Michael Clark
Duncan made this worth it for me to wait till the end, but other than
that, it was so patently absurd, that I cannot imagine how many decent
movies didn't get made because this waste of electrons, protons and
neutrons wasted all that funding.
The script had zero touches of brilliance, which if it had, might have
been enough to hold it together and make it at least a mediocre mess.
But then, the "director" seemed to decide that the only way to tell
this story was to make everything insane. And then finally, the editor,
either was the worst ever or the best ever, but we'll never know what
they had to start with in terms of raw footage.
All in all, this was a colossal waste of time and effort on everyone's
part, especially those who burnt the 2 hours of their lives to watch it.
