American Hustle - Review

A dark comedy with a dash of crime drama and a crime drama with a healthy sense of humor, "American Hustle" defies easy categorization as it offers up a twisty plot and some of the year's best performances.

A heavily fictionalized version of the ABSCAM scandal of the '70s and '80s, "Hustle" delves into the web of corruption and greed surrounding the rebuilding of Atlantic City as a gambling Mecca, and the ambitious FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) who plans to make his name off it on the back of a mid-level con man (Christian Bale), the mob and a fake Arabian sheik.
