This is not the best movie I've ever seen, but it has an interesting plot and good acting, and my husband and I both enjoyed watching it. If you don't like movies with Americans or hustlers, it probably won't be your thing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

American Hustled out of good money by misleading Ads. The ads for this movie made you think it was a rollicking fun adventure about the FBI and con men/women bringing down crime. What you get is a 'poor me' hard drama that portrays the FBI as bumbling fools out to get 'poor misunderstood entrapped politicians' who just wanted to help their communities and not line their own dirty pockets, not to mention sympathetic, noble mafia who are never portrayed as scary (just believed to be, and of course, immediately understand that the hustler is going to help them escape the FBI), victims that are portrayed as 'suckers that deserve to have their life savings and hope destroyed', and so on.
Add to that, reality TV like camera work; mumbling script; poor me tirades; and ads that used a line and scene that wasn't even in the film (and helped portray it as a 'fun' movie) and you can understand why I feel so ripped off.
I was one of those victims/suckers. If you want a fun film, avoid this like the plague. If you want a pro-criminal and crime, downer depressing drama, then go ahead, waste your money.
