After David O. Russell’s somewhat overblown (but still entertaining) Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle brings the style full force. The film stars Christian Bale and Amy Adams as a con duo who’re roped into an FBI plan to take down a crooked mayor.
There’s more story here than there was in the first trailer (although it’s still not much), but it’s not really necessary. Just by looking and hearing this in action, I know it’s going to be great. I mean, I still can’t get over Bale’s little pot belly. It’s adorable. American Hustle hustles us out of our movie cash December 25th.
