Is The Plot Interesting?

I enjoyed the plot of American Hustle more than I thought I was going to. I really got immersed into the movie and followed the story quite easily. I found it quite fascinating to watch.

Is The Acting Good?

The cast was the best part about the movie in my opinion. I love every single one of these actors and they didn’t disappoint. They all did a great job and seem to work really well together.

Is The Directing Good?

I love David O. Russell as a director and, while I don’t think this his best work, he does a good job. One thing’s for sure, he knows how to get the best performances possible out of this amazing cast.

Is The Cinematography Good?

There are some good shots in American Hustle but it isn’t the movies strongest point at all. I found the lighting to be quite good as well but again, it isn’t the movies strongest point.

Is It Worth Watching?

American Hustle is definitely worth watching. I found the plot quite interesting and it has an amazing cast, who all give amazing performances. The directing from David O. Russell is also really good.

4/5
