There may not be much behind the sparkling tinsel curtain of David O. Russell's extraordinarily entertaining American Hustle. But what a curtain!
(Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice)
Itís a rich, glorious mess, and its underlying craftsmanship is apparent in the charactersí beautifully delineated relationships, each with its own jangly rhythm and distinct feel.
(Justin Chang, Variety)
Story comes second to Russell over the rhythms of well-timed bickering, which is a blessing and a curse in American Hustle.
(Eric Kohn, indieWIRE)
An extremely entertaining, brilliantly acted, highly diverting film which ó like all hustles ó delivers less than it promises. Still, itís worth being taken for the ride.
(Kim Newman, Empire)
