It’s almost mid night, the girls had just gone to their dreamlands. Clet grabbed one of the DVD brought in by Victor and off he went to enjoy his movie time alone (he knows me well enough that I do not fancy action movie). He seldom has the chance to watch his movie while the girls are awake cos the TV is always on with their favourite programmes.

After the show time, he briefed me a bit on what the movie was about, sound like he enjoyed the AMERICAN GANGSTER, starred by Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, and many others.

Here's the story, "Nobody used to notice Frank Lucas (Oscar winner Washington), the quiet driver to one of the inner city's leading black crime bosses. But when his boss suddenly dies, Frank exploits the opening in the power structure to build his own empire and create his own version of the American Dream. Through ingenuity and a strict business ethic, he comes to rule the inner-city drug trade, flooding the streets with a purer product at a better price. Lucas outplays all of the leading crime syndicates and becomes not only one of the city's mainline corrupters, but part of its circle of legit civic superstars. Richie Roberts (Oscar winner Crowe) is an outcast cop close enough to the streets to feel a shift of control in the drug underworld. Roberts believes someone is climbing the rungs above the known Mafia families and starts to suspect that a black power player has come from nowhere to dominate the scene. Both Lucas and Roberts share a rigorous ethical code that sets them apart from their own colleagues, making them lone figures on opposite sides of the law. The destines of these two men will become interwined as they approach a confrontation where only one of them can come out on top". Visit here for more preview
