In that movie, Denzel Washington portrays Frank Lucas, who, in real life, ends up seizing control of the Harlem heroin market and all of Harlem from the 'retiring' Bumpy Johnson portrayed by Forest Whitaker in this 2019 made for EPIX movie 'Godfather of Harlem'. However, in the 2007 movie 'American Gangster' he was portrayed by The Mod Squad's own Lincoln 'Link' Hayes - Clarence Williams III. See more »
I am not sure how to review this, it should be great, amazing even but it just lacks the atmosphere you tend to associate with a mob film or series. Everything is a little rushed, the build up, the confrontations, the action, leaving a feeling of a lack of depth and seriousness.
Sadly even after 2 episodes I find myself without any interest in any of the characters. I will continue watching in the hope things improve.
