في أمريكا 1970، يعمل المخبر لاسقاط امبراطور المخدرات فرانك لوكاس، مبدأة الرئيسي هو تهريب المخدرات إلى داخل البلاد من الشرق الأقصى

български език
Франк Лукас е тихия и невзрачен шофьор на един от криминалните босове в града. Но когато шефът му внезапно умира, Франк се заема с изграждането на своя собствена империя, решен да реализира визията си за Американската мечта. С находчивост и стриктна бизнес етика, той концентрира цялата вътрешна търговия с наркотици, заливайки улиците с по-чист продукт на по-добра цена.

Kriminální boss Frank Lucas vládne divokému newyorskému drogovému podsvětí nemilosrdnou rukou. Jeho taktika vychází ze znalosti místních poměrů a nepostrádá dávku svérázného humoru. Když dostává neúplatný policista Richie Roberts za úkol rozbít Lucasovo dolarové impérium, začíná tím souboj, který se stal legendou. Americký gangster je „krutý a brilantní film“ (Pete Hammond, Maxim).

I 70'ernes New York får narkohandleren Frank Lucas en rigtig profitabel ide: At smugle stoffer i kisterne, der strømmer hjem fra Vietnam-krigen med døde amerikanske soldater. Kriminalbetjent Ritchie Roberts er både bundærlig og noget af en outsider. Han sætter sig for at komme trafikken med stoffer til livs og sætte Lucas bag lås og slå. Under arbejdet kommer Ritchie i kontakt med den knap så hæderlige kollega Trupo.

Im Harlem der 1970er bringt ein charismatischer Drogenboss einen Kommissar und tödliche Rivalen gegen sich auf. Ehrgeiz und Korruption sind eine gefährliche Mischung.

Im Harlem der 1970er bringt ein charismatischer Drogenboss einen Kommissar und tödliche Rivalen gegen sich auf. Ehrgeiz und Korruption sind eine gefährliche Mischung.

Anfang der 70er Jahre: Er war der erste Afroamerikaner, der es schaffte, in New York die Mafia zu übertreffen – mit besten Verbindungen zu vietnamesischen Drogenlieferanten, mit ebenso dreisten wie genialen Schmuggelmethoden und seinem legendären “Blue Magic”-Heroin. Er war Familienmensch, Held der Straße, und er war ein skrupelloser Gangster. Basierend auf der wahren Geschichte des New Yorker-Drogengangsters Frank Lucas schickt Ridley Scott zwei Superstars und Charakterdarsteller in ein packendes Duell: Denzel Washington als Gangsterboss Lucas und Russel Crowe als Detective Richie Roberts. Beide sind Außenseiter in ihrer Welt, beide folgen einem Ehrenkodex und beide haben Respekt voreinander – aber es kann nur einen Gewinner geben.

Ύστερα από το θάνατο του Μπάμπι Τζόνσον, εργοδότη και μέντορά του, ο Φρανκ Λούκας καθιερώνεται ως ο νούμερο ένα εισαγωγέας ηρωίνης στο Χάρλεμ του Μανχάταν. Και το κατορθώνει αγοράζοντας ηρωίνη απευθείας από την πηγή στην Νοτιοανατολική Ασία, επινοώντας ένα μοναδικό τρόπο εισαγωγής των ναρκωτικών στις Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες. Βασισμένο σε αληθινή ιστορία.

Nueva York, 1968. Frank Lucas es el taciturno chófer de un importante mafioso negro de Harlem. Cuando su jefe muere inesperadamente, Frank aprovecha la oportunidad para construir su propio imperio. Gracias a su talento, se convierte no sólo en el principal narcotraficante de la ciudad, inundando las calles con productos de mejor calidad y precio, sino también en un hombre público muy respetado. Richie Roberts, un policía incorruptible marginado por su honradez que conoce bien las calles, se da cuenta de que una persona ajena a los clanes trepa por la escalera del poder. Tanto Roberts como Lucas comparten un estricto código ético que les aparta de los demás y los convierte en dos figuras solitarias en lados opuestos de la ley. Cuando se encuentren, el enfrentamiento entre ellos será inevitable.

«فرانک لوکاس» (واشینگتن) راننده و محافظ یکی از رؤسای تشکیلات تبهکاری است که پس از مرگ رئیسش خیلی زود موقعیت خود را به عنوان وارد کننده ی درجه ی یک مواد مخدر در هارلم نیویورک تثبیت می کند. «ریچی رابرتس» (کرو) نیز پلیس درستکاری است که رهبری گروه ضربت مبارزه با مواد مخدر را به عهده دارد و می کوشد تا جلوی فعالیت های تشکیلات «لوکاس» را بگیرد...

Kukaan ei tavallisesti huomannut Frank Lucasia (Denzel Washington), yhden Harlemin johtavien mustien rikollispomojen autonkuljettajaa. Mutta Lucasin pomon yhtäkkiä kuollessa hän tarttuu tilaisuuteen rakentaakseen oman imperiuminsa ja luodakseen oman versionsa amerikkalaisesta unelmasta. Kekseliäisyydellä ja tiukalla bisnesetiikalla Lucas päätyy kaupungin huumekaupan hallitsijaksi täyttäen kadut puhtaammalla kamalla ja paremmilla hinnoilla. Hän päihittää muut johtavat huumevälittäjät ja tulee varsinaiseksi superstaraksi omassa lajissaan.

Début des années 1970, New York. Frank Lucas a vécu pendant vingt ans dans l'ombre du Parrain noir de Harlem, Bumpy Johnson, qui en fait son garde du corps et confident. Lorsque son patron succombe à une crise cardiaque, Lucas assure discrètement la relève et ne tarde pas à révéler son leadership, son sens aigu des affaires et son extrême prudence, en prenant pour auxiliaires ses frères et cousins et en gardant un profil bas. Inconnu de la police comme des hautes instances de la Cosa Nostra, Lucas organise avec la complicité d'officiers basés au Vietnam un véritable pont aérien et importe ainsi par avions entiers des centaines de kilos d'héroïne pure, qu'il revend à bas prix dans les rues de New York...

איש לא מתייחס ברצינות לפרנק לוקאס, נהג הבוס השקט של אחד מראשי המאפיה האפרו-האמריקאית בהארלם. כאשר הבוס נפטר באופן פתאומי, פרנק מנצל את ההזדמנות ובורא גרסה משל עצמו לחלום האמריקאי. בעזרת חוש עסקי מפותח הוא מצליח להחדיר לרחובות סמים טובים משל מתחריו במחירים זולים יותר. הוא לא רק הופך לאיש הפשע המסוכן והידוע ביותר ברחובות אלא גם לסוג של סלבריטאי. ריצי רוברטס הוא שוטר קשוח, זאב בודד שלא בדיוק מסתדר עם חבריו למקצוע, ששם לעצמו למטרה לעצור את פרנק לוקאס הזהה לו באופיו אך נמצא מצדו השני של החוק. במשחק הזה רק אחד מהם יוכל לשרוד.

Nakon smrti svog poslodavca i mentora, Bumpyja Johnsona, Frank Lucas osniva se kao glavni uvoznik heroina u okrugu Harlem na Manhattanu. Čini to kupnjom heroina izravno iz izvora u jugoistočnoj Aziji i dolazi do jedinstvenog načina uvoza droge u Sjedinjene Države. Djelomično se temelji na istinitoj priči.

Frank Lucasra nem figyelt fel senki, míg a belváros egyik fekete főgengszterének hallgatag sofőrje volt. Ám amikor főnöke váratlanul meghal, Frank kihasználja a hatalmi struktúrában keletkezett rést, és felépíti saját birodalmát, megteremti az Amerikai Álom saját személyére szabott verzióját. Richie Roberts a becsületes zsaru, akit a társai kinéznek maguk közül. Elég közel van az utcákhoz, hogy érezze a hatalmi viszonyok elmozdulását a kábítószeres alvilágban. Roberts meggyőződése, hogy valaki az ismert maffiacsaládok fölé került, és gyanítani kezdi, hogy egy fekete játékos bukkant fel a semmiből, és egyenesen a csúcsra tör.Lucas és Roberts is szigorú erkölcsi kódex szerint él, ez különbözteti meg őket társaiktól, ettől lesznek mindketten magányos harcosok a törvény két oldalán. A két férfi sorsa összefonódik, ahogy egyre közeleg a leszámolás perce, amelyből csak az egyikük kerülhet ki győztesen.

Bahasa indonesia
Ambisi dan korupsi berbenturan di Harlem tahun 1970-an saat seorang gembong narkoba yang karismatik berkuasa dan menghadapi detektif jujur dan para musuh mematikan.

Harlem, 1968. Frank Lucas, gangster nero e "ricercato", ama la famiglia, prega in chiesa e fa la guardia a Bumpy Johnson, un "padrino" che accoglie le suppliche di Harlem e distribuisce tacchini il Giorno del Ringraziamento. Richie Roberts, detective ebreo e incorruttibile della contea di Essex, sta divorziando dalla moglie, ha dimenticato di dire le preghiere e dà la caccia ai malavitosi e ai distributori di tacchini. Alla morte di Johnson, Lucas, più moderno e manageriale del vecchio padrino, subentra nelle sue attività, elimina gli avversari e diventa in pochi anni un potente boss della droga. Scavalcando le famiglie mafiose e rifornendosi di eroina direttamente nel sud-est asiatico, Lucas accumula una fortuna e attira l'attenzione di Richie Roberts. I loro percorsi, opposti e paralleli, si incontreranno.


1968년, 뉴욕 암흑가의 두목 범피가 죽음을 맞이하자 그의 오른팔이었던 프랭크 루카스가 그 자리를 대신한다. 프랭크는 베트남전의 혼란한 상황을 틈타 직접 태국과 베트남을 오가며 마약 밀수를 시작하고 고순도 마약을 싼 가격으로 판매하며 부와 명예를 쌓는다. 한편 소신을 지키는 형사 리치 로버츠는 마약 범죄 소탕을 위해 특별 수사반을 결성하지만 수사는 원점에서 맴돌고 마약 조직의 실마리조차 찾지 못한다. 어느 날 블루 매직이라는 고순도 마약을 우연히 손에 넣게 된 리치는 베일에 쌓인 암흑가 두목의 존재를 감지하고 수사에 박차를 가하는데...

Žmonės paprastai nepastebėdavo kuklaus vieno iš mafijos vadukų vairuotojo Franko Lukaso, tačiau kuomet jo bosas netikėtai miršta, tylus juodaodis vairuotojas pasinaudoja galimybe sukurti savo jėgos struktūrą. Savo amerikietišką svajonę. Besąlygiškai vadovaudamasis garbės kodeksu ir verslo etikos principais, Frankas pamažu perima į savo rankas narkotikų verslą. Jis pasiūlo rinkai kokybiškesnės produkcijos už žemesnę kainą. Išstumdamas iš žaidimo savo konkurentus. Detektyvas Ričis Robertsas dažnai dirba gatvėse ir puikiai jaučia miesto pulsą. Viena iš jo darbo sričių yra būtent prekyba narkotikais. Detektyvas iš karto pajaučia besikeičiančią situaciją, ir nors jam to niekas nepatvirtina, Robertsas ima įtarti, kad mieste atsirado naujas, visiškai nežinomas juodaodis mafiozas, besivadovaujantis kitokiais metodais nei buvo įprasta iki šiol.

Bahasa melayu
Cita-cita dan korupsi bercanggah di Harlem pada 1970-an tatkala raja dadah berkarisma bangkit berkuasa dan bersemuka dengan detektif bermoral dan pesaing berbahaya.

Drugskoning Frank Lucas profiteert van de aanwezigheid van het Amerikaans leger in Azië tijdens de Vietnamoorlog om goedkoop drugs de US in te smokkelen. Daarmee bouwt hij in rap tempo een groot imperium op.

Tidlig på 70-tallet var politikorrupsjon utbredt i New York City. Vietnamkrigen krevde sine ofre både borte og hjemme. Soldatene kom tilbake til USA enten i likposer eller som avhengige av et importert opiat kalt heroin - som de delte med nysgjerrige eksperimentelle. Med hjelp av lovens håndhevelse opererte mafiaen relativt uten konkurranse i dette markedet ved å selge tusenvis av kilo heroin til avhengige, som var sultne på produktet deres. Helt til en svart forretningsmann, Frank Lucas, blandet seg inn i leken. Det var egentlig ingen som la merke til Frank Lucas, den tause sjåføren til Bumpy Johnson, en av de mektigste, svarte bossene i det kriminelle miljøet i byen etter Vietnamkrigen. Men når bossen plutselig dør, utnytter Frank åpningene i maktstrukturen for å bygge sitt eget imperium og skape sin egen versjon av den amerikanske oppfattelsen av suksess.

Frank Lucas człowiek, który wie czym jest poczucie honoru, ale i znający zasady ulicy, postanawia uporządkować chaotyczne podziemie narkotykowe Harlemu. Na jego drodze stanie jednak Richie Roberts, nieprzekupny gliniarz, który poprzysiągł zniszczyć warte setki milionów dolarów narkotykowe imperium. Dwie silne osobowości po dwóch stronach barykady. Oto, jak wyglądało ich legendarne starcie.

Frank Lucas trabalha como chofer de um dos mafiosos mais importantes do Harlem. Após a morte de seu chefe, Frank usa sua perspicácia e jeito para os negócios para se transformar em um dos mais poderosos líderes criminosos da cidade. Enquanto isso, o policial veterano Richie Roberts percebe mudanças na estrutura do poder da máfia, e busca uma maneira de levar seu oponente à justiça.

Frank Lucas é motorista de Bumpy Johnson, um dos maiores chefes do crime organizado em Nova Iorque. Após a sua morte, e enquanto os restantes mafiosos se digladiam violentamente para ocupar o espaço vago no mercado das drogas, Lucas aproveita os seus contactos e a Guerra do Vietname para trazer heroína pura directamente do Extremo Oriente, vendendo-a mais barata que os concorrentes e tornando-se, assim, no maior traficante da cidade e num dos patrões do crime. Entretanto, Richie Roberts, um honesto e dedicado inspector da polícia, é chamado para liderar uma unidade especial de combate ao crime organizado que fará de Lucas o seu alvo preferencial.

Ambițiile și corupția se ciocnesc în Harlemul anilor ’70, unde un baron al drogurilor ajunge la putere, dar are de înfruntat un detectiv integru și rivali letali.

После смерти хозяина, Фрэнк Лукас, тихий водитель гарлемского преступного авторитета, решает создать собственную криминальную империю. Его специальность — героин, который он ввозит напрямую из Юго-Восточной Азии. Лукас считает себя бизнесменом и конкурирует с другими группировками по всем правилам рыночной экономики, предлагая более качественный продукт по более низкой цене. Зарабатывая миллион долларов в день и придерживаясь однажды установленных для себя правил игры, он становится идолом для всего Гарлема, но по следам Фрэнка уже идёт Ричи Робертс — редкий для Нью-Йорка образец честного полицейского, ненавидимого коллегами.

Buď je človek niekým, alebo nikým. Frank Lucas veru niekým je. Je to americký gangster, ktorý sa vypracoval z nikoho na niekoho. Môže si tak pohodlne užívať svoj americký sen, ktorý zdieľa i so svojou široko rozvetvenou famíliou. Nič však netrvá večne. Na druhej strane barikády stojí Richie Roberts. Ambiciózny policajt, ktorý sa tiež snaží dopracovať k americkému snu. Na rozdiel od svojich skorumpovaných kolegov sa Roberts snaží odolať každodennému pokušeniu policajného remesla. Keďže sa o americký sen usiluje legálnou cestou, rozhodne sa vrátiť takmer milión špinavých dolárov štátu. Stáva sa zidealizovaným mýtickým hrdinom vo svete bezbrehej policajnej korupcie a zločinu. Americký gangster Ridleyho Scotta (Votrelec, Gladiátor, Čierny jastrab zostrelený) je nakrútený podľa skutočných udalostí.

Животна прича Френка Лукаса почиње у Северној Каролини у време расних тензија и јасних расних раздвајања. Његовог рођака убио је Кју-клукс-клан због гледања беле девојчице. Живот га води у Харлем, где постаје велики нарко-бос успостављајући контакте у Азији и шверцујући хероин у Америку у ковчезима мртвих војника који су погинули у Вијетнаму. У то време дневно је зарађивао милион долара од продаје дроге на улицама. Лукасу убрзо стаје на пут представник закона, Ричи Робертс, који је на крају и највише учинио да се овај криминалац приведе правди. Њих двојица су се касније удружили да би раскринкали непоштене полицајце и стране званичнике који су толико олакшали увоз хероина.

Ingen brukade lägga märke till Frank Lucas, den tyste chauffören till en av innerstadens ledande, svarta bossar. Men när chefen plötsligt dör utnyttjar Frank öppningen i maktstrukturen för att skapa sin egen version av "The American Dream". Genom uppfinningsrikedom och en strikt affärsmoral hamnar han som ledare för drogtrafiken i innerstaden och svämmar över gatorna med en renare produkt till ett bättre pris...

20 世纪 70 年代的哈林区充斥着野心与腐败。一名魅力非凡的毒枭掌权后,与正直的警探和致命死敌展开交锋。

70年代早期,紐約市警界貪污情形嚴重。越戰在美國內外造成慘重的結果。軍人返回美國,不是陣亡裝進屍袋,就是染上海洛因毒癮,因為心存好奇的人使用之後會立刻成癮。在執法單位的包庇下,黑手黨高枕無憂操作這個沒有競爭對手的市場,賣出幾千公斤的毒品給毒蟲。一群白人特權階級以幾億美元收買紐約的法官、律師與警察,讓他們對這層相互利益的關係不多追問。黑手黨組織無人能敵。 後來,黑人商人法蘭克盧卡斯(丹佐華盛頓飾)接管大局。以前沒人注意過法蘭克,這個沈默寡言的人是紐約市戰後黑幫老大跛腳強森的徒弟。盧卡斯的老大猝死後,他利用權力結構的空檔建立自己的帝國,並且創造另類的美國成功事蹟。盧卡斯自小失學,但他累積了多年的街頭常識。他運用這份經驗跟聰明才智與嚴格的生意經,成了紐約市毒品交易的第一把交椅,街頭也因此充斥價格更好、純度更高的毒品。盧卡斯打敗各大犯罪集團,他不只是海洛因的大毒梟,還成了毒品界的巨星。 警察李奇羅勃茲(羅素克洛飾)作風強勢,他清楚街頭的情勢,並且察覺到毒品界的權力在轉移。羅勃茲認為有人的地位竄升到黑手黨家族之上,並且開始懷疑一個不知名的有力黑人搶盡風頭。盧卡斯與羅勃茲的道德觀念都很嚴苛,讓他們跟同行區隔開來,在法律的正反兩方成了獨行俠。這兩人的命運在雙方爆發衝突時將交織在一起,這不只會改變他們自己的人生,也改變了紐約市全體世代的命運。
