I attended with my wife and we both found the movie to be enjoyable. The 1940's wass a great time in our history and this was seen in how gansters ruled the cities.
I would recommend this movie to anyone except kids under 16.

Sean Penn gives a spectacular performance as a mob boss. This film is based on true events when the mob tried to take over L A in the late 1940's. The acting was excellent throughout the film and the storyline good. Two things to be aware of is a high dead body count and excessive cussing, including both the F and C word. I realize that the language fits the rolls of the stories content; but you should beware of it. I would still say go and see this film if only to see Sean Penn's performance.

All actors wee fabulous!! This movie told a story from our past as well as was entertaining. I was pleased to see the accuracy of the props, from dinner ware, automobiles, store signs, clothing and language.

What a great movie! I wasn't expecting much since the critics haven't been too kind, but this was such a great movie. The acting was good, the plot was good, and the action was phenomenal. Sure, it's a little predictable but it's exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The love story is great and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience
