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

The acting was good. The story line was good.. The movie did not need all the violence.
I would rent it and fast forward through the violence.

Gangster Squad is nobody's idea of Oscar fodder, but it met my needs perfdectly. I loved the period architecture, music, slang, and atmosphere. Was the violence over the top? Certainly, but not inaccurately so. I went to see this movie as pure escapism, and it hit the mark perfectly.
NOT recommended for the squeamish or the historical accuracy nitpickers.

The whole movie from start to finish had me hooked. It provided a refresh for me of Los Angeles during the late 40s and the famous Mickey Cohen. The parts where they kept going "over the river" to Burbank alway had me laughing. It was a fun cop action movie with light history lesson and some romance to boot. I almost did not go see this movie because of profession film reviews. Man, this is definitely one you have to see for yourself. The cast was solid and dynamic. The whole move had me going. Beginning to end. One last note. The movie can be pretty violent so heads up with the kiddies.
