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.

Very entertaining action filled movie. Some of the good guys died but overall fun filled adventure. Would recommend to anyone who can get past the violence.

I was happy to see the Good Guys win, yes violence, but at last everyone was not nude, you can bring some family to see this one.

Too much violence.
If I would have to pick which mob movie was better on the west coast between The Gangster Squad and Chinatown with Jack Nicklas and Fay Danaway, I would pick Chinatown.

Before you go see Gangster Squad, it's highly recommended to Google Mickey Coen so you have an understand his background and career leading up to his move to LA. He worked for Capone before his planting roots in LA. The movie does not really refer to this but you will understand better his wanting to get into sports wagering. Plenty of action to keep you entertained. Good mix of characters and actors.
