Good film, basic plot, if your expecting a Godfather type Mobster film this isn't it. Great performances from the cast, I mean Sean Penn's in it you know what can you expect from him. Their is mainly fiction and not really any truth to the story of the real gangster squad or Mickey Cohen but its a good little action film and was worth my 12 dollars.

This was definitely a great movie to watch!! The critics have NO clue on what they are talking about with these bad ratings. It was a great and enjoyable film. One thing I always ask myself when leaving the movie theater is "would I watch this again" and "would I buy this on Blu Ray/DVD." The answer to my own question for this movie is YES!! I absolutely see myself buying this movie and watching it again. Not a film for the whole family, but definitely a film you don't want to miss.

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 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.

It surprised me. My husband loves gangster-type movies... I have a tendency to shy away from period movies like this. I was pleasantly surprised how grabbed me and kept my attention. Great acting, especially by Sean Penn. He never ceases to amaze me how he is absorbed into the character. You forget he is an actor.
Go see it. A bit bloody, but that is to be expected with this genre.
