Perhaps it was intended to be a cartooned version of a classic gangster movie but I thought it fell short of what it might have been.

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.

After seeing the previews I was very excited when it was released. It met my expectations. I like the time period, the costumes. Loved Emma Stone in the Jessica Rabbit dress. Josh Brolin was the perfect stoic (just as he was in MIB3) and the only person I could think of besides Sean Penn to play psycho gangster would be Joe Pesci (ala Casino) but he's too old. Penn was perfect. A little on the gory side which reminded me of a Lionsgate film. Recommend it.

Pointless violence and gore, and no real heart in the story. More like a cartoon. Sean Penn was ridicolous in his role of the villain, Mickey Coen. Too much shooting, and way too much gore. No empathy with any of the characters. I should ask for a refund.
Thanks for checking, but this is a bomb!!!!
