Gangster Squad

What moved me to see this Gangster Squad is that it was based on a true story. And that it was about the Good Guys going after the Bad Guys. It was violent, more violence than I am comfortable with, but the actors and leading actress were outstanding. Great scenes, brilliant, excellent movie.

Listen to the Fans, Ignore the Critics

This was one of the best gangster movies I've ever seen. If I watched movies every day and had to write about them I'm sure my taste and ratings for films would probably change, noticing many of the films nuances, influences of "those that count", interpretations and such. Being that I am a weekend movie goer like most fans, I'm strictly out for the entertainment value and the acting. Sean Penn was a natural mob boss. I liked all of the individual characters and felt they all came across as being very believable; but what do I know, I'm just a fan! The film had a good combination of character development and action, with never a dull moment.

Very disappointing to say the least! Not worth your time or money. Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling are good actors, but they seemed to be forced into overacting throughout the movie. Movie was not at all realistic at any turn and totally predictable. Ryan Gosling was out of place in the role of a tough guy but tried to overact to compensate for his misplacement in the movie. Scenes were very authinic but the unbelievable action was very poorly done by the director.

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.

I went into this movie not expecting much besides a typical action movie. I was very surprised at how funny it was as well it was. Overall I would recommend this movie to anyone.
