I attended with my wife and we both found the movie to be enjoyable. The 1940's wass a great time in our history and this was seen in how gansters ruled the cities.
I would recommend this movie to anyone except kids under 16.

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.

Sean Penn gives a spectacular performance as a mob boss. This film is based on true events when the mob tried to take over L A in the late 1940's. The acting was excellent throughout the film and the storyline good. Two things to be aware of is a high dead body count and excessive cussing, including both the F and C word. I realize that the language fits the rolls of the stories content; but you should beware of it. I would still say go and see this film if only to see Sean Penn's performance.

Although critics will probably rip this film apart for being too original, you should still see this movie. Josh Brolin is excellent! I appreciated the character development. The ending was awesome. Of course, Ryan Gosling never disappoints. The cinematography was neat. I think they could've chose a better female to play Emma Stone's part, but all in all - go see it.
