This movie was very well done. The integrity of the time period was kept very well, the plot was developed, the characters were interesting, and the storyline moved along well. We loved it.

The movie is very slow and I dont think any gangster movie is going to come glose to scarface but.It has its moments and if you lioke the 50's then its good but if you dont then just stay home or rent it.

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.

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.
