Sean Penn shines

This is not my kind of movie but I went because my husband wanted to see it. Its violent and graphic and feels kinda like a western. BUT, the acting is fantastic-Sean Penn was born to play this role. He really should get an award for his performance. The chemistry between the 6 guys who form the posse in this film is wonderfully played by each character. Also Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are very good together and will always make for a great believable couple onscreen! The production felt very authentic and they should win an award for that as well because they did a great job-the clothes, the architecture, the cars, the train station scenes, the club sets, even how they smoke their dang cigarettes-..all of it very easily transports you back to the gangster era. If you liked Bonnie and Clyde from decades ago; you will like this even more : )

This was an entertaining flick but it won't bow your socks off. Little bit o' blood, lotsa violence but a really good time. My big complaint is What was up with Ryan Gosling's voice???

Although I don't care for Sean Penn, I really enjoyed this movie. There was a lot of action along with humor. Although a lot of blood.

It is a good movie to watch at home on friday night. I was expecting more between Ryan G. and Emma S.,since I love them to work together.I felt like the over all movie wasn't connected from one scene of the story to the other. Great acting btw!I just wanted to see more about the real story and more about how it changed after the bad boy was taken in jail. I just want to say that it was good but it could have done better!

Even though the critics gave this movie bad reviews, I actually really enjoy this movie. There are a lot of actions going on. It was based on a true story, and I believe that you can still see some of the scenes that are still happening today.
