Sean Penn very good in his role as well as the rest of the cast. Sometimes close to more than needed, ut doesn't detract from the movie as a whole. Nick Nolte better than I expected as Parker. Well worth it.

Supposed to based on the true story about Mickey Cohen but research on line does not support the movie's info. The actors did a good job of playing the parts, good job on the sets for time period. This gal is certainly getting her share of movie time even though she just isn't that attractive. Yes she can act which I guess is better than a hot dim wit Megan Fox playing the part.

Wow! What an entertaining flick. It claims to be based on a true story. I wonder how much is fact and how much is Hollywood. If the part about the undercover gangster squad's tatics is true: WOW! If only TODAY'S COPS could fight (literally) crime that way we'd have a whole lot less gangs!

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.
