Ganster Squad

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.

Loved the film. The acting was great. Didn't like RG's accent. The cinematography was authentic. This film is not for kids under 13. Brolin is an action hero!

Just turn off your brain and enjoy

Take a bunch of square-jawed cops, add one scenery-chewing Sean Penn, give them Tommy guns and film noir lingo, disengage your higher brain functions and have fun. And when you've had your fill of blood, explosions, fistfights and power drills to the head, there's always Emma Stone to look at, wearing dresses so slinky that a Slinky will slink back up the stairs in shame. There, I did it. I used variations of 'slink' three times in one sentence. That required more intellect that you'll find in 'Gangster Squad's entire script. But, hey, it's January, and you can't spend all of the next two months trying to catch every Oscar-nominated film for 2012 that you missed. @140bytemoviereview

If you like The Untouchables or vigilante justice then this one is right up your alley.Be aware that although this is based on true facts, Hollywood has taken liberties in it's reenactment of actual events.

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.
