On a 1 to 10 scale its a 5 at best.

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.

An Exciting, Intense Surprise!

By jzactor

What I expected this film to be and what it is are very different. I was very pleasantly suprised by this film. The great actors in it raise it to a deeper emotional level than most good guy cops against wicked gangster films. Each of the star actors makes specific, distinct character behavioral and emotional choices which increase the intensity of the script which is very simple and basic. We have seen it before in many films but in this one the cast raises it up so it was impossible for me not get deeply emotionally involved in the film and the characters. Most memorable is the horrible violence and reminders of people who have been and still are cut down and give their lives to fight for the right and good. Sean Penn is incredibly, disturbingly intense making his bad guy easy to despise. The vivid colors used and dark noir quality made this an exciting, intense & disturbing experience, which suits the fact that this war reallly did happen!

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!

Gangster Squad

Great movie, one of the best "Gangster" movies I have seen in a while compared to other "GanstA" movies. A story that can be foreseen once the movie has started, but more enjoyable then the any movie this year by far.
