Pretty good.

Although critics will probably rip this film apart for being too original, you should still see this movie. Josh Brolin is excellent! I appreciated the character development. The ending was awesome. Of course, Ryan Gosling never disappoints. The cinematography was neat. I think they could've chose a better female to play Emma Stone's part, but all in all - go see it.

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

Casting Poor (except for Penn)

Penn was great but the rest of the cast was simply not believable. Not tough guys- soft spoken wimps with guns. Too bad, great story poor execution.

All actors wee fabulous!! This movie told a story from our past as well as was entertaining. I was pleased to see the accuracy of the props, from dinner ware, automobiles, store signs, clothing and language.
