What a great movie! I wasn't expecting much since the critics haven't been too kind, but this was such a great movie. The acting was good, the plot was good, and the action was phenomenal. Sure, it's a little predictable but it's exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The love story is great and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience

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.

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.

The acting was good. The story line was good.. The movie did not need all the violence.
I would rent it and fast forward through the violence.

Gangster Squad is nobody's idea of Oscar fodder, but it met my needs perfdectly. I loved the period architecture, music, slang, and atmosphere. Was the violence over the top? Certainly, but not inaccurately so. I went to see this movie as pure escapism, and it hit the mark perfectly.
NOT recommended for the squeamish or the historical accuracy nitpickers.
