perfect movie for a rainy day

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.

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.

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.

Very disappointing to say the least! Not worth your time or money. Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling are good actors, but they seemed to be forced into overacting throughout the movie. Movie was not at all realistic at any turn and totally predictable. Ryan Gosling was out of place in the role of a tough guy but tried to overact to compensate for his misplacement in the movie. Scenes were very authinic but the unbelievable action was very poorly done by the director.
