Gangster Squad

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.

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.

Wow! What an entertaining flick. It claims to be based on a true story. I wonder how much is fact and how much is Hollywood. If the part about the undercover gangster squad's tatics is true: WOW! If only TODAY'S COPS could fight (literally) crime that way we'd have a whole lot less gangs!

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.
