What moved me to see this Gangster Squad is that it was based on a true story. And that it was about the Good Guys going after the Bad Guys. It was violent, more violence than I am comfortable with, but the actors and leading actress were outstanding. Great scenes, brilliant, excellent movie.

Wife and I loved the film. It's a great get out for the night film. Lot's and lot's of action and of course you know which good guy is going to get killed. They paid a lot of attention to period detail in this film. They even made sure the right sounds went with each gun ex(BAR ,Thompson SMG, smeischer smg, shotguns etc.

It's basically a shoot-em-up, actiony mafia movie. It's done well, and the acting is exceptional. It seems the greatest flaw is that they tried to make it REALLY AWESOME (an effort that was not subtle,) and therefore makes us aware of the fact that the movie is NOT Really Awesome while we're watching it. But it WAS Really Good. It's got its obvious flaws, and a few cheesy parts that take you out of the movie a little. But it's a good story and has mostly likable characters. Seann Penn did awesomely at being the sadistic, power-hungry boss. A must-see for the villain lovers out there. :]

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.

Listen to the Fans, Ignore the Critics

This was one of the best gangster movies I've ever seen. If I watched movies every day and had to write about them I'm sure my taste and ratings for films would probably change, noticing many of the films nuances, influences of "those that count", interpretations and such. Being that I am a weekend movie goer like most fans, I'm strictly out for the entertainment value and the acting. Sean Penn was a natural mob boss. I liked all of the individual characters and felt they all came across as being very believable; but what do I know, I'm just a fan! The film had a good combination of character development and action, with never a dull moment.
