Loved the film. The acting was great. Didn't like RG's accent. The cinematography was authentic. This film is not for kids under 13. Brolin is an action hero!

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

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.

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.
