I was happy to see the Good Guys win, yes violence, but at last everyone was not nude, you can bring some family to see this one.

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.

Too much violence.
If I would have to pick which mob movie was better on the west coast between The Gangster Squad and Chinatown with Jack Nicklas and Fay Danaway, I would pick Chinatown.

This was definitely a great movie to watch!! The critics have NO clue on what they are talking about with these bad ratings. It was a great and enjoyable film. One thing I always ask myself when leaving the movie theater is "would I watch this again" and "would I buy this on Blu Ray/DVD." The answer to my own question for this movie is YES!! I absolutely see myself buying this movie and watching it again. Not a film for the whole family, but definitely a film you don't want to miss.
