Excellent

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.

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

I attended with my wife and we both found the movie to be enjoyable. The 1940's wass a great time in our history and this was seen in how gansters ruled the cities. I would recommend this movie to anyone except kids under 16.

Ganster Squad

Sean Penn gives a spectacular performance as a mob boss. This film is based on true events when the mob tried to take over L A in the late 1940's. The acting was excellent throughout the film and the storyline good. Two things to be aware of is a high dead body count and excessive cussing, including both the F and C word. I realize that the language fits the rolls of the stories content; but you should beware of it. I would still say go and see this film if only to see Sean Penn's performance.
