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.

Before you go see Gangster Squad, it's highly recommended to Google Mickey Coen so you have an understand his background and career leading up to his move to LA. He worked for Capone before his planting roots in LA. The movie does not really refer to this but you will understand better his wanting to get into sports wagering. Plenty of action to keep you entertained. Good mix of characters and actors.

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.

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.

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.
