Josh Brolin is AMAZING! As usual!!! Sean Penn was a hard ass, but he looked coked out the whole time. I don't know he just didn't look like the Sean I know and love. But he was still good. The story line was good. I'd recommend it.

This movie was better than I expected. I knew Sean Penn would be fantastic...he always is. But, I wasn't sure about Brolin and Gossling. They worked well together and everything played out well on screen. There was a little bit of creative liberty with the storytelling but all in all a pretty good movie.

A valiant attempt at making three different movies and cramming them into one. Unfortunately, a failure. Terrible dialogue, plot holes, serious lack of commitment to a single vision. Movie started like a Zach Snyder action movie, then changed to an Untouchables remake, then turned stupid. The acting was totally phoned in and campy, but not on purpose. Sean Penn and Giovanni Ribisi were the only good things about it.

This was a great movie. It was action-packed and the plot was solid. Without the really epic details of past great gangster movies, 'Gangster Squad' was driven by a lot of weak dialogue and cheesy one-liners and the movie could've done without Ryan Gossling-this just wasn't his type of movie if you will. Overall, this was still a great movie with plenty of action and I enjoyed every moment of it.
