Disappointing movie, beautiful but not very interesting.
My husband and I were both quite disappointed in "The Gangster Squad." We had hoped for a lot more. We thought it was a very good-looking movie; the actors, the beautiful vintage cars and the sets. It was predictable; lots and lots of gunfights, car crashes, shoot-em-ups, explostions, lots of leaking gasoline set afire with a lighter! A bunch of those -- lots and lots of of action. It was a dazzling movie, but not terribly interesting. Very little, if any character development.
Whoever made up Sean Penn as Dutch Shultz did a great job --
