Brilliantly badass gangster flick

"We're losing Los Angeles to an Eastern crook..."

Do not watch 2013's Gangster Squad expecting a meaningful period drama like L.A. Confidential or The Godfather. Rather, this is a hard-hitting, badass gangster action picture with shades of Brian De Palma's The Untouchables. No pretensions exist here; director Ruben Fleischer and writer Will Beall simply set out to create a slick, en... read more

A poor rehash of the much better movie version of The Untouchables.
Utterly predictable and it has little in common with the true story that alledgedly inspired it. At times I felt like I was watching a Dick Tracy movie. When Josh Brolin wears a fedora he resembles Dick Tracy and
Sean Penn's makeup makes him look like a member of Tracy's Rogue's Gallery.

" Sean Penn as Mickey Cohen"


MovieMoron posted a review 2 weeks, 2 days ago

“Gangster movies are sort of hard to come by nowadays. The last great movie about Gangsters I remember seeing was Public Enemies with Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. It was about John Dillinger and was an A-okay picture with a brilliant performance from Depp as Dillinger himself. Now there's Gangster Squad. An entertaining Gangster picture about a group of Elite L.A. officers who are hired by the chief of the PD (Police Department) to bring down a ruthless Gangster named Mickey Cohen. What surprised me a lot about this movie was it's distinct look of the late 1940s. I love it when a film (especially nowadays) tries to recreate a certain era. Even in Hollywood which back then was called HOLLYWOODLAND. So Disney! But this place wasn't family friendly even in those days.

"24.3. Netflix Right now, somewhere on Earth, a conversation like this is happening: "Gangster Squad? I think it's a stupid, cliche-filled piece of crap." "It's supposed to be like that! What the fuck were you expecting, a John Luke Go-Darth movie?! Gangster Squad is not meant to be smart, it's meant to be fun. F-U-N, fun! Just pure entertainment, not art. And as you know, you can't be entertaining and clever at the same time, they just don't mix! Oh, wait, did you watch it alone? Because it's"

WatchMojo’s Top 10 Movies Impacted By Real-Life Ev (10 movies items)

"After the mass shooting tragedy during a midnight premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, Colorado, the trailer for “Gangster Squad” was pulled because it featured a gunfight scene set in a movie theater. Keeping the section unaltered in the feature seemed insensitive, so Warner Bros. considered altering the film and delayed its release to incorporate a less controversial gunfight."

"Already watched this in the theater when it was released. And after re-watching this in HBO I realized something, the reason why Ryan Gosling chooses those quiet type characters is because he have a weird voice. Anyway this movie is okay, I liked the fight scene in the start where the guy had his hand chopped by the elevator. This movie is not that bad, not that good. Favorite Character: "

Top 10 Manliest Movies of 2013 (10 movies items)

" Although savaged by critics, Gangster Squad is a magnificent slice of manly entertainment. It flaunts a brilliant cast, with the likes of Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, former T-1000 Robert Patrick, and a few other actors. It's a straightahead action extravaganza, and while there's not much depth at play here, it's hard to care. It's a big, violent cartoon, and I had a lot of fun with it."

2013 Films - Best to Worst (74 movies items)

"Gangster Squad is an entertaining film, despite it offering nothing new to this genre. It's a stylish effort with huge stars and a lot of gunfire. So by that, I was never bored. That's something. But it's full of clichés, over-the-top acting (Sean Penn) and characters who are never fleshed out (Emma Stone). So, it's never terrible, never good, but merely okay. "

"Just a big mess. Despite any changing of scenes and all that Gangster Squad is boring and mostly miscasted. Josh Brolin is one of the few who fits their role and plays it fine but that's about where the pros end. Sean Penn... well he's a bit all over the place. Sometimes it works, but the writing is so stale and uninteresting that after a while he becomes just a loud piece of scenery. Gosling and Stone are also dull and their love story feels very tacked on. Its shame as there's a lot of talent"
