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.

"1.2 Yhdysvallat Hollywoodin parhaimmistosta koostuva näyttelijäkaarti käy nolaamassa itsensä videopelimäisessä, gangsteri- ja film noir -klassikoita apinoivassa Gangsterisodassa. Tai no, useimmissa videopeleissä on käsittääkseni elävämpi maailma, kiinnostavampi tarina ja mielenkiintoisempia hahmoja. Mutta jos käytetään videopelimäisyyttä halventavassa mielessä, niin Gangsterisota on sitä kahdella tavalla. Ensiksi jonkun mielenhäiriön vallassa olleet editoijat ovat vekslann"

" Okay, I've seen this twice now and determined that it's awesome. It's an entirely fantastical take on gangsters, but that's what makes it so fun. It's basically 'Untouchables' meets comic books. Josh Brolin plays the hard-boiled cop, Ryan Gosling the good cop walking a thin line, Sean Penn the crazy Mob boss and Emma Stone the foxy lady caught in the middle. It's exactly what you think it's gonna be and that's why you should see it. Also, there was some really cool cinematography thrown in"
