Storyline Heading
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and -- if he has his way -- every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians he has under his thumb. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop... except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara and Sgt. Jerry Wooters, who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Crime - While based on real-life organized crime figures and situations in 1940s Los Angeles, this is not a serious mob drama but more of a lighter, popcorn action film. While the film is generally an all-star ensemble piece, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, and Sean Penn get most of the screen time. Language and violence make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Gangster Squad provides a welcome burst of heat and color, even if those qualities are more illusory than real and subject to a fast fade.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average It offers the marginal pleasure of an all-star cast slumming their way through a thicket of routine plotting, almost laughable dialogue and the constant blaze of tommy guns.

USA Today Full Review
Average An unconvincing tale and cartoonish contrivances make for a second-rate pulpy thriller.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 48 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! These are certainly better reviews than the "average" reviews given by movie critics. Approximately half of both the males and females LOVED "GANGSTER SQUAD." Most of the remaining half rated it "Very Good," which indicates an above average movie they enjoyed very much. Only a small percentage rated it as low as average, and no one disliked it (very important).
