Set in Los Angeles in the 1940s, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show under the protection of paid-off police officers and politicians.
Intimidation is key in Cohen's world, but a secret LAPD team, led by John O'Mara (Josh Brolin
) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling
) are ready to tear Cohen's operation apart.
Based on the book by Paul Lieberman.
Good cast, poor script, ridiculous shoot-outs (everybody should be dead) and over-the-top violence. generally yuck.
not believable in the slightest, lots of machine guns blazing and bullets missing everyone - lousy acting -probably a teenagers idea of an awesome movie but far from it if you are a mature person with even half a brain...rent it.
Very high paced!! It'll keep your attention. Good story, kinda cheesy makeup. But good entertainment
