Gangster Squad Movie Synopsis

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
