  • Summary: Read into “Gangster Squad” at the level you desire. Just know that, depending on your chosen areas of emphasis, you may hit the bottom of the well sooner than you anticipate.

  • Excerpt: Ah the January movie.  So many studios save their “B” list fodder for the post-Holiday crowds that it’s quite a rare feat to find a good one.  Take a look back at some of the movies that have come out in January and I challenge you to find one that’s either made a profit or has any semblance of...

Gangster Squad Review

  • Excerpt: The cops in Gangster Squad are yanked from their seats like a backyard baseball team. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) is tasked with taking on mobster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn), but must do so without the support of a corrupt police department.

  • Conclusion: Given its potentially rich subject matter and talented, accomplished makers, Gangster Squad is less than you hope and expect. Valuing style over substance, it looks nice, but sounds dumb, its problems too glaring to blame on re-edits, delays, or historically weak timing.

Gangster Squad (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: In addition to The Untouchables , the film nods to The Dirty Dozen , Ocean’s Eleven (when O’Mara sets about recruiting his team) and a number of other great movies where a scrappy group of guys team up to take on a seemingly impossible mission. Gangster Squad doesn’t quite reach that level.

  • Conclusion: 'Gangster Squad' tries its best to recreate a volatile period in Los Angeles history, and though this violent, action-packed shoot-'em-up certainly stokes the senses, it never stimulates the brain or stirs the soul.

  • Conclusion: There'll be those who wholeheartedly enjoy Gangster Squad . Then there will be those who'll be ready to pull the trigger before it even starts killing everything that moves; those dissatisfied with its endless clichés and tough guy melodrama, unimpressed with its script and performances, and...

Gangster Squad Movie Review

  • Summary: Less a historical retelling than a shoot-em-up video game, with blood splattering across the room. That's not a bad thing.

Gangster Squad

Cinema Blend
11 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Gangster Squad will likely be remembered as the violent movie that was delayed and reshot after one mass shooting tragedy, only to come to theaters barely a month after another one. If it were a good movie, this would probably be an unfortunate case of reality infringing on art.
