SYNOPSIS/PLOT Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) 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 who are under his control. 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 (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart. "Gangster Squad" is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD's efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"Slick, sick, self-consciously stylish and defiantly shallow, Gangster Squad is one of those movies you can't talk about without invoking other (often better) movies (...) Rating: *1/2 (out of four)" (Ann Hornaday: The Washington Post)
----------------------------------------
"A bullet-riddled bloodbath with an all-star cast, Gangster Squad is a lurid and ludicrous Mob thriller that glorifies a gangland lifestyle (...) Rating: ** (out of four)" (Claudia Puig: USA Today)
----------------------------------------
"'Gangster Squad' [is] a mob epic that flushes a classy cast down the sinkhole of creative bankruptcy (...) Rating: * (out of four)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
