Gangster Squad(2013)

This movie is entertaining. It is not the historical drama that some of us were hoping for but it is light entertainment with some gore thrown in. Think Dick Tracy without all of the make up. The movie is like a comic strip that moves at break neck speed and little or no transition between scenes. I am guessing that is by design. Great performances by Brolin and Penn, good performances by Gosling, Stone, Ribisi and Patrick. No one else was on screen long enough to register as anything other than "The Cowboy" or the "knife throwing guy". Like I said, it was entertaining in a cute after dinner sort of way.
