Gangster Squad

Gangster Squad was released on January 7, 2013 starring actors Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling and many more.The reviews are kind of negative but in my opinion, it was one of the best I've ever seen.The story is simple. In 1949 Los Angeles, Mickey Cohen becomes the biggest gangster in the city. After cop John O'Mara raids one of Cohen's hotels to save a lady, he is instructed by Chief Bill Parker to form a squad of cops to take down Cohen. Hiring Jerry Wooters, gunslinger Max Kennard, Coleman Harris, and Kennard's partner Navidad Ramirez, they set off to take down each of Cohen's businesses.Aside from the action, there's some humor too. Wooters asks O'Mara,"What happened to the criminal?" "He resisted." "What happened to the other guys?""They resisted." The movie is good, but there's some downers. The story is easy to understand, and there are some predictable moments. I'm not going to spoil what they are, but like I said, it's predictable.Aside from that, the movie is one of the best I've seen. I'd give Gangster Squad 9.25 out of 10.
