Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Gangster Squad" would have been more fun as an animated feature, with fanciful animals in the principal roles.
Rotten: A bullet-riddled bloodbath with an all-star cast, Gangster Squad is a lurid and ludicrous Mob thriller that glorifies a gangland lifestyle.
Rotten: Gangster Squad looks the part, but it's so superficial it practically evaporates before our eyes.
Rotten: Some of the clothes and makeup feel as glossy as paint, but, those aside, we seem to browsing through a display of secondhand goods.
rent vs purchase
Mindless action worth watching as a rental.
iTunes marketing department might want to rethink the purchase only plan for early release. Sure they make a few extra bucks from those of us who can't delay gratification and pay full price for something they would rather just rent. However, they sure don't inspire customer loyalty with this scheme. How about an option to purchase at a reduced price after an initial rental? That would be customer friendly marketing.
What about ENGLISH!!!!!!!
the trailer is FRENCH!!!! What the hell!!!
I loved this movie. great action beginning to end.
