Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: "Gangster Squad" would have been more fun as an animated feature, with fanciful animals in the principal roles. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jan 10, 2013

Rotten: A bullet-riddled bloodbath with an all-star cast, Gangster Squad is a lurid and ludicrous Mob thriller that glorifies a gangland lifestyle. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jan 10, 2013

Rotten: Gangster Squad looks the part, but it's so superficial it practically evaporates before our eyes. – Tom Charity,, Feb 5, 2013

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. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Jan 21, 2013

I have seen the actors in this movie make daring, risky, deep, and remarkable films. I was pretty dumbfounded when I saw the film, because it is purely second rate in the script, story, and dialogue. within 20 minutes of the opening scenes I figured out that this was an ATM stop for Penn and company, a chance to hang out with some friends and take home some big dollars. Which is fine- for them. But this film is hacked together with stylized shots and tropes and cliches and really nothing else. If all you want is style, and flat, predictable dialogue doesn't offend you, then you will like this movie.

If you want more than just flashy scene to flashy scene, I'd skip it, and I wish I had.

very mediocre

had great potential with an all star cast and great source material, however the movie was over the top and was cheesy throughout. it was entertaining at times but some of the lines were absolutely horrible. the acting wasn't especially great either josh brolin didn't seem to be fully in his role and sean penn was severely overacting


While it can be unrealistic this movie serves its purpose of being a kickass gangster film
