Went to see Gangster Squad. It’s like a whole bunch of stuff never happened – The Sopranos, The Untouchables, The Godfather films, Scarface … you name it. All these and more which have invented and reinvented one of the definitive genres of the last 50 years are just brushed over, ignored for an occasionally stylish, mostly forgettable, run of the mill gangster film which does an efficient job of wasting a good cast. It’s not a bad film. It’s just ignorant and forgettable.
I rated this film 5/10 on imdb.com and 2.5 out of 5 on rottentomatoes.com
