Independent Cinema - Gangster Squad Review

Independent Cinema writes: If there was one movie in 2012 that I was most excited to see, it was Gangster Squad. The trailer had a distinct visual style that impressed me at the time, the cast could not have been any better, and it looked like a fun gangster film that would also be a great addition to the genre itself. Then when it was delayed to 2013 for re-shoots after the Aurora, Colorado shootings I was disappointed to have to wait until 2013 for this movie. Well, I’ve been regretting my hype ever since walking out of the abysmal film that is Ruben Fleischer’s second strike against him as a director. Ever since Zombieland, I considered Fleischer to be a director for whom to watch out, having a distinct visual flourish to his work and an eye for action that made his first feature length film an exhilarating experience. Then came 30 Minutes or Less which was not very funny, had one scene which I recall being good, and then the rest of the movie felt flat. Well, not content with having one mediocre film under his belt, Fleischer has decided to take a crack at the crime genre with Gangster Squad; a film that will easily become one of my biggest disappointments of the year.
