Featuring several unnecessary CGI-enhanced slow-motion action sequences, a rudimentary plot and undeveloped characters, it’s hard to recommend Gangster Squad as anything more than an easy watch. It’s sadly yet another case of the trailer being more enjoyable than the actual film. An average film that could have been – and should have been, especially with the talent involved – so much more. You’d be better off watching The Untouchables (1987) or L.A. Confidential (1997) instead.
