  • Good flick!

    I really like this movie. Good action, and Emma Stone never looked better!
  • this movie is underrated

    Somebody in Hollywood must have paid to have this movie trashed. I've seen this 3 times now and I think it's a fantastic film. The people who say the script is bad have no idea what they're talking about. Every actor in this is fantastic. Josh Brolin is fantastic, Nick Nolte is great, Gosling and Stone and knockouts too. I also think Sean Penn is great as Micky Cohen. Really can't understand why so many people don't like this movie. This is more compact than L.A. Confidential and altogether a different type of beast. I suppose I agree that L.A. Confidential is an all-around better picture, but I love this movie as well and highly recommend it.

  • Greatly underrated awesome movie!!

    The trailer had a lot of rap music in it which does NOT exist in the film. The film really takes you back to Los Angeles 1949! It's a pretty great story with the exception of a couple predictable parts. If you like Mafia related stories or the Mafia games(Mafia, Mafia 2, Mafia 3) you will LOVE this. Ignore the bad ratings!! They're all idiots that don't know a good film when it's seen!!!!
  • Great Movie

    The plot was good, wonderful actors, great period piece. It's a gangster movie and critics are upset there is shooting. I guess I should have watched a Hallmark Christmas movie..
  • Police Squad -- The First Generation

    By nocrickets
    The story was told better in "The Untouchables." The comic-book noir feel was done better in "Sin City." The over-the-top blood and gore was more fun in "Shoot 'Em Up." The costumes were better in "Roger Rabbit." And the characters had more depth, too. There's not a believable second on the screen, which could be okay if this were meant as a spoof. But though some of the situations and dialogue are so cliched they spoof themselves, it seems unintentional. A strong cast wasted on a doofusy project.
  • Crap

    That was the worst most predictable movie I have ever seen. Everything was sub-par.
  • Fun, stylized movie

    By Doc0103
    Not sure what other people were watching, but this was a fun, stylized, slick movie in the vein of "The Untouchables." Loved it! I thought all the actors were very good in this movie. Big names, looked like they enjoyed making this movie. Though Sean Penn's makeup seemed a bit rubberized. Ryan Gosling and Sullivan Stapleton (wish he was part of the squad, and not a gangster) were slick and sexy. My favorite part was when the Squad hit the night club - the woman who played Carmen Miranda was great and the scene at the hotel. Just fun action. Someone mentioned that there were no ethnic people on the police force during that time period - there was, as white cops wouldn't have lasted in those neighborhoods. Someone also mentioned there was rap music in this film. Not so - it was big band music. If you enjoy gangster movies, buy it. You won't be disappointed.
