Story


Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and-if he has his way-every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop...except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..may earn a gentleman's C for style, but the moral of the story gets a failing grade..”
by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post]
“..you'll have to settle for the opening one, in which a hood with his limbs tied to two different cars is torn in half onscreen..”
by J. R. Jones [Chicago Reader]
“..little more than another Hollywood wannabe overshadowed by the legacy of "L.A. Confidential"..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
