Movie Reviews

  • 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 ]
  • what's left is nothing terrible, just typical
    2 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • the technologically refined variants of the effect that turn up in "Gangster Squad" might make you regret it was ever invented
    1 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • the cast seems ideal. Bits and pieces here and there entertain. But it never really comes together in a satisfying way
    2.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • the battling brutes of this tale aren't meant to measure up to such illustrious antecedents; they're only offered as action cartoons
    by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal ]
  • most of the dialogue is made of wood
    2 of 4 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • may earn a gentleman's C for style, but the moral of the story gets a failing grade
    1.5 of 4 by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post ]
  • loud, brash and utterly ridiculous, Gangster Squad isn't about doing what's right - it's all about stylish excess
    2 of 4 by Connie Ogle [Miami Herald ]
  • little more than another Hollywood wannabe overshadowed by the legacy of "L.A. Confidential"
    2 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • it's like L.A. Confidential remade as a mediocre Jason Statham film. It keeps going chica bang bang
    Review rate : C by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • it is a hectic jumble of fedoras and zoot suits, stockings and cigarettes, and red femme-fatale dresses
    2 of 5 by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • if, as Stephen Colbert has said, "the movies is where Americans learn their history," Gangster Squad is just noisy disinformation
    2 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • digitally re-created, noir-flavored locations of postwar L.A. and the dazzling eye candy of Emma Stone in terrific period dresses and heartbreaking auburn hair
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
