The film Gangster Squad recently came out on DVD on Monday 27th May and being a big fan of stylish crime thrillers like The Godfather, Casino, Goodfellas and LA Confidential, I would like to watch it. Directed by Ruben Fleischer, The cast includes Sean Penn, who stars as notorious Thirties crime boss Mickey Cohen, with Emma Stone as his vampy moll, whose criminal activities attract the attention of Police chief William Parker (Nick Nolte), who asks squad leader John O’Mara, Josh Brolin, to take Cohen down.
So with the help of his wife Connie (Mireille Enos) he recruits a crime-busting unit of colourful but disreputable cops, including Sgt. Jerry Wooters (Gosling), beat cop Coleman Harris (Anthony Mackie), cowboy Max Kennard (Robert Patrick), Navidad Ramirez (Michael Peña), and tech nerd Conway Keeler (Giovanni Ribisi). However During the hunt Tactics get dirty and the line between good and bad becomes somewhat blurred as the vigilante cops start using thug methods to catch thugs.
