Gangster Squad, 2013.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer.
A group of incorruptible Los Angeles police officers join together to stop and up-and-coming mafia boss, sparking a violent war for control of the city.
Gangster Squad is an appalling lazy attempt at the gangster genre and falls flat in nearly every department. It’s like watching famous faces playing dress-up for 100 minutes whilst a film student in his first year makes what he thinks is a ‘cool’ take on the genre.
Comparisons to Brain de Palma’s undisputed classic The Untouchables are endless but listing these two films in the same sentence is as pointless as the reason for Gangster Squad ever being made. The story and script is nothing less than the best bits of other genre films cut »
