Critic Reviews of "Gangster Squad"CNN.comFebruary 05, 2013
Gangster Squad looks the part, but it's so superficial it practically evaporates before our eyes.New YorkerJanuary 21, 2013
Some of the clothes and makeup feel as glossy as paint, but, those aside, we seem to browsing through a display of secondhand goods.Denver PostJanuary 11, 2013
It might sound like a stretch, imagining Penn playing that intense, indiosyncratic a villain. But the lauded, veteran actor pulls a left hook, then a right, and after a wild bodyshot at the tail end of the film, you see the true mania behind his eyes.Christian Science MonitorJanuary 11, 2013
Director Ruben Fleischer and screenwriter Will Beall can't decide whether to make a spoof or a serious drama, so they wrongheadedly attempt both.Richard Roeper.comJanuary 11, 2013
Gangster Squad" is a highly stylized, pulp-fiction period piece based on true events.Minneapolis Star TribuneJanuary 11, 2013
Despite a cast of gifted actors, lush 1940s production design and suave costumes, it's bereft of inspiration, plowing familiar terrain past the point of tedium to impatience.FlavorwireJune 21, 2016
Those who are calling it shallow and cartoony and clichéd are missing the point. It is all of those things, purposefully - gleefully, even.CinemixtapeApril 12, 2016
Visually? Sure, it's impressive. But on all other fronts it leaves nothing but a couple muddy footprints and a signpost of misplaced potential.Playboy OnlineAugust 05, 2015
Okay, so maybe nobody expected Gangster Squad to be in the league of, say, Chinatown or L.A. Confidential, but even on the level of pure, bullet-spattered fun, this thing is so vaporous that it slides out of memory even while you're watching it.Philadelphia WeeklyApril 28, 2015
Gosling's smirk conveys a contempt for the material rivaled only by my own.The NationNovember 04, 2013
A nod toward nostalgia, a grandiose display of the arrogance of the present: this seems to be the whole program of Gangster Squad.
