Based very loosely on a true story,Gangster Squad tells the tale of a group of L.A. police officers brought together with the express purpose of bringing down ruthless crime lord Mickey Cohen. While the story is an intriguing one, the cops being forced to work outside the law to bring Cohen to justice, the telling of it is less compelling, the film stylish and glossy but lacking in substance.
