From the director of Zombieland, this past weekend was spent in the movie theater or rather in a supersaturated 1949 Los Angeles as I viewed Gangster Squad.

The story centers around a secret crew of police officers off the books and under the radar working together to take down the ruthless mob boss Mickey Cohen who runs the city.

Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, and Sean Penn round out the cast as the battle between good, honorable cops and ruthless gangsters rages on the streets of Los Angeles.

It was very obvious that director Ruben Fleischer also directed the critically acclaimed Zombieland, his first feature film. Splashy stylistic violence and boundless entertainment – it was much more humorous than originally thought when entering the theater – Gangster Squad paid homage to the gangster films of the past while bringing a freshness to the subject manner.

It was a violent, dramatic ride that kept me glued to the screen through its running time. Gangster Squad was fun and stylish, though if you are looking for deeper storytelling  look elsewhere.
