Ryan Gosling gets to show off his old-school charm here in ‘Gangster Squad,’ a period piece where good and bad guys chase and shoot while dressed in suits. ‘Gangster Squad’ boasts quite a cast: in addition to Ryan it also stars Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Josh Brolin, and Emma Stone. I knew Ryan, Sean, Nick and Josh were all in the movie, but I had NO idea Emma was, too! This girl is EVERYWHERE.
‘Gangster Squad‘ is about the LAPD fighting the East Coast Mafia from invading the West Coast in the 1940s and 1950s. It looks like they form some type of secret unit that can do whatever it takes to get rid of the Mafia. I’m a little torn: one one hand, Ryan’s not hard on the eyes here. On the other, the violence in this picture looks pretty extreme. I’m not sure I have the stomach for it.
