Five Flicks in Five Clicks: January 11, 2013
Synopsis: Sure, it’s not The Untouchables, but what is? And yes, maybe it’s not L.A. Confidential either, but what could be? If anything, Gangster Squad is a super-polished, slightly comic-book nod to those classic films, featuring a delicious, ham-sandwich performance from the near-cartoonish Sean Penn. Toss in a handful of Tommy-gun action sequences and Emma Stone in period dame attire and you’ve got a piece of pulp entertainment worth killing an afternoon for.
