Hook up with your lover, pals or sibling, grab a gallon of coke and barrel of popcorn and check out the movies on this frosty Wednesday. Hot girls, hot boys, lots of guns and sublime vintage styling – what more could you want from some visual escapism? Gangster Squad is based on the story of LAPD officers and detectives who form a unit to keep Los Angeles safe from California’s most powerful criminal Mickey Cohen, and his gang, during the 1940s and ’50s.
Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn), intends to expand his criminal enterprise to Chicago and New York. He runs the town, bathing in drugs, guns, prostitutes and all with the protection of the police and the politicians who are under his control. Hard core, right? It’s enough to get even the bravest of the brave shaking in their boots. But oh no, not if you’re a secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who unite to kick some Cohen butt. A lotta action and good looking people so definitely check it out this evening.
Also starring Nick Nolte and Emma Stone.
