Film: Gangster Squad

Gangster Squad had the potential to be a great film. The cast is stellar and the sets are fantastic. Unfortunately the derivative story and weak final shoot-out made it highly forgettable. Immediately after watching the movie on cheap Tuesday (£3.25 for a ticket), I felt generous and gave it 3 stars for it's simple, popcorn entertainment value. Having had a bit of time to reflect, I'm downgrading the rating as the film really should have delivered more than it did.

** 1/2
