    SYNOPSIS

    Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians he has under his thumb. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop...except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Sgt. Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.

    I saw this in the cinema. It was all right. Kind of mediocre. Had its moments. But I will never see it again as long as I live, as it left really no desire for me to do so.

    Finally saw this, and I'll agree with the Swede...it was pretty mediocre. Some great performances, and some wicked beatdowns, but it was pretty by-the-numbers. Also not for people who like movies based on historic figures to be factual.

    ^^ Bummer. The trailer is badass. So much so that I'm still tempted to by it.

    It's worth seeing....not sure it's worth buying.

    I wouldn't, anyway.

    Saw this the other night. I liked aspects of it, like the old pulp magazine feel it had. Liked some of the performances like Josh Brolin and Sean Penn. But it was an LA version The Untouchables. Same fucking story. Ultra violence with a bit of flair is what it was. Watch again? Not by choice but if it was on, I'd not get up to do something else.

    Why does Sean Penn wear facial prosthetics that make him look like Sean Penn?
    Now everyone can have a complete KRULL lifestyle.
