Mini Review - Gangster Squad

Gangster Squad (out Jan 10) is the story of a group of vigilante-type cops who try to stop a huge crime syndicate in Los Angeles. This is a film that never gets out of first gear. The characters are monotonous, over-confident, lacking in personality. Josh Brolin is particularly dull. The story itself feels like a tick the box exercise with no excitement generated. Grade: C+.
