Movie: Gangster Squad

So it was Gangster Squad or a romantic comedy. Probably we should have gone with the romantic comedy but Gangster Squad is visually beautiful in both the sets and the costumes.

A dyspeptic but quite entertaining A.O. Scott calls it a "costume party run amok." It is not quite as bad as he makes out, but the cast never quite gels as an ensemble and the writing is ... well ... not as pretty as the sets.

Not really recommended.
