Set in 1949 Los Angeles, the drama film is based on true events. Penn plays Brooklyn-born Mob king Mickey Cohen, who rules the City of Angels, reaping his ill-gotten gains from drugs, guns, prostitutes and, if he has his way, every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it with the protection of his paid goons, as well as the police and politicians under his thumb.
Despite the movie’s string of A-name stars, critics weren’t too excited about Gangster Squad, giving it only 31% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Moviegoers liked it better, giving the film 64%. The movie grossed $46 million in U.S. theaters.
Both the DVD and the Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack include the featurette “Tough Guys With Style” and digital copy and streaming via UltraViolet. But the Blu-ray also has these special features:
- commentary with director Ruben Fleischer
- “The Gangland Files”
- “Rogues Gallery: Mickey Cohen”
- deleted scenes.
