About the movie
Gangster Squad (Cert 15), directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), is a gripping action thriller based on the true story of the famous LA mob king Mickey Cohen and his never ending war with the LAPD.
Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn, Milk, Mystic River) runs the show in his town, reaping cash from underground activity. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control.
He’s enough to intimidate even the most street hardened cops. Except, that is, a secret crew of LAPD outsiders who take it upon themselves to tear Cohen's world apart.
With an all star cast including Oscar® award nominees Josh Brolin (True Grit), Ryan Gosling (Drive), Nick Nolte (Warrior) and Emma Stone (The Help) Gangster Squad is guaranteed to be one of the biggest action movies of 2013.
Gangster Squad (Cert 15) will be showing in cinemas nationwide from 10 January 2013.
