  • This movie made my ears hurt. Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and James Ellroy could have turned this pulp into insinuating jazz. What's here is a cartoonish bore. show more

  • Mr. Beall, a former LAPD cop, has written a script so devoid of feeling that the cartoons blur into thin line drawings, while what's been done with the marvelous Ms. Stone - i.e. next to nothing - is downright criminal. show more

  • Penn's over-the-top tirades and bullying threats are still there - it's a wild and woolly performance that isn't always as menacing as perhaps the actor intended it to be. show more

    What Mickey Cohen is this movie about? As for \"keeping the Mob out of L.A.\" what about the Unions in the movie industry? Mickey had connections through Bugsy Siegal and Meyer Lansky. They weren\'t the mob? As for the cop squad, they turned into gangsters too; just killing thugs. So it was just a shoot em up. Nothing more.
