What's the film about?

Set in 1949, the film is about a ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen who runs town, getting his money gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and -if he has his way- every wire bet placed west of Chicago.

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.

No cop is brave enough to stop him...except a small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.

Who's in it? Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn

Handbag hearts:

The cast are amazing! We know quite a few people may only be going to see this because Ryan Gosling looks unbelievably fit in a suit - so so fit- but it's all about Sean Penn and Josh Brolin.

Don't get us wrong, Ryan gives a pretty good performance as well and we love his character's cheeky one liners and impressive lighter skills.

But Sean Penn is great as the legendary actor and we could almost understand the way the mob king thanks to his portrayal of Mickey Cohen.

With his delivery of quotes like, "You're looking at God b*itch so better swear to me.", we have a feeling this performance is going to be remembered for a while

Emma Stone looks fabulous as always. Very Jessica Rabbit with her lovely dresses and beautiful locks.

Complaints: The flick is a true story about one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time so it's just a bit violent. But in a funny way somehow. Just make sure you go into the cinema prepared for some blood and gore.

Also, there isn't enough Ryan and Emma time but the film isn't Crazy Stupid Love part 2 so we have to be happy with what we've got.

Verdict: A mob flick that will go down well with the boys and the girls. Definitely worth a watch.

P.S. Big Ryan Gosling fans will appreciate the Mickey Mouse quote, a lovely reference to his Disney days!

Gangster Squad is out in cinemas now!
