Only kinda good, fellas

'Gangster Squad' talks the talk, walks crooked

By Ryan Syrek
Nothing brings back memories of Sean Penn’s history as a serial domestic abuser like watching him revel in a man being drawn-and-quartered by automobiles. What a weird choice to take a cheesy, scene-chewing, 1940s mob-boss role at this point in his career.
