GANGSTER SQUAD may be the best movie to be released in January...ever. Usually the dumping ground for crappy studio mistakes, the movie was delayed due to controversy surrounding the Aurora theater shooting but now will have no real competition at the box office.

These six new clips showcase the violent core of the movie including Ryan Gosling going all DRIVE on a guy by pouring acid on his balls. Damn, that is f*cked up. The other clips feature Josh Brolin using a table to beat the shit out of some guys and a lot of speeches.

Plot: Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten 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. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop... except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.

These clips do have a glossy, superficial look to them that worries me that this is going to be a bit cartoony and not enough like THE UNTOUCHABLES or L.A. CONFIDENTIAL. But, I will still give the movie a shot.

GANGSTER SQUAD stars Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Pena, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone and Sean Penn and opens everywhere on January 11th.

Um, isn't that insensitive all the victims who've had their crotch on fire. I think they should go back and reshoot as not to offend those of us who've had their balls dipped in acid.

I was hope for scorched marbles, but all I got was some singed gabardine. When will Hollywood give us a true ball burning epic?

Time for a remake.

I really wish somebody would make a FACTUAL account of the Untouchables. Brian DePalma's film was fun, but took a lot of liberties with the story/characters...

Time to upgrade from basic cable. The History Channel has all the "real" history you could ever want. Speaking for myself, The Untouchables was just about perfect and I never had any illusions that it was 100% accurate factually. When you make movies based upon historical events it's almost always necessary to condense timelines or make make composite characters that reperesent two or three people. The minutia of real history would be almost impossible to preserve in anything other than a

The minutia of real history would be almost impossible to preserve in anything other than a documentary... and a documentary wouldn't have actors like Kevin Costner, Sean Connery and Robert De Niro.
