GANGSTER SQUAD is a period crime drama in which a Los Angeles police officer leads a secret task force to bring down organised crime figures.

Violence

Scenes include gunfights and fistfights with resulting bloody detail. In one sequence a man is chained between two cars which are driven in opposite directions, ripping his body apart. In another a gangster's hand is held through an elevator grille, severing the limb. A woman is threatened with rape but is saved before anything happens.

Language

There is infrequent very strong language ('c**t'), use of strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker', 'c**ksucker'), and occasional discriminatory language.

Scenes include sexualised nudity and suggestive dancing in a club.
