Overview

Public Enemies

Based on author Bryan Burrough's ambitious tome Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-43, director Michael Mann's sprawling historical crime drama follows the efforts of top FBI agent Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale ) in capturing notorious bank robber John Dillinger. A folk hero to the American public thanks to his penchant for robbing the banks that many people believed responsible for the Great Depression, charming bandit Dillinger (Johnny Depp) was virtually unstoppable at the height of his criminal career; no jail could hold him, and his exploits endeared him to the common people while making headlines across the country. J. Edgar Hoover's (Billy Crudup) FBI was just coming into formation, and what better way for the ambitious lawman to transform his fledgling Bureau of Investigation into a national police force than to capture the gang that always gets away? Determined to bust Dillinger and his crew, which also included sociopathic Baby Face Nelson (Stephen Graham) and Alvin Karpis (Giovanni Ribisi), Hoover christened Dillinger the country's very first Public Enemy Number One, and unleashed Purvis to take them down by whatever means necessary. But Purvis underestimated Dillinger's ingenuity as a master criminal, and after embarking on a frantic series of chases and shoot-outs, the dashing agent humbly surmised that he was in over his head. Outwitted and outgunned, Purvis knew that his only hope for busting Dillinger's gang was to baptize a crew of Western ex-lawmen as official agents, and orchestrate a series of betrayals so cunning that even America's criminal mastermind wouldn't know what hit him. Marion Cotillard, Channing Tatum, and Stephen Dorff co-star.

this is a badass crime action thriller, it's got tons of intense action, a great theme song, and johnny depp's performance as john Dillinger was awesome, I thought he was perfect as Dillinger :)

I am somewhat familiar with the story of John Dillinger & such, and as far as what I know, the movie seemed pretty accurate. The shoot out scenes were done well, and the acting was very good. Huge Johnny Depp fan...not very many movies of his I've seen that I didn't like, most especially his Tim Burton stuff. Overall, this was a great gangster flick. I highly recommend it if you are into such films.

I adore Johnny Depp's acting style and eagerly awaited the release of Public Enemies. Dillinger's history has always fascinated me and the opportunity to see Depp play this iconic gangster was a thrill I couldn't wait to see. Granted, the movie had great costuming, music, and appeared to be historically accurate. The acting is what led to my bad review. Depp was stellar, as always, but I felt the other actors were a bit stiff and unbelievable in their portrayals. The movie did hold a lot of promise, reaching but never quite touching that realm that would have made it stellar.

Very slow, lacking any form of personal role developement Nicely filmed,good sets, good wardrobe, but totally empty. Not a patch on Lawrence Tierney's "Dillinger"
