Public Enemies

Rated R

The title of the book was "Publis EnemieS" (Plural)

By stonejones on 7/12/2009

  • Overall Rating: 3

This move was lame on so many levels. Michael Mann direction was horrible, his use of cameras awful, sticking to the story in the book..completely off and inexcusable. The books whole premise is that 1933-34 was an era in US history where because of multiple criminals and gangs we needed a national police force, (The FBI), This entire movie is about one, John Dillinger, with only minor mention of Baby Face Nelson and his ultimate demise was completely depicted wrong. The book begins with the Kansas City Massacre, and was noted as being the Beginning of the crime wave, (never even mentioned in this movie). Depps acting was just barely passable. In short, this movie really sucked and will soon be forgotten.

This movie is extremely boring & a HUGE waste of time. You will leave feeling like YOU'VE been robbed! Although I liked Marion Cotillard a bit...
