PUBLIC ENEMIES (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì


Public Enemies—gritty, no-nonsense bio film—tells how bank robber John Dillinger rose and fell. Johnny Depp and Christian Bale are perfect as the antagonist and protagonist and infinitely increase the interest level of the storyline due to their excellent character offset. The script organizes well into a very good watch for the adult audience.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie is a quality flick throughout, has been exceptionally well organized, and educates as well as entertains. The movie serves an adult audience due to sustained violence throughout and chosen subject matter.
