Empire - Unnamed
Intelligent and challenging: Mann's crime epic could take two viewings to fully absorb, but it's worth every devoted minute.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
This is a very good film, with Depp and Bale performances of brutal clarity. I'm trying to understand why it is not quite a great film. I think it may be because it deprives me of some stubborn need for closure.

Miami Herald - Rene Rodriguez
Michael Mann's extraordinary Public Enemies is an unusual sort of gangster picture, a near-impressionistic recreation of the last year in the life of one of American history's most notorious bank robbers.

Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Public Enemies comes at you like Dillinger did: all of a sudden. It's movie dynamite.

Chicago Tribune - Michael Phillips
It's a fascinating bundle of contradictions -- authentic in a million details, deeply romanticized in others. Cool, calm and collected, this is more love story than gangster picture.

Public Enemies (2009)



Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger's charm and audacity endear him to much of America's downtrodden public, but he's also a thorn in the side of J. Edgar Hoover and the fledgling FBI. Desperate to capture the elusive outlaw, Hoover makes Dillinger his first Public Enemy Number One and assigns his top agent, Melvin Purvis, the task of bringing him in dead or alive.
