Public Enemies

After watching yet another war-in-the-streets, bang-bang, shoot-em-up, I-love-the-feeling-of-this-killing-machine-in-my-hand film from the dream factory, I’m wondering if many public enemies are operating not in Chicago, but in Hollywood. On this occasion, I refer to Michael Mann’s unnecessarily long Public Enemies (2009). What were you thinking, Johnny Depp? Money? And David Wenham. I was surprised to spot him in this load of – and if he had a line I missed it.

'The Feds try to take down notorious American gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a booming crime wave in the 1930s.'
