Public Enemies (2009)

Christian Bale as Special Agent Melvin Purvis

John Dillinger, played by the dashing Johnny Depp

John Dillinger's love interest, Billie Frechette (Marion Cotillard)

The FBI agents who chase after the mob

J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup)


Based on a true story, the FBI try to take down notorious American gangsters, John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a booming crime wave in the 1930s.

The props and costumes are pretty impressive, but the film lacks compelling drama.

Rating: 2.5/5.
