From Back Cover:
"Like no other American gangster film."
-Pete Hammond, Maxim
From award-winning director Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral) coems the film inspired by one of the country's most captivating and infamous outlaws- John Dillinger.
Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean series) stars as the charismatic and elusive bank robber marked by the FBI as America's first "Public Enemy Number One." Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose) plays Billie Frechette, the only woman capable of capturing his heart. Hunted relentlessly by top FBI agent Melvin Purvis (Christan Bale, The Dark Knight), Dillinger engages in an explosive, legendary showdown. "It's a landmark crime saga" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone).
Too long and not nearly as good as I had hoped it would be, though it was entertaining enough and I do love me some Johnny Depp.
Rated R (MPAA)
