My opinion

Recently I saw “Gangster Squad” and this one was still waiting for an opportunity for me to watch. Johnny Depp in a gangster movie. I assumed this movie might be a surprise, because of him. The opening scene made me sit back and I thought “This is going to be a must-see movie!”

Public Enemies

But then it turned out to be a banal gangster story, despite the fact that it’s about the legendary and famous John Dilinger. And this crime story is interwoven with a tale about his affaire with Billie Frechette (Marion Cotillard).

Public Enemies

What follows is a story that jumps all over the place with a few ridiculous scenes. Like the firefight in the woods where they were hiding. It’s a mystery to me there were still trees standing upstraiht afterwards. And for example John Dillinger, the most wanted gangster, who walks nervously along a street when his girlfriend is arrested. And not one of the dozens of agents standing there, recognizes him. Really nobody?

Public Enemies

In the end it’s not a movie as “Once Upon a Time in America” or “Goodfellas“. And certainly not “The Untouchables”. But it was a pleasant watch eventually !

My rating 6/10
