Public Enemies

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Two of the best actors in Hollywood, Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, go head to head in a 1930's caper tale. In the tradition of traditional caper/heist films, Public Enemies is about the FBI chasing down a gang of bank robbers, the leader being played by Johnny Depp, during the emerging crime wave of the 1930s. This a film that takes place in the 1930s but has somewhat a modern sensebility, clean cut filmmaking, fast edits, and quick pace. Everything I love from a fun action movie! It's been too long since a true American gangster film has been made!
