My Thoughts on Public Enemies

I do have to say that story of John Dillinger is quite an interesting one.

I thought that Johnny Depp’s performance as Dillinger was a good one and I also thought that Christian Bale did an OK job as the FBI agent pursuing him.

My major complaint with the film is that the story progressed a bit slowly and I’m sure that the 140 minute running time could have been trimmed down in places.

That said it was still and OK film and it would be worth a look.
