100 Word Movie Review : Public Enemies

A mobster movie starring Captain Jack Sparrow, Dr Manhattan and Batman was always promising too much. Public Enemies is quite good, but with the promise of that cast I was expecting fantastic. Enemies tells the true story of mobster, John Dillinger (Depp) who likes to see himself as Champion of the Common Folk because this makes it easier for him to hit on attractive women and get cheered by press when arrested.  Dramatic “shaky camera shots” increase tension whenever Dillinger leaps out of bed to elude the coppers, but that tension is sorely lacking for the rest of the film.
