About this movie

From award-winning director Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral) comes 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 (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight), Dillinger engages in an escalating game of outrunning and outgunning the FBI, culminating in an explosive, legendary showdown. "It’s a landmark crime saga" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone).

The editing and camera work is very inconsistent; some scenes have perfect muddy shadows and others have absolutely no color correction and the lighting is fuzzy and washes out everything. The shots go from huge crane swoops to handheld documentary style positions. Whoever was editing this movie ran out of time or didn't know how to adapt the use of different cameras together.

I know the story was about John Dillenger but at the same time they messed up the order in which the guys of the gang died so therefore I'm giving it a 4 star there some other things that were messed up in the movie but hey nobody's perfect even though they had all the materials!
