We saw it last night. I am a big Johnny Depp fan and this movie has an incredible cast.
I am not, however, a Michael Mann fan, and it left me with the impression that I was watching Miami Vice, set in 1933 Chicago. The performances are first rate, but the directing left a LOT to be desired.

I went with my son and Eric's critique is dead on. The movie while good left me wanting more. And it portrays Dillinger as a Robin Hood Do Good type character. It's not a movie I would pay to see a second time. More like a made for televison type of movie, not the grand cinematic event it could have been, especially with a great cast. _________________ He who finds no pleasure in a naked sword, a falcon's flight, a noble horse, a beautiful woman, has no real lust for life.

I told Jill after it was over I enjoyed but it wasn't something I would buy to watch over and over, i might rent it sometime. A few historical inaccuracies, but then what doesn't have those? All in all, I guess not a bad way to spend a couple hours on a hot summer night.
A compliant press, broadcast and print from the big cities, running cover for advocates of state solutions that always end up making things worse.... oops...wrong movie... :o) _________________ "The revolution will not be televised."
