Welcome movie lovers! Today we dip into our fan requests and review the 2009 depression era gangster film starring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, Public Enemies. Not gangster topics include YouTube, $0.15 movies at AMC, and we have a Blu-ray giveaway to enter!
This film is a perfect example of a great gangster film with one major issue, it’s long! Bale and Depp perfect the cat and mouse game with their historical representations of Melvin Purvis and John Dillinger. The costuming is excellent along with the sets and gun fights. The cars are absolutely stunning! They even use them properly with period accurate getaways and shootouts. The supporting cast is fantastic including the likes of Jason Clarke, Giovanni Ribisi, and Marion Cotillard, to name a few. If you have not seen this film yet you are missing out. Public Enemies is currently streaming on Netflix. Mysterious Mike gives the film 3.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt, ever the lenient one, gives the gangster shoot 'em up 4 out of 5 Reels.
Next week is Mike’s pick. He decided to continue our exploration of new Netflix Original films with Project Power starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Don’t forget to listen to the whole pod and enter our giveaway for a free Blu-Ray copy of The King of Staten Island. Thanks for listening and we will chat at you next week!
