I watched public enemies last night, as an avid Jonny Depp fan I have been looking forward to it for ages, and it lived up to all of my expectations. The film is set during the great depression and focuses on the true story of FBI agent Melvin Purvis’s attempts to stop criminals John Dillenger, baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd. The film is an adaptation of Bryan Burrough’s non fiction book Public Enemies: America’s greatest crime wave and the birth of the FBI. The opening scene is full of action Dillenger and Hamilton overpowering several guards to break free members of their gang from prison, the film carries on packed with excitement and a love twist and is complimented by a brilliant sound track, public enemies is definitely a film I recommend watching.
