I have been wanting to watch this one since 2 weeks back. And I am suppose to watch it with him.
Okay stop it...lets not go there.
The movie is based on a true story of a notorious bank robbers in the 1930's named Jon Dillinger, and surprisingly, he's just an average guy with just an average look....as you can see in this wanted mugshots...
But lo and behold.....70 years something later, Hollywood revamped him into somewhat a juicy bad biy everone wants to be with.....
Oh Johnny Depp....you will forever be my one true love that never dissapoint me, your presence....
Ehem ehem...I am addressing the public here, let's not go to the mush mush.
It a 2 and a half hour movie depicting the life (and eventually death) of JD and his gang of robbers and the pursuit of the FBI agent, Melvin Purvis (acted by Christian Bale - somehow in here he's not as juicy as Mr Batman) to catch the cheeky thieves.
Or maybe profesional. In the book of thieves.
The scene is set in the 1930's and they have the set nailed down to the very last bit....the town, the costume, the guns, the cars...
Anyways, JD's love interest is none other than the famous Lady Dior's Marion Cottilard...
What I don't really like about the movie is the fact that police back in those days simply execute the robbers to the end and not nothering to apprehend them with evidence and tried them judicially. I know, its so much simpler to just shoot a bandit and get it over and done with rather than go through years in court and jail but then, no matter how bad a person is, don't they deserve a fair trial?
All in all I would give it a go if you're looking for heavy drama. The plot is a bit slow, but is watchable. Expect a strong cast...if you look closely even the 5 minute scene of Pretty Boy Floyd is acted by Channing Tatum. and they also have Leelee Sobieski in it.
I just enjoy it because JD is an eye-candy. Period.
