There is everything wrong, most of it bad and very little good in this dark and dry case from Michael Mann’s film collection. The biggest sin of Michael Mann’s Public Enemies is that it doesn’t make you feel anything. Nothing. Well, if being repellent to the idea, world and characters counts, then count me in. For a film that has no loose end to follow or at least we, as an audience, would hope to follow, the runtime (something I never complain about, nor do I like to) feels like a statement sealed by the government as a punishment in order to improve yourself as a better citizen. There is no inner voice left in me, by the end of an hour, for me to finish the film except the courtesy you have when you start a film. Just finish it and me.
