Public Enemies ( Blu-ray )

Johnny Depp plays Depression-era, celebrity gangster John Dillinger, in Michael Mann's bio-pic. Christian Bale co-stars as the ambitious Agent Purvis sent by J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup), head of the newly-created F.B.I., to take down the notorious bankrobber and his gang. Full of swagger and natural charisma, Dillinger has charmed an American public disenchanted with authority, but his choice of career has him on a path of certain destruction. Mann's penchant for intensity over action makes this more of a tense drama than a shoot 'em up thriller; handsomely mounted and packed with atmosphere, historical inaccuracies may be excused.
