Public Enemies Review

Public Enemies

Such high hopes.  How could this movie possibly not be any good?  Johnny Depp and Christian Bale as opposing forces in their lead roles?  How could it not be fantastic, right?

Well, it’s not. It’s not even close to fantastic. It’s not even close to good.  It’s 2 hours and 20 minutes of your life that you’ll never get back.  It’s 2 hours and 20 minutes that you’ll wish the movie would just end so you could go home.

Every time Dillinger (Depp) got captured, I thought “This it it! It’s over! I can go home now.”  But alas, he always escaped prison, and went on the run again. Over, and over, and over and over again.  It seemed like the whole movie was him escaping from the cops, and being on the run.

The movie focused very little on the actual bank robbing, and the “publicly loved” portion of Dillinger’s career as a crook.  Instead the movie made it a point to show how dumb the FBI were in their initial stages.Many times Dillinger walks right down the street in front of an Agent, and they don’t notice.  At one point he walks into a squad room at the Chicago Police Station that says “Dillinger Squad” on its door, and they don’t even notice! Seriously?  What the hell? Did this really happen?

The movie had entirely too much “shaky camera” in it.  At times all I could think was “put the friggen camera on a tripod or somethin'” or “don’t let the guy with Parkinson’s hold the camera!”  Shoddy camera work, coupled with a barely audible voice track made it a very unenjoyable experience for me.  Add in a boring story and plot for the film, and you’ve got a movie that I’m beyond pissed about having seen.

On Tuesday of this past week, I read a review on another site that said “Public Enemies is the best movie of the year.”  I shall not name that website by name, nor will I ever visit it again.  That’s the problem with sites (such as ours), you trust their opinion, and you get screwed.  I should have known — a glowing review the day before a movie comes out can only mean one thing; the writer got a big fat check from a movie studio to say what they said.

Here’s the part where I warn you not to see this movie.  If you know me, if you’ve visited this site before, you know how hard this is for me. I love Christian Bale. I have a bromance and a man crush on him. It’s no secret.  For me to tell you not to see this movie must mean something.  Stay away. Stay far away.  Regardless of how you feel about Johnny Depp or Christian Bale. You do not want to see this movie. I assure you.

Christian Bale and Johnny Depp. Is there a twosome that guarantees more money be made, than these two?

  Heard with Depp?

Amber Heard is in negotiations to play the coveted female lead opposite Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary, the adaptation of the Hunter S. Thompson novel, which Bruce Robinson has written and will be directing.

You’re probably wondering why you know the name Amber Heard. She had a tiny part in Alpha Dog, but most recently was Angie in Pineapple Express, opposite Seth Rogen and James Franco.

She may not be famous just yet, but being in a movie with Johnny Depp is a sure fire way to get there overnight.




  Depp Over Paid For Pirates 4?
Posted by: Mike on Oct 7th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

A few weeks ago, we found out that the studio execs over at Disney had gone ahead and green lit a whole bunch of new Johnny Depp movies.

News surfaced yesterday, albeit from some questionable sources, that Depp is going to be paid roughly $54 million to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, which would make him the highest paid actor for a single film (up front payment, not including backend points.)

The highest paid actor for any single film, including backend points, surprisingly, is Keanu Reeves, for the second two Matrix films, in which he earned an estimated $97 each for.




  Johnny Depp Is Going To Be A Busy Guy
Posted by: Mike on Sep 25th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

Just since I left the office last night, all sorts of Depp news has hit the wire.  Rumors have been confirmed.

  • Depp will reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean flick.
  • Depp has been cast as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland (no surprise, we know Burton has a bromance with Depp.)
  • Depp has been cast in The Lone Ranger, as Tonto.

Also, in other awesome movie news:

  • Cars 2 is being worked on for release in 2011.
  • Iron Man comes out on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday.
  • Warner Brothers has green lit a prequel to I Am Legend.

It was a pretty busy night for movie news, apparently.




  Surprise. Surprise – Depp and Burton Team Up Again
Posted by: Christine on Jul 28th, 2008 Leave a Comment »

It’s no secret that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have giant man-crushes on each other, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The pair has brought us Sweeney Todd, Corpse Bride, and the unforgettable Edward Scissorhands. Now it’s being reported that Depp will appear in Burton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland as the Mad Hatter.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Depp pops up in the film, but so far it’s missing from his IMDb page.

Alice is supposed to start shooting next year and is set for release in 2010.
