Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThis is a very good film, with Depp and Bale performances of brutal clarity. I'm trying to understand why it is not quite a great film. I think it may be because it deprives me of some stubborn need for closure. His name was John Dillinger, and he robbed banks. But there had to be more to it than that, right? No, apparently not.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconMann has made gunplay films both good (Heat) and intriguingly flawed (Miami Vice) but never one so oddly half-cocked.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconPublic Enemies comes at you like Dillinger did: all of a sudden. It's movie dynamite.

Tomatometer quote iconMichael Mann's latest is a competent and technically impressive gangster flick with charismatic lead performances, but some may find the film lacks truly compelling drama.
