    How surprising it is when you realize that some actors have no limit? That's what's happening with Christian Bale and Johnny Depp. You just can't distinguish actor from character. You can't tell when one begin and the other ends. Even Dillinger's side smile is perfectly played.

    Changing the subject, I can't understand what goes on a director's mind. As if it wasn't slow enough, Michael Mann seems to drag this movie even in the action scenes. Don't get me wrong, these are 140 minutes of 'must see', but you will get bored. Eventually you will realize that you are sat watching a movie. I don't know why it's a trend now, but Hollywood is killing the soundtracks. Countless minutes of the sound of Thompsons shooting around and blinking in front of you.

    On the other side, there's the truly unique cinematography implied in here. From the mentioned blinking fire guns quickly changing to handycams running through the woods. It's amazing to see the dark 30's Chicago at night in such quality.

    Giving the cast, the overwelming actuations and the cinematography, but keeping apart the boredom: it is one of the best movies of this century.
