Review: Public Enemies
What was the point?I struggle to understand why someone considered this story to be worth telling. There was very little by the way of intrigue or tension. None of the characters - though well acted - appealed to the audience or were seen to develop in any way throughout the film.
Too slow and lacking in motivation; I fidgeted in my seat waiting for this film to develop a sense of purpose. Half way through I realised this film was going nowhere, so instead decided to try and amuse myself by using it as a set and costume study, and even these elements left me wanting more.
In short, I was disappointed by this film. I had expected more.
