#16 Public Enemies (July 1)
What should not be missed about "Public Enemies"? It presents a modern day Robin Hood-esque figure through legendary Depression-era outlaw John Dillinger, who was named America's first Public Enemy Number One and hailed as national hero, after launching one of the most dizzying crime sprees ever recorded. The movie also chronicles the attempt of J. Edgar Hoover's golden-boy agent, Melvin Purvis, to bring him down. And the fact that this crime drama movie has Johnny Depp and Christian Bale as the two leading men certainly helps to make it worth seen. Adding more spice to this crime drama is Michael Mann, the man behind 1981's "Thief" and 1995's "Heat".
