Storyline

After a shoot-out kills five FBI agents in Kansas City the Bureau target John Dillinger as one of the men to hunt down. Waiting for him to break Federal law they sort out several other mobsters, while Dillinger's bank robbing exploits make him something of a folk hero. Escaping from jail he finds Pretty Boy Floyd and Baby Face Nelson have joined the gang and pretty soon he is Public Enemy Number One. Now the G-men really are after him.

Good action yarn
1 February 2003 | by (AZ) – See all my reviews

Just watched this movie again after a number of years. Good entertainment and well done action sequences with top flight performances by Warren Oates, Ben Johnson and, Harry Dean Stanton (as usual). The influence of Peckinpah is obvious. As with most Hollywood interpretations of history, there are some historical liberties taken (the firefight's at Little Bohemia Lodge and in Mason City, Iowa for example). The performances of Michelle Phillips (amateurish) and Richard Dreyfess ("Baby Face" Nelson should have been portrayed as more of a 'lunatic' rather than 'obnoxious') detract a little from the film. However, overall a good movie with popcorn and a soda on Friday night.
