I ended my theatrical review of Public Enemies with the following line: I am leaving room for this one to grow on me or slowly settle down to the middle, but one thing's for certain, it had my wheels spinning and may likely end up an all-time classic of mine a few years down the line. This is the approach I try to take to all films whether I like them out of the box or not, but this one in particular felt like a film that was either going to slowly attach itself or just die away quietly. My expectations, as with other Mann films such as Heat and Thief (unfortunately not Miami Vice), were that this one would improve upon repeated viewings and after watching Universal's Blu-ray release it does just that. As a matter of fact I no longer have any doubts as to this film's quality »
