I'm talking about the fact that he robbed banks and killed people.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

I can almost forgive the fact that he robbed banks. Just look at the time. 1933. The economy was terrible and the general public felt betrayed by the government. He actually wound up giving a lot of money back to people. A lot of people back then really didn't even mind that he was robbing banks. Several rejoiced in it.

That's true.  He was the ROBIN HOOD of that era.  Once during robbing the bank on the counter he notices bunch change and there is a man standing there. Dillinger asks him if it's his money or the banks.  This was in the book also,  in the movie as well.

Yeah, it was more his buddies that usually did all the killing (George Nelson) than him. He was very much opposed to killing. I've researched him and the era in general and he didn't want anyone to ever die. He was a suave guy.

Yep...  He was kind to others and kind to women.

So and so.This movie is very good for the action,but quite boring in telling the story.I also think that the ending was done too fast.

Yeah, it wasn't as smooth as it could have been.

That's true.  It could be a little bit dramatic.  All we saw was a scene without no dialogue which was cool, but I agree with you guys.  Johnny Depp's expression was telling what he was feeling based on what was showing in MANHATTHAN MELODRAMA.

Yeah,the scene at the cinema was nothing special,except for the speaker warning viewers against Dillinger,that was cool.But I had the feeling that the very end (when they are out) was done in a hurry.

Longer chase would be great.  I don't have complaint about how Michael Mann ended it, but a longer chase would be good.  Good point, Marco.  I think in reality he was shot right outside the theatre after he came out.

Maybe this is the reason.Mann wanted to make it as close to reality as possible.
