Public Enemies (2009)

Public Enemies (2009) — So I liked this movie but wasn’t blown away by it.  Michael Mann has done some great movies like Heat and The Insider and some pretty good movies like Ali and Collateral.  This was an okay movie like Miami Vice.  I can’t quite put my finger on what fell short for me.  I thought the acting was good, the story was good, I liked the pacing.  Most of the cinematography was pretty nice but sometimes the digital camerawork seemed a little low-tech.  Actually I noticed the same problem in Miami Vice and Collateral so maybe it’s just Mann’s new visual style.  An enjoyable movie, just one that never really sank in for me.
