In the past few months or even years, Johnny Depp has been a big topic in the media less with his films and more with his War of the Roses with ex-wife Amber Heard . The million-dollar dispute in court not only cost the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star a lot of money and nerves, but also one or the other role – for example, in “Fantastic Beasts” he was simply replaced by Mads Mikkelsen . The long-awaited verdict finally came yesterday: Depp won and was not just awarded $15 million in damages, but much more, as the actor revealed after the verdict was announced: «The jury gave me my life back.»
Not only he, but also his many fans, who have had his back all this time and have campaigned on social media with the hashtag #JusticeForJohnnyDepp, among other things, can now concentrate on other things again — such as his films. And one such, namely the gangster film “ Public Enemies ”, is available on Netflix from today .
Anyone who wants to see the 58-year-old in a slightly different role should definitely have seen the action thriller by genre ace Michael Mann («Heat», «Collateral»). In the gangster story based on true events, Depp shines as bank robber legend John Dillinger and downright outplays his counterpart – and that’s none other than Oscar winner and character mime Christian Bale .
This is Public Enemies
USA in the 1930s: The country suffers from the Great Depression, which John Dillinger takes advantage of. Because the clever bank robber enjoys the admiration of the lower class, who look up to the charismatic gangster. Together with his partners John «Red» Hamilton ( Jason Clarke ) and Homer Van Meter ( Stephen Dorff ), the charismatic criminal lets nothing and nobody stop him. Even if the gang goes behind bars, it doesn’t take long for the next coup to be hatched.
