As is the case with most recent movies involving a brooding Christian Bale and regular gunfire, Public Enemies looks good. In fact, with Michael Mann at the helm and Johnny Depp as Dillinger (reminding us he can play non-goofy, non-pirate roles), it looks really good. But none of these powerful elements are highlight of this new trailer for the film. The best part is Billy Crudup's spot-on old fashioney voice:
Classic cadence. It's like he's narrating a newsreel. I want Billy Crudup to do my voicemail as this character, alerting callers that I'm busy picking up dames at the speakeasy.
