Public Enemies

 (2009)

Public Enemies Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

No one could stop John Dillinger and his gang. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone -- from his girlfriend Billie Frechette to a public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression. But while the adventures of Dillinger' gang -- later including Baby Face Nelson and Alvin Karpis -- thrilled many, J. Edgar Hoover made Dillinger the first Public Enemy Number One and sent in Melvin Purvis, the dashing "Clark Gable of the FBI." However, Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis' men in wild chases and shootouts. Only after importing a crew of Western ex-lawmen (newly baptized as agents) and orchestrating epic betrayals -- from the infamous "Lady in Red" to the Chicago crime boss Frank Nitti -- were Purvis, the FBI and their new crew of gunfighters able to close in on Dillinger.

Public Enemies Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

As he did with Collateral and Miami Vice, Mann shot the majority of Public Enemies with high definition cameras. The resulting image boasts greater detail and more revealing delineation, sure, but it also suffers from a harsh, digitized sheen (rife with shimmering hair and underbrush) that, at times, seems at complete odds with the subjects and era at hand. Still, regardless of one's appreciation or distaste for Mann's decision, it's difficult to deny the quality of Univeral's 1080p/VC-1 transfer. Colors, though regularly bathed in warm oranges and crisp whites, are rich and rewarding, skintones are convincing, and blacks are nearly bottomless. Likewise, textures are incredibly refined (particularly in close-ups) and foreground objects pop, lending the presentation a series of striking, occasionally jaw-dropping showcase shots. It helps that artifacting, banding, and crush are never an issue (well, aside from a lingering red light haunted by macroblocking), and source noise, while a bit more intrusive in some scenes (the worst of which occurs during a late-night shootout and subsequent car chase), isn't a significant problem.

My only legitimate complaint? As seems to be the case with many a Universal transfer, edge enhancement has been applied liberally, cursing high-contrast sequences and wide shots with obvious, sometimes distracting ringing. It certainly doesn't spoil the proceedings, but it does hinder the overall impact of Dante Spinotti's razor-sharp photography, even if ever so slightly. All things considered, the Blu-ray edition of Public Enemies remains quite faithful to Mann's vision and should please fans accordingly.


Public Enemies Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Let me cut to the chase. Public Enemies storms Blu-ray with a thundering yet nuanced DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track; one that renders gunfire as deafening and frightening as it should be. Unlike Transformers 2, G.I. Joe, and other Bay-inspired modern mixes, Mann's film draws listeners in with subtly and silence before assaulting them with roaring shotgun blasts and spewing Tommy Guns. The LFE channel is tremendously successful, imbuing everything from shootouts to the swell of Elliot Goldenthal's score with genuine presence. I wouldn't watch this one if anyone in your house is hoping to get some sleep. Even so, dialogue is clean and intelligible, rear speaker activity is involving, and the soundfield continually wraps its burly arms around all those in the vicinity. Pans are just as proficient; effects practically dance from speaker to speaker. Granted, directionality is a tad spotty and several scenes are strangely front-heavy (Dillinger's first press conference is surprisingly two-dimensional), but interior acoustics are, more often than not, believable (especially when it comes to the film's prisons, banks, and hotels). Even though some viewers will need to keep their fingers hovering over the volume buttons on their remotes, it's difficult to deny that Public Enemies sounds fantastic. Enjoy, dear readers, enjoy.
