FACTUALLY INACCURATE. Pretty Boy Floyd was NOT shot by Purvis. He was shot by Retired Officer Chester K. Smith of East Liverpoool Ohio PD on October 22, 1934. Floyd only had 2 .45s, not a machine gun. Smith did alleged that Purvis did order the murder Floyd after Floyd after hew tried to get some questions about theh Kansas City Massacre, but Purvis denied this. Baby Face Nelson was killed

what a disappointment...this movie was terrible. shot in our home state, Wisconsin, this film was 'let's walk out" within 10 minutes. I love Johnny Depp...but this film did nothing to add to his resume.

Wow what a DUD! This was one of the most anticipated movies that was an absolute mess! Horrible editing, emotionless characters that have no character development. I spent a buck and a quarter at the cheap movie place and still did not get my moneys worth. DO NOT Waste YOUR TIME!
