Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1 [L'ennemi public n°1]

Second part of the biopic about a bungling criminal whose ineptitude is only exceeded by the police force pursuing him, thus by default making him Public Enemy No. 1.
The story in this one still skitters about like a baby giraffe on an ice rink but it's far more entertaining than the first due to it's focus on Cassel running around shooting guns (and usually missing), escaping from prisons (by waving guns around) and crashing cars (whilst attempting to escape).

  1. 2 movies that together made a very good, yet somewhat unsatisfying, whole. I think the problem was too much incident and not enough drama.
