This film is not entirely historically accurate but it a lot of the time, in fact the behind the scenes shows you just how much is real. I love that they shot his death scene at the actual spot, literally at the spot. The 2 disc addition includes a lot of great special features including documentaries on the real Dillinger and outlaws of the time. Also there is a great commentary on disc 1. I recommend this film because I enjoyed it and thought it was a really good film. It is not the classic it could have been but it is still a very good movie.

I've read a few pieces debating the authenticity of the film, which I think was, overall, pretty solid ... probably much more so than other films that've tried to take a look at the era the popularized gangsters.

But after watching more I realized that it could …
