Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 (English Subtitled) 2010

R
4.1 out of 5 stars (12) IMDb 7.5/10

Now back in France, Mesrine is finally in police custody and facing justice for his crimes. After escaping a courtroom and kidnapping the judge at gunpoint, Mesrine is declared Public Enemy Number 1 and is eventually condemned to a maximum-security prison where he writes his memoirs, establishing himself as a household name and the anti-hero across France. Mesrine stages another daring escape and disappears into the lawless underworld, taunting the police and reinventing himself as a celebrity criminal through his savvy manipulation of the media. After such a monumental rise, comes the inevitable fall as the police close in, bringing the life of Jacques Mesrine to full bloody circle.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on April 7, 2011
Format: Amazon Video
Note: This film presentation is a direct continuation of the Jacque Mesrine crime saga that began with "Mesrine: Killer Instinct." If you haven't seen that film, you will probably want to in advance of screening this one. Both theatrically and for DVD distribution, this film was split into two distinct parts and packaged separately.

Branded his country's Public Enemy No. 1 for his international exploits during the sixties and seventies, Jacque Mesrine's notoriety brought him a certain celebrity status. With murders, bank heists, kidnappings, and bold prison breaks--Mesrine embraced his lawlessness with a flair and flamboyance that have maintained his cult appeal even thirty years after his death. Adapting Mesrine's own memoir, writer/director Jean-Francois Richet has divided Mesrine's escapades into two feature films. The first--"Mesrine: Killer Instinct"--charts his initiation into a gangster existence and his rise to worldwide attention while this follow-up "Mesrine: Public Enemy #1" charts the height and end stages of his criminal career. Where the first installment was an episodic character study that explained Mesrine's descent into crime, this film boldly takes on the appeal of a full fledged action epic.

Don't expect any back story or recap going into "Public Enemy #1." The narrative starts right off with an exciting court house escape and the momentum rarely wanes. Vincent Cassel delivers a performance of much power and charm as the relentless Mesrine. These years (the seventies) have Cassel embracing his criminal notoriety and fame. Filled with bravado, Mesrine toys with the cops and fashions himself a true celebrity bad boy. Heck, the most brutal sequence in the film is directly related to Mesrine have received some unfavorable press!

Saw Mesrine - Killer Instinct over a year ago and couldn't find the sequel anywhere to rent it. I'm glad Amazon has it on instant download... it's just as good as the first movie - and if you Wiki Jacques Mesrine, it's amazing how close the movies are to this guy's real life.

I could hardly wait to see Part 2 after seeing Mesrine, Killer Instinct. The whole film was exciting, excellently acted by Vincent Cassel as the lead, and had a small role by Ludivine Sagnier, my favorite French actress, as his lover/wife. Based on a true story, Mesrine had quite a life of criminal activity, spanning the years from young manhood to later hardened, bitterly anti-social and "heroic" figure, who thumbed his nose at France's police and justice system. A French "Goodfellas" it has been called. Great film.

I had movie night with some friends from work and we enjoyed this immensely. The story and just how crazy this person was, kept us on the edge of our seats. We couldn't wait to watch the second part.

This one's maybe slightly more interesting than Part 1, because this guy always had something going on - prison escapes, kidnappings, etc. Decent entertainment though nothing new.

Wonderfully enthralling story, must watch in French. Vincent Cassal is as good as it gets. The two parts are distinctively different in tone and work great together.
