But it is testament to how sympathetic De Niro's character seemed, even after seeing everything he was capable of. Mann and De Niro laid it all out on the line with the worst of his character, and still there was a likeable quality and that sorrow at his death. Likewise with Collateral, with Cruise's character (IMO). Show the audience the worst, and get them to connect despite of it all because of seeing the rest, too. That is what I am hoping for.
I think you have something there suec. Johnny will show Dillingers good side and his bad and despite the bad we will be in tears at the end.
