Dillinger and Capone is far-fetched fiction; it starts out with the premise that John Dillinger did not really die outside the Biograph Theatre. (His brother did.) It further revises history by inventing a meeting in which Al Capone (F. Murray Abraham) strong-arms the retired Dillinger (Martin Sheen) into helping him retrieve a fortune sealed inside the wall of a mobster-filled hotel. The film gets so caught up with this heist that it comes off more as a caper film than as the gangster movie you’d expect from the title. It’s all dressed up in pin-striped suits, with no place to go. C-
