Variety gave the film a mixed review, complimenting the direction and this historical look while taking note of factual errors and questioning the somewhat positive portrayal of Dillinger. The Chicago Tribune praised Mark Harmon's "steamy portrayal", but also took note of factual inaccuracies and particularly disliked the fact that the movie was shot in Milwaukee, standing in for Chicago, even though historical locations such as the Biograph Theater were still available in Chicago. Entertainment Weekly strongly disliked the film, giving it a "D" grade and criticizing it as "slow and aimless" and Harmon as "the stiffest sexiest-man-alive imaginable."
