In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James "Whitey" Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.

    This movie is up there with the all time great gangster movies, godfather, good fellas, casino, this is a raw gritty dark gangster movie. The acting is great across the board and the action is realistically intense. Definite worth the watch, and a purchase.
  • It’s a biopic

    By chrismays
    It’s a biopic about someone you aren’t familiar with. It’s uneven and jumps around. Pretty boring
  • brilliant performances

    The movie itself was amazing. Many people compare it to the Departed and although that is a great film in itself, Black Mass is more subtle instead of dramatized. Brilliant performance by Johnny Depp. If i hadn't already known he was in it, I wouldn't have guessed.
  • Same Depp acting

    By Anthony Bern
    The story was very interesting and I think it was very well directed but I could not go over the fact that when you see Johnny Depp you don't believe he is playing the character. I think he did not transmit. The movie was good but the fact that i could not believe the main character made me give it 3 stars.
  • Amazing!!

  • Good Story

    I liked the story and Depp does a good job of acting, I really forgot he was Johnny Depp and I saw Whitey Bulger. Edgerton over acted and wasn't believable. Peter Sarsgaard, what can I say he's horrible, can't understand why he is still employed. Worst actor ever.
  • Depp at his Best

    By dpmod111
    One of Depp's greatest performances, he is Bulger! if you want a true portrayal of the Bulger story then this is it, not the glitzy Departed!, Please give Depp more roles like this!

  • A Little Boring At Times

    By CommanderJoe349
    Some of the best acting I've seen from Johnny Depp in years. My one real complaint about the movie is it's too long. It just kinda felt like it was dragging on near the end.

    You've seen him in almost every film that Tim Burton has ever made, you've learned to love him as the adorable Captain (emphasis there!) Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Carribean. Now see Johnny Depp as the chilling Jimmy 'Whitey' Bolger. As with any role he's played, Depp is extremely committed to this caracter which almost makes it harder to watch. Even his piercing eyes make it all the more believeable. Freakishly amazing!
