The true story of one of America’s most violent and infamous gangsters, Whitey Bulger. Johnny Depp stars as Bulger, who was the brother of a state senator and was eventually convinced to wear a wire for the FBI to bring down the Italian mafia in Boston after they invaded his territory.
“To the extent that Scott Cooper’s goal is to relate the events of Whitey Bulger’s life between 1975 and 1995, he succeeds. As a straightforward bio-pic, Black Mass works. ” -ReelViews -James Berardinelli
“Depp shines in a solid gangster biopic.” -The Hollywood Reporter -Todd McCarthy
