Johnny has done some real duds in the last couple of years. This is not one of them.
Black Mass is getting big buzz.
Depp plays Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger who collaborates with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the 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.
Apparently Johnny Depp and Benedict Cumberbatch both give killer performances. There has already been a lot of buzz regarding Depp’s transformation into the notorious gangster “Whitey” Bulger. There has also been just as much talk about Cumberbatch’s performance that many think that this film could see Oscar nominations for both men.
Besides the early award whispers, the reason you need to see this film is because the story of the famous Boston Kingpin is so riveting.
