Not what I expected. More like a documentary than an action movie.

"Black Mass" is a crime thriller based on the true story of James "Whitney" Bulgler and his relationshiup with the FBI. The book is based on the book "Black Mass: The True Story of the alliance between the FBI and the Irish Mob," and out of this book, tells of the brtual violence with involve Bulger and the mob which is based in Boston. Johnny Depp, usually in weird light roles has come off role as brutual and scary. His role has him in total control the tone of the movie. Depp gave his best role in years. When I saw the movie, I* didn't expect the film to be as good as "goodfellas," but Johnny Depp's protrayal of Bulger could get an Oscar nomination.

An enticing crime thriller, centered around Depp's performance as "Whitey" Bulger, Black Mass is one of the better dramas of 2015. In my opinion, Depp was snubbed of a nomination for best actor in a leading role. This is one, if not the single best Depp performance in recent memory. While not much happens in the way of excitement in this film, it's still stays interesting through the performances, not only by Depp, but also from supporting stars like Benedict Cumberbatch, Corey Stoll, and Kevin Bacon.
