I was probably the only person who watched this movie that had no idea who Whitey Bulger was, or that this was based on a true story. But knowing more about the real story, Johnny Depp did a fantastic job, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from him. There were lots of famous actors in this movie as well as Johnny Depp like Benedict Cumberbatch, and Dakota Johnson, who was in the previous A Bigger Splash. This movie was well done, but pretty long. Also, I wanted more of an ending than the movie provided.
Grisham thought it was the typical mobster movie and nothing to set it apart from all the others.
Grisham – 5.5/10
Sam – 7/10
