Black Mass

2015, R,  Drama, True Story,

Joel Edgerton, Johnny Depp, Jesse Plemons, Will Arnett  & many others

 

This drama recounts the  story of Whitey Bulger a notorious Boston Gangster who, to get rid of his rivals turns mob informant  (talk about eliminating the competition) eluding authorities for over 15 years while facing imminent indictment and was finally arrested in 2011.

As far as the Boston accent(s) go (and I’m basing it on what I hear from Mark Wahlberg & family as well as Sully Erna of Godsmack)  the actors did a good job. Johnny Depp  is just horror movie freaky looking to me and when they were int he 1970’s man did Joel’s charater’s kitchen bring back memories of the apartment I spent the first quarter of my life in with the wallpaper.

It was pretty cool but for a ‘gangster/mob’ like movie…it wasn’t as violent as I thought it would be  Not that it has to be though, but going into watching something I normally wouldn’t  try to prepare myself for things I may not like or might offend most (its super hard to do that with me)

I think there’s a bit of it I was lost on not sure why but if that didn’t happen I might have given it a slightly higher score.
