Black Mass is one hell of a performance

5 second plot: This is the real life story of the rise and fall of Whitey Bulger. Boston's notorious friendly neighbor by day and lunatic crime lord by night. In the '80s he became a big player thanks to a deal he made with the FBI.

5 second review: What an amazing cast and what a brilliant performance by Johnny Depp. He translates this psychotic unpredictability so well to the screen, you truly never know what's going to happen, but you're always expecting the worst. It's a shame the story just focuses on the cool lunatic gangster stuff and doesn't try to dig deeper.

IMDb score: 7,9/10
