  1. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Black Mass

    A fine, if formless, Mann-lite movie soiled by the bizzare decision to make Bulger look like a Lizard-person. Having seen 'Whitey' degrades it another star, since you know there is a far more interesting, and less generic ganster, story going on here.

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Black Mass

    Depp is menacingly engaging despite a weak script that makes not just his character, but nearly every other element in the film a rough outline, due to its lack of unique character detail that renders it obtuse in its observation, lacking creative specificity. Copper's direction is also bland, failing to rouse or emotionally move, with his sense of timing, tone, and pace feeling murky. A hollow film.

  3. Philippe P. Marchetti's rating of the film Black Mass

    Kind of a letdown. Not that the movie is bad, but Cooper two first film were way better in my opinion. Still a good movie. Just had a bit too much expectation & not a fan of what Depp did in this movie.

  6. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film Black Mass

    A stellar showcase of Depp's talent

  7. Mark Tallo's rating of the film Black Mass

    A mobster movie. Not the best mobster Johnny Depp has been in.

  8. Francisco Mouraz's rating of the film Black Mass

  9. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Black Mass

    Depp gives a magnetic performance as Whitey Bulger in this biopic; and his performance alone was the difference between this being a good movie and just another middle-of-the-road crime flick, simply because everything else seemed suppressed compared to what he delivered. He carried this film with one of his most admirable performances since 1998.

  10. Waxamillion's rating of the film Black Mass

    With such an amazing cast, how was this so... flat.

  11. Joao Francisco Pinho's rating of the film Black Mass

  12. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Black Mass

    So dull. Cooper thinks he has made a gangster classic but the film is woefully generic. Gangster pictures are usually filled with horrible people but this film is also a charisma vacuum. Depp is good but the performance is one note and the less said about Cumberbatch's accent the better. I was bored an hour in....

  13. pintobean's rating of the film Black Mass

    Great action! Johnny Depp's still got it.

  14. Mariana Basílio's rating of the film Black Mass

  15. Christopher Morgan's rating of the film Black Mass

    A weak story paired with a muddy progression. Almost never knew what was happening but always expected someone to be killed for being a rat. Depp was boring. Watch a Scorsese movie.

  16. auloel's rating of the film Black Mass

    I know this kinda The Departed deja vu. But Johnny Depp and Joel-asshole-Edgerton convince me to give 4 stars.

  17. Marisa Loureiro's rating of the film Black Mass

  18. xrystyna's rating of the film Black Mass

  19. HKFanatic's rating of the film Black Mass

    Not nearly as dreadful as one would expect based on all those reviews, but stretched to 122 minutes it can grow surprisingly dull for a movie about a trigger-happy psychopath tearing up South Boston in the Eighties. The good news is, it's anchored by a stellar cast, with Joel Edgerton and Peter Sarsgaard impressing the most. As for Depp, the irony is he plays it more like a vampire here than he did in "Dark Shadows."

  20. CinemaDead's rating of the film Black Mass

    Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton save this from being a totally forgettable gangster biopic.

  21. DenoResandono's rating of the film Black Mass

    There's one thing that i like: Johnny Depp's performance.

  22. James Mackin's rating of the film Black Mass

  23. runfromfire's rating of the film Black Mass

    Sometimes I forget that Johnny Depp used to be an actor and then this sort of flick comes along. He might've been the biggest revelation here but the whole cast was pretty great. Cumberbatch was kinda underused and his accent was wonky but hey, at least Meth Damon got a fair amount of screentime.
