In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James "Whitey" Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: How much longer must we subscribe, as moviegoers, to the sentimental brotherhood of violence?
Fresh: Violent, uncompromising and superbly executed, this is visceral filmmaking of the highest order.
Fresh: Compelling and powerfully acted, with just enough wrinkles to avoid the ghosts of gangster movies past.
Fresh: A grim, sturdy crime tract that owes everything to Depp's immersive portrayal, even as it slowly peters out.
Seen a special screening for this and it was amazing! Depp was spot on. His best film since Blow!
Not only is Johnny Depp Oscar worthy, but also the entire movie is one epic crime film!! Without a doubt, I believe this film is PURE GOLD!!! :)
Great movie, feels so close to the crime.
