Story: The film tells the true story of the notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger (Depp), who held sway over his territory with brutal efficiency. He is the brother of Senator Billy Bulger (Cumberbatch), who is pretty much the exact opposite of Whitey in terms of temperament. At his FBI friend John Connolly's (Edgerton) urging, Whitey becomes an informant and helps the FBI nab various mobsters who also happen to be Whitey's rivals. In exchange, John covers up for Whitey, protecting him from the law, while turning a blind eye toward the latter's criminal activities.

Review: Connolly and Bulger hail from Southie, a part of Boston where everyone knows each other and bonds run deep. He cares about Bulger and convinces him to slip the feds valuable information that can help make the town almost crime-free.

Connolly plays a key part in that he manages the uneasy link involving the secret deal between Bulger and the FBI. The deal is double-edged as Connolly knows that they are indirectly making Bulger more powerful and in a way, doing his dirty work for him by eliminating his rivals, legally of course.

Connolly keeps placating his boss McGuire (Bacon), who grudgingly accepts this slightly dubious witness protection arrangement. Bulger can do whatever he likes, but there is an extent to which Connolly can protect him. Easier said than done though, for Bulger gets progressively bolder with his activities as his rivals are taken off the streets.

In his career thus far, Johnny Depp has essayed a wide variety of characters ranging from the sublime to the bizarre, with consummate ease. However, as Whitey Bulger, he is in a word, mesmerizing. The level of immersion he has achieved in playing Bulger (aided in a big way by painstakingly-created facial prosthetics) is near-flawless. You'll forget that it is Depp who is onscreen. And Edgerton (recently seen in The Gift that he starred in, wrote and directed) just seems to get better with every consecutive movie role. Watch it for Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton's masterful performances.
