You don’t ever mess with Whitey Bulger, you just don’t.
“Black Mass” focuses on a Boston gangster, Whitey Bulger, who’s labelled as the most feared, most wanted, most notorious gangster in the history of America. Following a string of his brutal and vicious past, he later becomes an FBI informant as a way to get rid of their common enemy: the Italian mob.
The trailer kicks off with Whitey (played by Johnny Depp) giving advise to his 6-year-old son over the dining table. He’s heard saying:
“It not what you do, it’s when and where you do it, and who you do it to or with.” “If nobody sees it, it didn’t happen”.
