    Decent, they never explained why the guy could shoot his close associates w/o the others deciding to just blast him and take over. All power resides in something besides real loyalty in that world.

    They also seemed to way underplay the active role the FBI agent played in crimes. He's not doing 40 years for "letting things slide"

    Bulger had the muscle and the connection for dope which is why he was able to do what he did.


    My only issues with the movie were the scene which was a total ripoff of the "Am I a clown" scene in Goodfellas and there was almost nothing about when he was in hiding

    It was OK. But I felt what could've been a gold mine ended up being a pile of copper. The Departed told the story better

    I liked this flick, Depp gave a great performance IMO. If you haven't seen it, check out the Whitey Bulger documentary on Netflix it's tremendous!

    I liked it, but I compared it to the Departed, which it was not even close...
