/ Rise Up / Entertainment / Black Mass – At The Movies with Conrad

 

Our weekly film reviewer Conrad Browne is back with his take on Black Mass starring Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch & Dakota Johnson.

Johnny Depp went through a huge physical transformation for the film (contact lenses to give him startling blue eyes, partially shaved head, fake teeth, etc), really puts him into character and gives him a lot to work with in terms of physical presence and the strong Boston accent. Joel Edgerton has no trace of an Aussie accent as he plays the ultimate anti-hero who works for the FBI but is more loyal to his friends, family and community and lets that effect his judgement with devastating results. Dakota Johnson is out of her depth and seems too young to play the part of Whitey’s partner and mother to his child.

Listen to the podcast to hear Conrad’s thoughts and rating.
