This was surprisingly good! I think the low rating is from the low brow audience expecting cheesy Chucky movie and getting a really good story with a twist.
Very good solid movie overall. Johnny Depp's performance was near perfect. It would be a 5 star movie with better writing and character development. When you compare this film to Goodfellas, you realize how great that movie was, and how Black Mass, as good as it is, doesn't come close. The difference is in the writing, direction, character development, and also the sheer amount of talented actors in Goodfellas. Don't go into this hoping for another Goodfellas and you won't be disappointed.
I knew when the white kid with the lisp started rapping (which occurred several more times to the audience discomfort), and by the shaky hand camera film style, this was going to be bad. I just didn't realize it would be THAT bad. Another story that bores you to death in order to build "suspense" for a predictable ending that leaves you feeling like you just got a diaper full of crap to the face. If a camera pointed at an empty room for 30 seconds followed by an old lady jumping up from below and screaming into that camera is your idea of scary and original, then this is for you.
