They would remember him for his roles as a leading ladies man or tough guy roles from his earlier films not an aging crook down on his luck who struggles to support his family. Having said all that what makes this a good movie? What many people would not know is that the South end of Boston was notorious at this time for organized crime.
In addition a large part of the city police dept as well as state law enforcement was riddled with police corruption. To make things even worse the local Boston office of the FBI was allegedly involved, the local media were intimidated and did not report what was going on and the political establishment also turned a blind eye too!
This movie portrays this quite well and the fact that the movies conclusion is located at Bostons government center is in itself ironic if not significant. In fact despite this some now believe that Bulger himself might have been an FBI informer too i. Yes the movie does move slowly, but it is more than compensated with a pretty reasonable story and a fine list of American character actors who are very believable in their roles.
There is also a shot of the old Boston Garden featuring an ice hockey match with the Boston Bruins in their heyday led by the legendary Bobby Orr. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote.
