As cold and uninviting as its subject, Black Mass is a competently made and star-studded look at the true life and crimes of legendary Boston mobster, James "Whitey" Bulger. The admittedly chilling source material somehow never manages to deliver any chills.

We all knew they would return somehow but after a long wait Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch are finally back to together to stop evil doers and solve mysteries in ....opps, my mistake. Its Smaug not Sherlock.
