Note: The following text may contain spoilers

BLACK MASS is a drama thriller, based on real events, about a Boston crime boss whose shady deals with the authorities to bring down his rivals spirals out of control.

Violence

The strong violence is set in the context of brutal gangland rivalries and includes beatings, as well as execution-style shootings and stranglings. The violence is bloody, but the focus is on its cold efficiency rather than its detail or gory consequences.

Language

There is frequent strong language ('f**k', 'motherf**ker', 'c**ksucker') with mild and moderate bad language including uses of 'damn', 'Christ', 'piss', 'shit', 'ass', 'jerking me off', 'jerk off', 'retard', 'prick', 'faggot', 'dick' and 'whore'.

There is also brief sight of hard drug use and a crude reference to oral sex.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
