This movie was an excellent Crime thriller. and it had a perfect cast of famous actors.
one of the best Crime drama, well to date anyway.
i really liked this movie. 4 stars. it was a really good stroyline, realistic violence, and all of the characters had good boston accents
an outstanding film, 4 stars!
A 3! Whats your freaking problem!?
Wildly overrated. Worse than "Infernal Affairs" which I didn't like very much. The Boston accents are ridiculously bad, even Damon's.
i snuck in to this film and enjoyed the film from the begining line
This is a movie that cannot help but be good. The cast is amazing. Complementing the cast above The Departed also has Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, and Alec Baldwin. The dialogue is believable, funny, and the best I heard in a long time. There is a banter that works insatiably well between the cops and the "gangsters". This humor makes us come to an understanding about where each of these characters is coming from. Hence creating a world this is real to us and not one of movie cops and robbers.
Scorsese has crafted a film that will probably (and finally) win him the best director Academy Award. This movie is more accessible to the general public then his last few films. The Aviator (2004) is a great film but a period piece much like the Gangs of New York (2002) that had a core audience and get critical acclaim but are not loved by the m***es. The Departed is such a film. Here is why: when I saw this film the audience was thoroughly invested in these characters. Scorsese gave us so much to draw upon with these characters in the first hour of the movie. DiCaprio is someone who wants to do the right thing. Damon has an unquestionable loyalty. Nicholson simply is what he is and pretends to be nothing else. All of these traits are things we want to be or emulate or have in our lives. So we see pieces of ourselves up on screen or people who have traits we would like to have. What did people have in common with Howard Hughes in The Aviator? Not many of us know what it is like to be second generation immigrant fighting with right off the boat immigrants like in Gangs of New York. In short The Departed Scorsese's characters are more like regular everyday people making his latest film accessible to the greater m***es.
