This movie has a good cast featuring good performances from Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Jack Nicholson. It also works as a thriller.

One of my favourite films. Mark Wahlberg is terrific. Lots of suspense and action. The two leads play off each other very well.

The Departed is a blockbuster film with some big names. Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Wahlberg all play big roles in this movie. The movie follows the lives of two men who each have connections with criminal activity in the Boston area. One of the men (DiCaprio) has a connection to the Boston mob because of his father and it is a past he is trying to escape. The other man (Damon) is an up and coming police officer who seems to have everyone’s respect, but soon gets involved with the Boston mob. The story revolves around informants and the perception of people. The Departed has great scenes with plenty of suspense and a storyline that flows nicely. Although the accents are sometimes hard to understand, the movie clearly explains everything that is going on. The superstar cast delivers a brilliant performance and gets you engaged into the movie. The Departed is a great movie and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for an entertaining story.

Cat and mouse cop drama. Griping and entertaining, but original Hong Kong version is better.

Interesting crime thriller involving a mob boss in South Boston and a joint task force of state troopers and the FBI trying to obtain evidence of criminal wrongdoing. The state troopers have a mole that works for and supplies information to the mob boss. A new recruit works for the task force and goes undercover to infiltrate the mob syndicate. Beyond that it's a cat and mouse game of lies, misinformation and deception. Plenty of violent action as well as plot twists and turns.

Frank Costello: I don't want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me. Years ago we had the church. That was only a way of saying - we had each other. The Knights of Columbus were real head-breakers; true guineas. They took over their piece of the city. Twenty years after an Irishman couldn't get a fucking job, we had the presidency. May he rest in peace. That's what the niggers don't realize. If I got one thing against the black chappies, it's this - no one gives it to you. You have to take it.

Frank Costello: When you decide to be something, you can be it. That's what they don't tell you in the church. When I was your age they would say we can become cops, or criminals. Today, what I'm saying to you is this: when you're facing a loaded gun, what's the difference?
