infernal affairs was a pretty good movie with an interesting and almost fresh kind of story and was very well played out on screen thanks to the two leading actors andy lau and tony leung. so when i saw the trailer to the departed i recognized a particular scene which was when leo's cast got torn off and when jack hit his already pained arm with his shoe and thought of infernal affairs. and i was a little nervous it being a remake or something but its partly a remake sort of but with a story all its own and just using references from infernal affairs. And i have to say this is one of the fewer good remakes to an original movie that i equally enjoyed. I'm not saying that because everyone saw it and it became an overrated thing, i watched it with an open mind and it was good and not because of what everyone thinks, and that's the problem with movies when they became overrated and you think everyone likes it and not really seen the movie. I have and i liked it. Basically you have two guys who are pretending to be someone their not on the opposites of the law. What i liked about this is that everyone and i mean the whole cast had a role and they portrayed their characters well especially leo dicaprio, matt damon, mark wahlberg and of course jack nicholson. And when it came to the ending if you seen infernal affairs then you probably know what's gonna happen but then you get a BIG surprise and i liked how the director sorta did something different and it payed off. So before you see this you should check out the equally good original infernal affairs then the departed to get an understanding on the story. I conclude saying the departed was one hell of a movie experience and i just wish more movies were like this that entertain you and not just try too hard to impress you.

At first I didn't know what to expect just because it was an oscar winner didn't necessary mean it would be good or appeal to my tastes - well it was excellent and what an ending, this has it all the love interest, backstabbing, murder, lies, everybody playing everybody - I don't think there has been a crime film this good since HEAT, can't wait for the sequel.

I decided to take a chance on purchasing the departed movie dvd from my Walmart job around three to four weeks ago because it was only five dollars and featured the images of these actors known for their acting talent; Leonardo dicaprio, jack Nicholson, matt damon, and mark Wahlberg. Jack Nicholson plays a mobster character of frank costello who is shown quoting I don’t want to be a product of my environment, I want my environment to be a product of me. Matt damon is shown being one the character of colin sullivan who has known the mobster characer since he was a child. This is because nicholson’s mobster character is shown in a moment of having a heart through buying groceries for the chlld, the movie illustrates the uncomfortable but harsh reality on how poverty even within the united states can be a dangerous breeding ground for more crime if the children of those environments do not have enough positive role models in their life. Leonaordo dicaprio’s character of billy costigan becomes a future coworker of both Collin Sullivan (matt damon) and sean digman (mark Wahlberg) within the boston police departments in order to get the mobster frank Costello (jack Nicholson) arrested. The movie trailers for the departed dvd are the painted veil starring Naomi waits and Edward Norton, the reaping starring Hilary swank, 300 starring Gerald butler, and blood diamond starring Leonardo dicaprio, Jennifer Connelly, and djimon hounson. The departed is also great for those who enjoy watching movies by Leonardo dicaprio, jack niecholson, matt damon, and mark Wahlberg because their character portrayals factor significantly in the film.

This was an ASTONISHING movie with a fantastic plot, great script, directing like no other, and the best cast I've ever seen. The first time I watched this film, it was hard to get through the great story with the constant f words. Mark Wahlberg and Jack Nicholson dished it out in every single sentence at least once. Otherwise, this was completely worthy of the 2006 Best Picture Award. I would definitly watch it again if it didn't have all the cussing. I don't mind the swearing as long as it's in moderation, but this was completely overkill. I've never seen this much cussing in my life, and I've seen hundreds of movies. Watching this with my family, was awkward because we wanted to keep watching because of the amazing plot, but wanted to turn it off because of the language. Overall, a fantastic movie anyone shouls watch

The Departed showcases why Leonardo DiCaprio is deserving of his elusive Academy Award. The character portrayal of an undercover cop on the run is perfectly enacted to make the viewer feel moved. The rest of the star studded cast also puts forth notable performances, notably Alec Baldwin and Mark Wahlberg. The movie builds at a good pace, leading to a dramatic finish. A classic dramatic thriller you can enjoy more than once!

Scorsese has done it again. It was fitting that he won the Academy Award for best director, having been nominated multiple times and never won. Based around the Boston mafia, Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson) relays a terrific sense of power as a well known criminal. Surrounding Costello are the two moles seeking each other out. The question is, who will get found out first? For those that like Scorsese's DeNiro movies or for those that just like a good action movie, The Departed is a movie everyone can enjoy.

this movie is an exact replica of the 1995 chinese movie 'internal affairs'. How can a director take credit for a movie when the only changes he made are the actors and that it's english speaking.

The only film by Scorcese that I ever liked. Tense, suspenseful, engrossing. The last 20 minutes is over the top and illogical, but still riveting. Great performances, especially Wahlberg. Matt Damon is the usual weakest-link. How, how, how does he continue to get work? A sock-puppet would have been a better casting choice.

What can one say? Put Scorcese, Nicholson, DeCaprio, Damon, and Wallburg together and you get GOLD--and well deserved, if I may say so!! By FAR the best movie of 2006 and while not quite "Taxi Driver," or "Raging Bull," very deserving for Scorcese's at-long-last Oscar!! Nicholson still has the punch and the younger cast members are maturing nicely into the De Niros of the future!! DON'T MISS THIS ONE!!

I have no real reason to even think I can review The Departed since I REFUSED to watch an American remake of an amazing Hong Kong film Trilogy. I just put a rating since I couldn't comment otherwise. My single issue is why couldn't American studios just relase Infernal Affairs in theaters with the orignal actors (Andy Lau, Tony Leung, Anthony Wong, Eric Tsang, Shawn Yue, and Edison Chen) since there is already a dubbed version released on DVD in the US? But whatever. As for a huge Infernal Affairs fan here, I'd say sure, watch The Departed, since it's a remake of an incredible film series but I just ask that the original is given a chance and subtitles aren't the only reason it goes ignored and underappreciated because of it's American remake. The first one has been dubbed, so... check it out.

I'm sorry, but I AM a fan of the director. It's just that this movie doesn't do anything for me. I kept wondering when it was gonna get good all the way into the first hour and a half, and then I just turned it off. The acting was great, top notch performances all around. That's about all the good I can say about it.

The South Boston that has been the study of so many is the great inspiration in this story and with great flair from the usual New Yorker Martin Scorcese. In what has to be his most complex, multilayered story by far, it is fascinating to note the character of Jack Nicholson, who plays the almost Whitey Bulger-like villain in this with quite zeal and enthusiasm it seems. It is shows injustice in the modern world unchecked and we do know that is a relevant issue for all ages, where the rules of good and evil are inverted in the huge cauldron known as America.

This movie was absolutely amazing. The acting was top notch and the actors really kept you at the edge of your seat the whole time. The intensity of the movie held the audiences attention until the very end. Very thought provoking and intersting. A must-see.

Gritty insider take on internal affairs, police officers, and the mob in one of the country's most elite state police agencies. Characters are well-rounded, and just when it seems everything is settled and figured out, there is still another twist or two.
