The Departed brings the Irish Mob back on the big screen in this latest film by Martin Scorsese. This is the story of 2 Police Officers, one who is a mole for the cops in the Irish Mob and the other is a mole in the police department for the mob. Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson) is the head of the Irish Mob Family who raises a boy like his own son, and sends him to the police academy to become a cop. Officer Collin Sullivan (Matt Damon) helps out his adopted father by passing on police information to him. Officer Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) infiltrates Costello's crew and passes on information to his superiors (Mark Wahlberg and Martin Sheen). This is called Martin Scorsese's best film since Goodfellas, but I would have to say that Goodfellas was better. There is alot of good action, and there is a good twist at the end. Overall it is a real good film. Definitely one to see for any gangster movie fan. Get the Full Screen Edition DVD on eBay today and check it out for yourself !!
To take down South Boston's Irish Mafia, the police send in one of
their own to infiltrate the underworld, not realizing the syndicate
has done likewise in this Oscar winning crime thriller. While an
undercover cop (Leonardo CiCaprio) curries favor with the mob kingpin
(Jack Nicholson), a career criminal (Matt Damon) rises through the
police ranks. Both sides soon discover there is a mole among them-
but can not identify them. Plenty of action, guns and casulties
here as you soon learn 'The Departed' are the people that lose their
lives with the fighting between the two sides. Director Martin
Scorsese has done many hit movies (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The
Aviator, Kundun, etc) and this is certainly one of the top ones
that will be added to the list. Great movie for a nights entertainment
especially if you enjoy crime thrillers, drama or action movies. Movie
was awarded Oscars for BEST PICTURE and BEST DIRECTOR in 2006.
This was a brilliant tale of good cop, bad cop. With twists at every turn. I usually don't like the action packed suspense movies and watch only to keep the husband company but I was at the edge of my seat the entire time.
Undercover Boston State Trooper Costagan (DiCaprio)was the black sheep of the department. Kicked out of the Academy his only chance at being a real cop was to take an assignment going on the "inside" with the mob in Boston. He accepts and goes on a long whirlwind journey with mob leader Costillo, played by Jack Nicholson. Known for some amazing performances this one was no exception for Nicholson.
The real Villian in a bizzare twist was not played by Nicholson but rather by Matt Damon. He played the Boston State Trooper assigned to investigate Costillo and bring him down. Unfortunately, Damon was involved and working for Costillo, informing the mobster of the departments every move.
In the mix was none other than a woman. Go figure. lol Both cops managed to be sleeping with the department psychiatrist. She never knows who to believe but is not aware that the two cops are on the same case until the end.
Costigan (DiCaprio) was in increasing danger as the rat continued to leak information. The department was torn as the right hand never knew what the left was up to. The FBI had their fingers in the pot and boy Oh boy what a mess it turned out to be in the end!!! I won't tell you have got to see for yourself!
Supporting actors and actresses were also great adding all the right fillers and details to keep you guessing. Casting was brilliant.

Imho this film kinda drags it out too long before getting down to the nitty gritty..Film opens with two Police Officers..both having two very different reasons for joining the force..one a good Cop trying to prove his worth as a Police Officer....the second Cop falls under bad Cop..each working against the other without realizing it until it's too late..Jack Nicholson does a fantastic job playing a low life scum bag criminal..one of his best performances ever..Leonardo DeCaprio has definitely changed alot both in his look and his acting he has come a long way from his "Titanic" days..Mark Wahlberg starts out playing a not very likeable character in the beginning, but all of that changes by the end of the film..usually I dislike Martin Sheen in films, but his character was very likeable sort of a fatherly type..this film is filled with blood and guts and the langauage would make a Sailor blush..definitely not a movie for the under 18 crowd..movie buffs will enjoy this flick for the pure action, tense scenes and yes there is a bit of a love story in it as well, the ending alone makes this movie worth the long ride..This film is definitely a catalyst for all other action movies to pattern themselves after..4 out of 5 stars, but only because it took soo long to get to the heart of this fun thrill ride of a movie!!
This movie has an amazing cast and a great script. This will keep the thrill in you from begining to end. With star actor performances, this DVD is a great addition to your collection. This movie has explcit language, gore and some nudity. This movie won 4 Oscars, and won 47 other awards. Three of the main characters participate in lies, betrayal and sacrifice to only identify eachothers identity towards the end. All are in a battle within the Mafia and Irish Mob. This is a must see movie!
A performance from actor Leonardo Di Caprio, Matt Daemon and Jack Nicholson. Three fascinating actors put together a story of bordello and violence. With an ending so faboulous, it's been awarded one of the best and mysterious endings ever. Martin Scorsese puts all of this movie to life with fantastic directing and a good pick of great actors for his set.
** This is a MUST SEE movie, and a MUST KEEP movie...
