Product Description

Synopsis:  Rookie cop Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) grew up in crime. That makes him the perfect mole, the man on the inside of the mob run by boss Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson). It's his job to win Costello's trust and help his detective handlers (Mark Wahlberg and Martin Sheen) bring Costello down. Meanwhile, SIU officer Colin Sullivan (Matt Damon) has everyone's trust. No one suspects he's Costello's mole. How these covert lives cross, double-cross and collide is at the ferocious core of the widely acclaimed The Departed. Martin Scorsese directs, guiding a cast for the ages in a visceral tale of crime and consequences. This is searing, can't-look-away filmmaking: like staring into the eyes of a con - or

Scorse Scores again! This one is a collector item. As a gangster film it stands with Goodfellas and as a political police film it stands with LA Confidential. DiCaprio and Matt Damon are well cast as cops because they manage to look like relations, one a good cop playing a bad cop, the other a bad cop playing a good cop or are they both? Add Jack Nicholson who clearly plays the role of a 'godfather' type gang lord also has a twist at the end that will leave the viewer thinking. This is not just a thrill ride. It's not quite as good as The Godfather but it's close.

Whether intentional or accidental this movie also speaks to the confused American political situation. Who is the good guy? The characters are multi-dementional and the motivations of each character and the relationships of the gang members and the cops are intricate and require consideration. This one is 'a thinker' as well as excellent entertainment. It deserved best picture. I've seen Babel, too, and I'd vote for The Departed. I bought it.

Format: Blu-ray
This violent and absorbing movie was a return to form for Martin Scorcese with all actors more than holding their own. A remake of "Infernal Affairs" it centres around two police officers undercover on different sides of the street. One (Leonardo Di Caprio) is infiltrating the camp of sociopathic criminal, Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson). The other (Matt Damon) works for Costello and has infiltrated the police. They know each other exist but not who each other are. As they grow closer to discovering each others identities the stakes rise along with the body count. Set in a dark and moody Boston all the players have accents that could be cut with a knife. There are deeper themes to do with loyalty, family history and the extent to which we can change who we essentially are but this is a sharply defined showdown between good and evil. Well worth a look or a repeat visit.

The Departed (2006)
Crime, Drama, 151 minutes
Directed by Martin Scorsese
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson

I have heard a lot of criticism for The Departed because it's based on the Hong Kong film, Infernal Affairs (2002). While I'm usually against remakes of any kind, there are a few that were worth the effort. Another criticism is that Scorsese won the Oscar for Best Director for this instead of several superior films. I understand that argument, but it shouldn't be a reason to downgrade the film. I must admit I haven't seen Infernal Affairs, and there are still a few Scorsese films that I haven't got around to, but I am certain that The Departed is my favorite from the many I have seen.

The Departed works for me because of Scorsese and the incredible cast. DiCaprio and Damon are both superb in their roles and both are among my favorite modern actors. Jack Nicholson dominates the screen as Frank Costello and Ray Winstone is perfect as his main sidekick. This is also the first film in which I noticed Vera Farmiga. The supporting cast includes Alec Baldwin, Mark Wahlberg and Martin Sheen. What's not to like?

The movie has a complicated plot and it's a pleasure to see it unfold. There isn't much action, but the few scenes that do contain action are violent and shocking. The movie is enhanced by the dialogue which partly explains why it is 50 minutes longer than Infernal Affairs. The characters have considerable depth and I always come away from the movie feeling that I know them.

The Departed won Oscars for Best Director, Film Editing, Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture. Although it didn't win any acting awards, there wasn't a bad performance from any of the cast. Writing this now, I realize that I need to see the movie again soon. It's definitely one of my favorites and easily in my Top 20.

By Stella Carrier TOP 500 REVIEWER on Dec 18 2014
Format: DVD
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.
