The Departed


The Departed carries a stellar cast including Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin, and Mark Wahlberg. The Departed is a remake of a Chinese movie named, Internal Affair. But this version has a Scorsese touch, a dialog driven-type of movie.

Billy Costigan, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, is a undercover cop that infiltrates into Frank Costello’s (Nicholson) mob. On the opposite side of the law, Collin Sullivan , played by Matt Damon, is one of Costello’s men who became a State Cop to keep tabs on law enforement activities who are out to catch Costello.

Bloodshed ensues as they try to find the identity of the mole. The drama is tense and the body count rises as they desperately try to find more clues of the other’s identity.

I rate this movie:

Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆
