Rude, profane, clever, hilarious, engrossing, crowd-pleasing, ridiculously entertaining.

As cop thrillers go, this is the best in quite a while.

I think GoodFellas leaves this for dead, absolutely for dead.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

[The Departed] showcases Scorsese's trademark themes of sin, betrayal and redemption. It's a carefully calibrated and detailed film that takes its time establishing the characters' complex histories.

The Departed is not for the faint of heart. But scaredy-cats are going to miss a tremendously satisfying film, one that will have you leaving the theater saying, "Now, that was a movie."

This is Scorsese's Serpico, his French Connection, his Heat, and he brings the same eye for anthropological detail to the boys in blue as he does to his beloved wiseguys.

[A] very entertaining, densely layered, just-short-of-fabulous melodrama.

Urban film making at its best, The Departed is a brutally violent, beautifully crafted, and incredibly well acted piece of film making that will leave you reeling.

Film and Felt

The film is superbly shot, and the rapid-fire editing and shaky camera fit the constant flux that the main characters find themselves in time and again.

You must understand farce before you can understand tragedy, and Scorsese understands both

Scorsese isn't about plots; he's about people, places, and times, and until he departs from that, this film is a return to genius.

Great acting aside, this film's greatest accomplishment comes from its director, whose style is remarkable and whose vision is always innovative.

The Departed heralds Martin Scorsese's return to the top of his game and simultaneously secures for the film a place in the pantheon of the very best of American crime cinema. Welcome back to Scorsese's mean streets.

Neil Smith

The story rattles along at such a lick there's little time to ponder the plot holes -- no mean feat in a film of this length and with so many fine actors competing for our attention.
