Depp is convincing as the role-playing agent who loses track of his real identity.

Pacino and Depp are a match made in acting heaven, riffing off each other with astonishing subtlety and wit.

Powerful, driving, incisive and fascinating, Donnie Brasco paints a convincing portrait of a man's life undercover.

Though the outline of what the film has tried to do is visible, so little feels at stake emotionally that anyone intending to care about these characters would be well advised, for want of a better phrase, to simply fhuggedaboudit.

I don't know if I can emphasize enough how much I enjoyed the fine performances of Depp and Pacino.

A tight, character-driven drama--a rarity in today's Hollywood, it's not to be missed.

Two powerful performances and a glimpse at the inner workings of the lower levels of the mob make this a must see.

May be the best mob movie in years that was made by somebody whose name is not Scorsese or Coppola.

One fine little character study about crime, friendship and loyalty in gangland New York City.

Tarnishes the shiny veneer of the mob we've seen in earlier movies, holding up its players not as criminal heroes but as cogs in a criminal machine, more worthy of compassion than cheers.

[Pacino's] turn as a low-level mobster is his most relaxed and charming work in years.

The movie has many human qualities and contains what will be remembered as one of Pacino's finest scenes.

For all its treacheries, twists and turns, nothing really comes as a surprise.

It's a good story and an interesting take on trust and friendship, but Donnie Brasco only works for the first hour.

Pacino's performance is great and the story seems to have an interesting take on human nature, but the bland, mechanical direction make it not quite worthy of a full recommendation.

Takes us into a world that the movies frequently open to us, but somehow this trip seems more real and less glamorized than most.
