Scorsese, like Tarantino, has spent his whole life making one-dimensional gratuitously violent unsympathetic meaningless rubbish like this. I was uncertain in the end whether or not to log this as a comedy! Just about everyone dies : just as they all deserve.

I found this movie very exciting until near the finish where I felt it just lacked something. It was anti-climatic. It was such a good story that perhaps I expected too much at the end. Regardless, it has big actors, lots of action, and is worth a look.

Martin Scorsese's best film since "Goodfellas."

Already considered a modern-day classic, this Scorsese movie is one of his best, featuring great performances from everyone involved and a twisty-turny screenplay that's vastly entertaining, all backed up with his unique style

This is a better version then the Chinese one. Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio is absolutely the beast of this film. Jack Nicholson should be in a comedy because he is good but he isn't as bad as Matt Damon. I hate dirty cops. This reminds me of Training Day when Denzel Washington plays the villain dirty cop. A must see film

A little slow at the beginning, but everything else makes this a very unique and fantastic experience. Top notch acting, and almost exceptional plot progression.

When it comes to a Martin Scorsese film, it is not a surprise for me to be highly expected for what he can do with his filmmaking skills. However, I was not ready for the superior acting delivered by Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Mark Wahlberg.

The cast does an outstanding job and drives the movie with funny, often profane and very witty dialogues. Even though the ending felt a little rushed and somewhat unjustified, the movie was absorbing and super entertaining.

Great crime film (would've been next level had it not been for a couple flaws), featuring next level work from Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson

Really engaging film! Only wish that Vera's character had more of a purpose than just being a one dimensional love interest between Damon and Dicaprio.

For me, the ending almost ruins the movie. DiCaprio is great in it.

Unbelievable cast! Painfully slow at times.

Finally got to check this movie off my To See list - well worth the wait.

One of the great gangster films of all time - Scorsese really nailed it with this film and it was worthy of the Oscars it one. Great cast and another brilliant acting performance by Jack Nicholson.

It may cause too much weight on viewer that none of the characters knows what's going on.

Funny that this should be so highly reveiwed. It's a pretty mediocre film with highly incosistent parts and mainly one dimensional characters. Scorsese is generally rather overrated. Goodfellas was excellent, other than that his films have by and large been meh...

Love this movie! This is pure entertainment. A masterpiece?, maybe not... But you will love it. This is a movie one must watch before he or she dies.

63% - The Departed is a regular gangster film that consists of usual themes in the genre. But due to the strong performances of a great cast, the film remains to be quite watchable.

10 out of 10:

A gripping and powerfully acted mobster film that finally warranted Scorsese's Oscar.

You know I really liked this movie when I first watched it until I found out the truth! Scorsese stole this plot from a Hong Kong movie created in 2002 called Infernal Affairs! Even down to the scene involving the writing on the envelope! Talk about f_cking plagiarism!
