A Martin Scorsese Picture.
Two men from opposite sides of the law are undercover within the massachusetts state police and the irish mafia, but violence and bloodshed boil when discoveries are made and the moles are dispatched to find out their enemy's identities.

"A ferociously entertaining film.  Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter
"A new American crime classic from the legendary Martin Scorsese...  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"...the most vibrant, exciting and invigorating movie-movie of the year.  Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"...a reminder of why we go to the movies in the first place.  Scott Tobias, The Onion A.V. Club
"...a fast-paced, visually slick, psychologically fascinating Boston-set cops-and-crooks saga.  William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Editor's Note
Director Martin Scorsese returns to his trademark style with the violent, bruised, and bloody feature THE DEPARTED. Scorsese filched the basic storyline from Wai Keung Lau and Siu Fai Mak's masterful 2002 Hong Kong action film, INFERNAL AFFAIRS, which saw a policeman going undercover as a mob member and a mob member infiltrating the police force. Scorsese transfers the action to Boston, positioning Leonardo Di Caprio as undercover cop William Costigan and Matt Damon as undercover mobster Colin Sullivan. While Costigan and Sullivan get into plenty of nail-biting situations that almost reveal their true identities, Scorsese gradually unravels his strong supporting cast, including Jack Nicholson as Sullivan's mob boss, Frank Costello; Ray Winstone as Costello's meat-headed muscle; Mark Wahlberg as a hot-headed police sergeant; and Vera Farmiga as a love interest for both Damon and DiCaprio's characters.

THE DEPARTED finds Scorsese generously dipping his toes back into waters that will be warmly familiar to his biggest fans. Rolling Stones songs pepper the soundtrack, recalling the remarkable "Jumpin' Jack Flash" sequence in MEAN STREETS; bullets and blood punctuate every key scene, bringing TAXI DRIVER's explosive finale to mind; and the mobster-themed storyline is a thrilling return to GOODFELLAS territory. Nicholson and Winstone provide acting master-classes every time they appear, neatly complementing the blossoming talents of DiCaprio, Damon, and Wahlberg, while further veteran support comes in small roles for Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin. Scorsese is often criticized for affording precious little screen time to female characters, and THE DEPARTED won't quell those dissenting voices, although Farmiga's character proves to be more than a match for DiCaprio and Damon's posturings. But Scorsese followers who balked at his diversions into documentary filmmaking (NO DIRECTION HOME) and period epics (THE AVIATOR) will be delighted to find raw male machismo puncturing the screen once again in this frenetic entry into his celebrated oeuvre.

Expert Review The Departed - DVD
By: David Thomas filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 2/5/2007 8:27 PM
Just as Spike Lee took a basic caper and added his own pet issues to elevate Inside Man to the upper echelons of its genre, Martin Scorsese has taken The Departed, based on an intriguingly simple premise, to its own heights by infusing issues that have concerned him ever since Mean Streets. Along the way, he makes room for some memorable performances, not the least of which comes from the most likely of sources. The Departed is based on the Hong Kong blockbuster Infernal Affairs, in which a cop goes undercover in the mob while the mob places one of their own as a mole in the police force....read the full review
Expert Review The Departed (Two-Disc Special Edition) - DVD
By: Edward Perkis Cinema Blend DVD Reviews
Published on: 2/17/2007 6:55 PM
The cat and mouse game played by the two leads under the eye of Nicholson and using cell phones as a key plot point is masterful and in Scorsese's assured hands, scenes pop off the screen with tension. He also uses classic rock songs in his trademark manner, impressively setting time, place, or mood. However, his use of "I'm Shipping Up To Boston" a ferocious song by the celtic punk band The Dropkick Murphys during the title card sequence (following an 18 minute prologue) really kicks the movie into high gear and is a brilliant choice. ...read the full review

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"THE DEPARTED is splattered with moments of pure, dead-eyed, blood-soaked Scorsesean violence....Nicholson provides a menace that's half silky, half seedy." -- Grade: A- 10/13/2006 p.108

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "DiCaprio fully justifies his place as Marty's new muse....[He delivers] THE DEPARTED's most dangerous turn." 11/01/2006 34

New York Times

ReelViews 10 of 10
The Departed is a perfect example of why remakes shouldn't be dismissed out of hand. Director Martin Scorsese and screenwriter William Monahan have taken the B-grade Hong Kong crime flick Infernal Affairs and re-imagined it as an American epic tragedy. The original film was gritty and entertaining; the new version is a masterpiece - the best effort Scorsese has brought to the screen since Goodfellas (ending a decade-long drought of disappointments and near-misses). In making The Departed, Scorsese has retained the essential plot structure of Infernal Affairs but has transformed the movie into something truly his own...The Departed is as suspenseful as anything the director has previously achieved. This movie deserves mention alongside Scorsese's most celebrated movies: Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and The Age of Innocence. - James Berardinelli

Variety 9 of 10
Mixing it up with modern mobsters for the first time since "Casino" 11 years ago, Martin Scorsese cooks up a juicy and bloody steak of a movie in "The Departed." Different from the director's earlier crime dramas in its shared focus on cops rather than on just the goodfellas, this reworking of a popular Hong Kong picture pulses with energy, tangy dialogue and crackling performances from a fine cast...For those who want reassurance Scorsese is re-embracing the "GoodFellas" aesthetic, it's there right at the outset. With the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" setting the mood, an imposing man addresses a nice Irish kid at a working class soda fountain and presses money into the kid's hand, enticing the boy into his circle...DiCaprio is outstanding as the audience's main point of emotional contact...In his third collaboration with Scorsese, DiCaprio has rarely been this vital, energized or passionate. - Todd McCarthy
