    Default The Departed

    Thought it was an o.k. movie, started out good but then it dragged on and lost steam. Way too many plot turns and stuff. Lots of gratuitious violence, I love violence and blood and guts as much as anyone else, but sometimes you sit there and go, oooookaaaaaayyyy. Jack was awesome as usual though, twisted role. Source material was a hong kong movie called internal affairs, never saw that one.

    Another remake! Hollywood people are lacking creativity, no?

    The original, Internal Affairs, is very good!! I dont know if I want it to be ruined by watching the American version.

    I do love it when I hiss at movie trailers on the TV and then get forced into seeing it with a friend and end up loving it more than any other film that year.

    Well okay, it's never happened before now. But at least I can say that from now on!

    I LOVED this film. I am so surprised.

    I don't care that it's a remake, I didn't even know and I loved it.

    I've seen all 3 of the original Infernal Affairs. I liked them, don't know if I'll like this Hollywood version since I dislike Dicaprio.

    Oh, this is weird and both me and my friend thought this:
    Leo was hot in this film!

    Seriously, he has repulsed me prior to this, big time. He almost ruined Titanic for me.
    But now I don't mind him as much.

    SAME! For the first time, I thought he was handsome and not just kinda cute. He's growing up nicely.

    Really liked the film with 1 exception.

    saw it last night and thought it was great.
    so many great actors, the sparks flew off the screen
    hot stuff!
    di Caprio was great in this, but I also thought Mark Wahlberg and Alec baldwin acted their butts off.
    Enjoyed every minute of it, although.. not every minute..

    WOW! I can't believe what I'm hearing.... that was one of the best movies I've seen this year. Jack, Leo, Matt, Mark.... they were all brilliant! This movie deserves top honors.

    Yep thought he looked too young and boyish and just wrong cast in Titantic but oh my in The Departed I can safely say I have changed my opinion. That song is continually stuck in my head now *Comfortably Numb*

    ^^^Lol,same here, Voodoo, same here....
    Though nothing- if not annoyed - about his looks and hated that song with passion.
    Now he looks grown up.I actually watched The Aviator and liked him there!

    Ok so the director and some actors from this movie have been nominated for Oscar and I'm not too happy about that even though I haven't watched this.

    I think the original movies should get more recognition, it isn't fair...

    I saw this with my parents a couple of months ago and absolutely loved it. Excellent direction, acting, writing and soundtrack. I wasn't too keen on Matt Damon, but everyone else was just amazing. You could have heard a pin drop in the theatre by the time the elevator door opened at the end. That scene actually made my stomach hurt - fantastic execution, so to speak. I'll be rooting for it big time at the Oscars.
    I saw a film today, oh boy.
