Movie Review: The Departed

First of all let me say up front, I watched this movie on a plane. For that reason alone, I cannot unconditionally recommend this film. I’m sure that much of the sexual content was trimmed out. Anyhow, what a terrific film in its edited for air travel format. The Dearted tells the story of a mobster who goes undercover in the police department and a police detective who goes undercover in the mob. It is very edge of your seat as these guys go deeper and deeper into their respective organizations and as each gets closer and closer to getting made. It featured a very talented line up, all who performed fabulously: Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, Alec Baldwin, and Jack Nicholson. Fantastic film making. Fantastic acting. Riveting story. This is what all movies should aim for. Highly recommended in its made for air travel format.
