Movie Review

The Departed (2006)

Sixteen years after Good Fellas (1990) Martin Scorsese gave another gangster film – The Departed (2006). The film is the about two moles; the first being Colin Sullivan (played by Matt Damon) planted inside Massachusetts Police by Irish smuggler Frank (Jack Nicholson) and the second is Billy Costigan (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) planted as a mole inside the smuggling gang by the Police intelligence chief. Rest of the story is what happens as each of them progress in their career.

Fine acting by Leonardo DiCaprio, as he progressively shows his emotional pressure of handling the constant threat to his life inside the gang. The story is based on a Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs and it just flows smoothly, there are no over complicated scenes. A good movie to watch.
