Should be good, but it's one of those movies that I feel like I'd enjoy watching it at home more than a theater.

The Departed was great up until the last 15 minutes or so.

I have to agree. It's a pretty damn good movie.

It was NOT BAD, but it wasn't great. I'd say it was good. It's a lot better than Iron Man 7 or Transformers 5 or all this other hollywood bullshit that keeps going our way. 2nd best movie of the year behind Inception.

Ben Affly should get some type of Oscar for this.

Edit: Not Ben Himself , but his movie.

***** SPOILER ALERT! *****











Meh. I liked the shootout with Nicholson but thought they couldve done better than killing dicaprio, the other cop, then the guy that killed them, and finally killing Damon. Just seemed like a letdown when I was hoping for a better resolution to it all...

I thought it fit right in with how the story played out. Rats eat each other, that is how it goes. What happened to Dicaprio was strictly shock value. I didn't see that coming. Which, generally, is out of the norm for me. Most scripts are pretty obvious with whats going to happen.

The reason that The Departed ended the way it did was because it was a remake of a Japanese movie, Infernal Affairs.

You can't remake a movie(well) and change the ending significantly, imo.

If you liked The Departed, you should check out Infernal Affairs. It is Japanese, so its subtitled, but its a really good movie. Instead of the Irish Mob, it deals with the Japanese Yakuza.

I said I was going to be disappointed if Blake Lively didn't shoe her tits, and I am not disappointed.

Give me a dollar.
