The Departed - movie review

The Departed - starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson & Mark Wahlberg. Directed by Martin Scorsese. The cast is good enough to draw your attention. But I'm very careful with that already since Lucky Number Slevin. Somehow this movie turned out real good and it has gained some nominatons for the Golden Globe Awards.

Leonardo was brought up in a not so good environment where his family members were involved in notorious matters and it almost affected his application to join the police force. Whereas for Matt, his actual parents were gone and were brought up by a non-related man. This is a movie of the police and the bad guys placing their mole into each other's camp. One is to discover the bad guy's next bad intention and the other guy will leak out the police's next operation. Intense cover-up here and there led to the death of the police chief.

Both of the moles were trying to find out and expose each other. Both moles fell in love for the same girl not knowing that the mole has the same crush too. This is one of those movies where all the main cast actually died. Unbelievable. A must watch movie but it was a bit slow in the beginning part. The heat will pick up in the middle. You need to watch the whole movie instead of forwarding it to the middle since I told you so that you can understand the movie in the end.
