One of the best movies of all time in my opinion. Amazing acting, clever script & intense story. I have a hard time finding anything I don't like about this movie!

Not a huge fan of Martin S(director's couch and all!)-however, the actors and actresses who do all the work are truly awe-inspiring and this is a movie that is fast paced, exciting and worth every penny either in a movie theatre, at home or from your local library!

Easily Martin Scorsese's best film. Watching it, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It is not for the squeamish. The violence is, however, necessary. Violent crime is no walk in the park. Jack Nicholson gives a beautifully over-the top performance as does Mark Wahlberg. Leonardo Di Caprio and Matt Damon, who are eerily similar in appearance, play two sides of the same coin - good cop / bad cop - good rat / bad rat. Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin bring some stability to the constant turmoil. Vera Farmiga is the heart, but is it misplaced? Nicholson, as the mob boss, is at the same time menacing and nurturing. He takes on role of philosopher as he justifies his misdeeds. It's refreshing to see a mob movie without the Italian stereotypes. It's all Irish here - South Boston ("Southie") cops and mobsters alike and sometimes the line between them gets blurred.

Not one of the best of Martin Scoses, but is a great one and interesting one.
Leonard’s performance is always an attraction. Worth to watch it again.

Great plot line in The Departed. Can see why it won an academy award for best picture. It is the type of movie that the academy likes. It is not the type of movie that I go for. Too much swearing & excessive violence. The plot is somewhat obscured by the violence & obscene language. Europe would have made a better movie.

Frank Costello: [to Colin] One of us had to die. With me, it tends to be the other guy.

Madolyn: Why is the last patient of the day always the hardest?
Billy Costigan: Because you're tired and you don't give a s**t. It's not super-natural.

Frank Costello: I don't want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me. Years ago we had the church. That was only a way of saying - we had each other. The Knights of Columbus were real head-breakers; true guineas. They took over their piece of the city. Twenty years after an Irishman couldn't get a fucking job, we had the presidency. May he rest in peace. That's what the niggers don't realize. If I got one thing against the black chappies, it's this - no one gives it to you. You have to take it.

Frank Costello: When you decide to be something, you can be it. That's what they don't tell you in the church. When I was your age they would say we can become cops, or criminals. Today, what I'm saying to you is this: when you're facing a loaded gun, what's the difference?

Frank Costello: You do well in school?
Young Colin: Yeah
Frank Costello: Good. So did I. They call that a paradox.
