The Departed is full of stars: Leo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, and Vera Farmiga. The story-line follows both an undercover cop that is infiltrating an Irish gang in South Boston and a mole in the police that is helping out the very same Irish gang. All of this is happening while the two of them are trying to identify one another. Though it sounds hard to follow, it really wasn't. You know from the beginning who the mole is and who the rat is, and is it fun to watch
Some things I liked about the movie were the exciting scenes, watching how the two lead characters grew into their respective roles, and Matt Damon. There are also a couple things I didn't like so much about this movie. First, SPOILER ALERT, Matt Damon dies. Second, SPOILER ALERT, pretty much everyone dies. This movie has a lot of bloodshed.
Overall, I give this movie a liked it and recommend it to our readers.
