Slow start. Several awkward interactions between characters. Second half of movie was much better. A few gory scenes not for the faint hearted.
Nothing I like better in a movie than surprises and/or unexpected twists. I'm also a sucker for organized crime films. The Departed was the perfect combo.
One of my favorite movies when it first came out, and unlike other movies that I grow tired of over time, this one withstood the test of time. I still enjoy watching it after 10+ views. Action packed. Noble themes.
Great movie but ends abruptly.
Great movie. I'm not typically drawn to love stories, but this one impressed me. Strong acting. Strong story. Strong ending.
