The Departed(2006) was a Martin Scorcese film starring a great ensemble cast of Leonardo Di Caprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Vera Farmiga, and Mark Wahlberg. Today at Life is a Chance, another entertainment article is all about its review.
The story is majorly a gangster-police feud in the Boston area. Jack Nicholson plays as the mob head Frank Costello. His illegal and criminal activities go undisturbing and rough, as he takes in Colin Sullivan(Matt Damon) into his gangster business. Frank's ambitions place him within the Massachusetts Police working as a mole for him. The story features Billy Costigan(Leonardo Di Caprio) in parallel story mode.
While Costigan works as a mole for the Police within Costello's mob, the movie paces forward. The exciting point the movie puts forward as the double cat & mouse game is surefire entertainment. Mark Walhberg plays as Dignam, who is literally an abusive word-expert, often pissing off the characters. The movie ends on a high note, with confusion stirring in the minds of the characters, except the audience. Scorcese provides smooth imagery as the last shot winds up on a rat sneaking out.
The Departed is a fine movie that could keep you on till the very end, with an exceptional performance by the cast. The movie is a definite watch for gangster genre lovers. It peaks and rises often and breaks the suspense bubble until the very end. The cinematography is another underrated thing, punching in the right tone for the entire film. Dont miss it for this extraordinary cast.
