The Departed was just as good as I was expecting. Jack Nicholson was perfect for the part, and Leonardo DiCaprio was better than I figured he would be (fella’s never been too good with accents, though). Marky Mark played the same character as he did in Four Brothers, more or less, but it works for him.
It’s nearly two and a half hours long, but really didn’t feel like it - Scorsese kept things moving at a good pace. There were a lot of incredibly funny lines that I can’t remember now (mostly from Alec Baldwin) and just enough action to keep things lively until the back-and-forth twisted ending that capped it all off quite nicely.
I’d definitely pay to see it again. Check it out this weekend.
