THE DEPARTED (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Departed,
due to the implant of a mobster within a police department with a simultaneous implanting of a policeman within mobster ranks, becomes a complicated story that requires close viewing and complete involvement to follow its storyline. With its outstanding cast coupled with Director Martin Scorcese’s perfect orchestration, it becomes a winner in all areas for viewing entertainment. There is no downtime in this film, every second builds interest and leads to a satisfying tension-filled conclusion.
