vastly over-rated and simply not up to scratch,
This review is from: The Departed (2006) [DVD] (DVD)
the majority of the casting simply doesn't work and it's on a slide from there - it's a good ole pals club and it shows. I've watched it a few times and it doesn't get better - the ending scenes are definitely a 'we ran out of money' look and feel, although I simply can't believe they did.... maybe the makers just got bored as well and hashed together a quick exit.
'mr raging bull' and 'mr goodfellas' learned little from his other duff blockbuster about gangs in ny - yet again he gives dicaprio a lead tough guy role and yet again the film plays as an in-joke. the costume drama hokum of 'gangs' now plays as just hokum.
