This 151 min crime, drama, adventure REGION B/2 DVD is one of the best films I have seen for quite a while. For a gangster/undercover film it seemed to have everything, a good story line, action, suspense, drama and more twists and turns than the Swiss Alps road system. The film did include bad language, violence and the odd adult scene but in my opinion was part and parcel of the film. The DVD is a two disc set with disc one the main feature and disc two the bonus feature that includes - additional scenes with introductions by Martin Scorsese - Stranger than fiction: The story of the Boston Mob: The real life gangster behind Jack Nicholson's character - Crossing criminal cultures: How little Italy's crime and violence influence Scorsese's work - Theatrical trailer.
Rookie cop Billy Castigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) grew up in crime. That makes him the perfect mole, the man on the inside of the mob run by boss Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson). It's his job to win Costello's trust and help his detective handlers (Mark Wahlberg and Martin Sheen) bring Costello down. Meanwhile SIU officer Colin Sullivan (Matt Daman) has everyone's trust. No one suspects he's Costello's mole.

This is one of my all time favourite movies, judged on how many times I can watch it without being bored. It's a clever and ironic take on "good cop, bad cop" with spectacularly great performances by movie royalty - DiCaprio, Damon, Nicholson, Sheen, Wahlberg, et al under the direction of Martin Scorsese. It's impossible to find any flaw in this uncompromisingly violent but terrifyingly believable movie, and there are plenty features to commend it for, so I'll just mention these: the attention to detail, eg the wee rat that runs along a window sill, and the soundtrack, which is a mix of amazing (and appropriate) tracks - Scorsese seems to be particularly good at that!

What can I say? A cracking gangster v cops movie starring Jack Nicholson, Leo De Caprio, Matt Damon, Ray Winston and Mark Wahlberg.
It was 2.5 hours of a film with plenty of twists and turns.
OK, so there was bad language, violence and gore, just what do you expect from a gangster v cops movie, cracking film!!
Ray Winstone once again in his element as a real bad ass, great stuff!!
