This week's reviewed movie is:
The Departed




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



This clever double agent complex thriller is about undercover cops and criminal moles.

They have assembled a great cast of actors, like Matt Damon, DiCaprio, and an outrageous performance by Jack Nicholson, who I thought stole the show.

The movie has clever twists and turns with a neat love triangle, but remains more a man's movie in every way.

It's fun and certainly funny at times, and one of my best pictures of the year.

A great cast, good script and masterful direction highlight this modern-day crime drama set on the mean streets of Boston.

It's a film about family, betrayal and blood ties that has more twists than a Chubby Checker dance marathon.

But it's Jack Nicholson's Frank Costello that really make this one work, with an underplayed over-the-top performance that will have you both laughing and cringing in fear.

This moody violent Boston crime story is full of energy, featuring all-star great actors sinking their teeth into the meatiest of roles and a plot that bubbles with tension.

The movie is about an undercover cop who infiltrates the mob and a gangster who penetrates the police.

It's a completely mixed-up puzzle and becomes a guessing game of cat and mouse as heads get knocked around as each hunts down his rival.
