Excellent drama - great acting with plenty of twists.
What an awesome movie... great enough for ME to write a review. What a great actor Leonardo is.. and the others.
This is a really great movie. I wish I knew what makes a movie great but I don't. You'll get no warm fuzzies from this but it is outstanding and what is to like about the Irish Mafia anyway. Jack Nicholson... Read more is fabulous, his best since "A Few Good Men" in my opinion. Leonardo De Caprio and Matt Damon are also first class, but there is no bad acting or directing in this. Definitely not just a movie for the blokes either, but for anyone who likes twists and turns and suspense. Far superior to "Infernal Affairs" in My opinion. Thoroughly recommend.
Totally formulaic. The basic plot line has grey hair and a zimmer frame. Nevertheless the movie charges forward on a wave of violence (how many people are shot in the head, 16 or was it 17?) and expletives... Read more, propelled by a crew of name actors, each of whom is capable of a whole lot more. A cynical Hollywood potboiler.
Good movie. Plenty of big names, they were all awesome. Kind of long, but good story, plenty of suspense.
Very full on movie and one which my husband absolutely adored. It is very long, and at times a little too full on for me, but it is definitely worthy of a watch if just for Jack Nicholson's and Leonardo's performances.
A good movie. But a little too slow for me. The acting was awesome however
I didn't like this movie as I found it too slow for my liking.
This is a very good remake of Infernal Affairs. It follows that film fairly closely and it translates well into a Boston setting. But the cat and mouse aspect isn't so well done here, but it makes up... Read more for it in style and solid acting. Sucks to be Scorsese though - finally getting an Oscar, but for a copy of someone else's film.
I expected a lot from this movie based on its high IMDb rating and big names on both side of the camera but it just didn't work. Most it comes down to lazy execution; average acting, directing and script... Read more writing from people you expect better. This movie should have been a tense mole-hunt thriller but there was no attempt to give the viewer any suspense. There were no surprises and no reason to care about the fate of any of the characters. As if that wasn't enough, the soundtrack did nothing to help the atmosphere of the movie and the ending was rather unsatisfying. I wouldn't go so far as to recommend avoiding this movie - just don't expect anything great.
