We were really enjoying this movie but the narrative was disturbed by the DVD becoming stuck. - this happened at the most crucial part of the movie. We have subsequently stopped our membership as this has happened with other DVDs.
what an outstanding film I just loved it was so awesome
Great Cast, Great acting............................Possibly a little over done on the blood spurting cold blooded killings..............But then again, that was the way of life in America back then, with Gangland killers and crooked cops
Posted Tuesday 17th July 2012
Only watched 13 minutes. Very violent and swearing every 5 seconds. No idea why I found the trailer interesting...
What a powerful movie. Great cast and first class acting. Would not normally watch a movie with such a lot of bad language throughout but in this case be prepared and enjoy it for the great movie it is. Highly recommend.
There is swearing. OMFG. Get over it. This is cinema gold.
this movie was the worst movie i have ever seen
suspens keep me seat all the time wonderful
Enjoyable, great cast, and you never knoe whats coming
In my opinion it was not worth the viewing and way too much swearing for me as every second was F... it lost the rhythm of the script.
Good film with good performances by the actors.
Somewhat violent - but a gripping story - and an excellent cast. Leonardo DiCaprio shines as usual.
gripping story, will have you on the edge of your chair. Great acting. Highly recommend this movie, keeps you guessing the whole time.
Martin Scorsese great plot stellar cast = SUPER SUPERB AWESOMENESS TIMES INFINITY.
Great movie and maybe there is some f... words here and then ,after all it is a crime movie ,gangsters,corrupt cops what else do you expect?....i loved it
I found Matt and Leonardo looked too similar and as a result I was confused. After that confusion, other things confused me. I didn't like it. What a shame, because I think the story was good, and so were the actors.
This movie was the worst. It had soooo much swearing in it that we had to turn it off after 10 mins. The plot was lost in amongst all the f....'s
Matt Damon played the role of the bad guy brilliantly.
An unpredictable movie. A little confusing at times, but a story that will keep you on the edge of suspense is worth the watch.
A great good cop, bad cop film!
After trying to work out who was who and doing what for about 25 minutes, and deciding we couldn't stand hearing the f*** word every second word for another two hours, we put this DVD back in the envelope, and watched TV for the rest of the evening.
Very unpredictable. Great movie.
enjoyed by the men in the house
FBI with appaling language, no sentence without the F word said over & over again. They seemed to be doing more damage to the world than the Prisoners.Only watched 10 mins.!
Good movie, worth watching. Rapid fire dialogue a little hard to follow, especially with the excessive use of poor langauge.
I loved this film. It is one of those films I could watch several times and still enjoy it. All star cast was great. It has everything......sexy, funny, thrilling, raw and suspenseful. One of favourite films yet.
Didn't want to watch it as my husband has cancer
Fantastic acting but that's not enough to make a good film. The storyline and premise was ok to start with, but then it got so bad that I found myself mentally re-writing the script while I was watching it. If you like Martin Scorsese don't watch this - it will seriously degrade your opinion of him as a director.
A gangster infiltrating the state troopers and a cop undercover as a gangster, as the police and the organised crime family each hunts its own mole. A fitting translation of Infernal Affairs from Hong Kong to Boston, including some directly copied scenes. This movie is well done but in my books the credit for the good plot goes to the original - those who have not already seen the twists in the Cantonese film will appreciate them all the more here.
I really enjoyed The Departed. The cast was incredible and the sarcastic wit of Mark Wahlberg was surperb...had me laughing!!! He played a tool to a tee..lol. Very impressive and the ending was the only viable option...they were all pretty much screwed. Two thumbs up..:)
Great acting, great cast, filming, story.
Bloody, bloody, bloody. Ultimately not uplifting which Iike my movies to be.
Fantastic crew and well directed. The performances by DiCaprio, Nicholson and Wahlberg, very entertaining and engrossing. A modern classic.
A few days after I'd seen this film, I couldn't remember what it was about or, indeed, whether I'd seen it or not. I guess that tells you what I thought of it - very little. I've never been a great fan of DiCapprio, especially after I'd seen him interviewed for the Titanic. Matt Damon was good but the director certainly didn't get the most out of him (he hardly showed any emotion at all). However, Jack Nicholson just seems to get better and better, enhancing any film he is in.
Impressive cast and great acting, but for me the language was egregious and the storyline was a bore; couldn't sit still past the halfway mark so switched it off.
I guess I don't like gangster/mobster films.
engaging from the outset, supported by a stella cast
The movie would have gotten a 4 if not for the extremely excessive language. I don't believe more than 20 or 30 seconds went by where there was not at least 1 swear word. And I counted at least 30 occurances of the 'c' word alone. The language was so excessive that at times I lost track of the plot. Such a shame for such acclaimed actors. I can handle moderate language in a movie when it is called for, so if you dond mind hearing language in almost every sentance I am sure you will enjoy the movie. If not, you'll squirm all the way through it.
Good solid acting. Storyline not bad. If you like conspiracy/corrupt cop flicks, definitely worth a watch.
Great cast, great story all the way through. Plenty of action. Haven't spoken to anyone who hasn't thought this was a great movie. Loved it!
Not a bad outing for a big-name movie!
Excellent script and GREAT ending!
I never watch a movie more than once, but this is so brilliant, I had to see it again.
Great movie! Lots of twists to keep you on the edge of your seat. Great cast. Scorsese at his best.
Awesome movie with alot of big names. Suspenseful,great twists, edge of seat action. Loved it!
The original Hong Kong classic 'Infernal Affairs' that it copied is a lot better though in both acting and action
It's a little more complicated than the HK version and some good additions to the plot. I still find the HK version a little more classy. Good movie nonetheless, feels like a drag at times probably because it's a 3 hr film
Not bad. A good blokes movie. Lots of blood and killing.
Really action packed movie. I really enjoyed this one.
Far too much explicit language
The movie starts off in a very promising way.........but the end is just not good enough. Watch it if you like Leo and Jack.
Great plot and acting, but I was really turned off by the constant high level swearing. Despite it having a great storyline, it left me feeling negative and depressed.
great film, good interesting story line, not too many cliches and not too cheesy. enjoyed this very much
Excellent movie with a great cast. Typical Scorcese film which most should enjoy
Great movie but a lot of swearing. A good plot and great actors.
Good plot but the movie doesn't flow very well. All the actors are excellent. Worth seeing but not a blockbuster.
One of those movies you have to see again. Great script, tight direction (as you'd expect), just mesmerising performances from the cast.
Brilliant cast and a wonderful twist in the tale, very entertaining.
Excellent love all of the twists and turns one I could watch over and over.
long. interesting storyline but needs to be followed closly.
heavy american Police drama - lots of blood etc. Got monotonous after a while.
I have to say that I thought that I might not like this. However, the direction and screenplay were so excellent that I was hypnotised throughout the movie. Such clever writing and, despite the expected denouement, the ending was satisfying. I really liked the linked strands of the two protagonists' lives, this was a very clever movie indeed. Matt Damon was outstanding and now that Leonardo is rather less epicene than many of his earlier films, also was very good.
Great movie, one of the best performances I have seen from Leonardo Dicaprio, but it was great acting all round. Good plot and storyline as well, which was brought to life by the whole cast.
I don't usually hire action movies, this was hired for my husband but I have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed the action.
Coulda been a good movie, too many flashbacks, dialogue hard to understand, acting pretty second rate
Filled with fantastic actors, intricate plot
Filled with fantastic actors, intricate plot
Big cast with very little return
Gotta love a movie that has Matt Damon as a bad guy and LDC as a good guy with guts. LDC continues to impress (you almost forget him on the bow of that ship shouting that he's king of the world). Not all will appreciate the swearing. The number of shootings numbs you after a while. If this type of movie is your "thing" you'll love it. I did. A truly stellar cast holds it together.
strange movie but was enjoyed
Loved the flick especially the twist at the end
Excellent. Gripping story. Amazing performances by all cast.
Little bit slow and obvious but still a good watch
Great cast and splendid performances. Would watch it again in the future
Fast moving plot, fascinating acting by some masters of their craft, but a little too many flaws concerning "believability" for my liking. The choreography of the final scenes was breath-taking.
Really good movie, got to watch it!
One of the best films i've ever seen!
Wow! What a movie! This one is up there with the best of them. A clever plot and heart stopping moments of suspense.
Didn't enjoy this film,got lost through it till the end
Hey.... say what you like, but I think it's better than the original (Internal Affairs).
Excellent movie. The story is constantly surprising you. There's no stereotypes of the "good" and "bad" guys here. Great script and cast.
good movie, worth a watch for sure
Way too much testosterone for me in this movie. If you like Underbelly with a New Yorker-Irish twist, then you will probably love this beat 'em up, shoot 'em up, cut 'em up violent folly that I could only take for 30 minutes. I thought it was an action movie, so not quite what I was expecting. Not my thing, despite an A-list cast.
I can't remember which means it can't be that good!! I seem to recall the ending was poor.
awesome, lenardo is great, unexpected twists
Great movie and with a non predictable ending. Worth watching
Excellent acting and lots of twists in the plot.
The best move since Pulp Fiction, a true classic...faultless in every way.
Not nearly as good as the original - a waste of acting talent - not Scorsese's best by a long shot
A good cast in Damon, DiCaprio, Nicholson, Baldwin and Sheen. A couple of unexpected twists at the end and a bit bloodthirsty in parts but a good thriller all the same.
Yet another reason why I'm a Jack Nicholson fan. He plays one nasty SOB and is well teamed with a gritty DiCaprio. This is a very raw, edgy film with plenty of action and a rather interesting twist at the end.
Rave reviews about this movie but I honestly didnt follow it. The Americans didn't succeed with this one.
Excellent movie, good actors in it as well.
Violent and cliche-ridden but made interesting by the number and pace of plot twists. Nicholson and Damon are stand-outs among a star-studded cast.
The cast is good. The screenplay is great. However, the story is very much predictable because the movie replicates a Hong Kong movie, without a single modification on the original story.
Very enjoyable. Absorbing plot, great cast, great acting.
Rubbish all unreal..give it a miss
A few twists & turns - good movie
A bad film. Big time actors, but totally excessive foul language (beyond what was needed to depict gangsters) and violence. Just what young people today need to watch to turn them into 'low lifes'. (Did not complete the film).
Fantastic, not for the young though !!
it's good, up until the last 10 mins!
Absolutely edge of the seat drama. A pity about the language, which I don't believe assists the gripping story of undercover police work. The question I kept asking myself is, why would anyone do this work? The chances of survival seem minimal during and after. I was constantly reminded of our Australian production 'Underbelly'.
I thought I'd had my fill of Scorsese Mob based bloodbaths but "The Departed" is illuminated by some wonderful performances. Matt Damon is creepily respectable as the bent cop, Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin manage to transcend their usual on screen personae and even old Jack manages to rise above his usual standard range of patented Nicholson mannerisms (the man would be nothing without his eyebrows!). However, Leo is the absolute standout, mesmerisingly catching the increasingly doubtful and jaded exhaustion of his constant double life. This one is worth the investment in time.
Enjoyed every bit of this film
Scorsese's attempt to do another Goodfellas. Confusing and unlikely plot, plenty of holes, no suspense, too long. Don't waste your time.
Fantastic! Great cast. Have to concentrate to keep track of who's on who's side, but well worth the effort!
amazing. Incredible performances by Jack, Matt and Leonardo. one of my favourite movies ever
Brilliant movie.... Lots of twists.....had you thinking right to the end
Not to be missed - a great movie!!!!
Two police recruits are involved with a vicious gang - one undercover the other has a conection with the chief. A complicated set of cenarious follows which gets them all killed. Thrilling to the end.
This movie could have been really great, but the over the top ending really undid the credibility of it for me. No feel good ending thats for sure and the overuse of the "f" bomb and graphic violence is fairly typical of scorcese and again, overused to the point of losing its impact. And to top it off its a looooonnnnggg movie!
Great film. Very funny script. Leonardo is brilliant in it.
excellent movie, has you watching from start to finish. A movie you can watch twice
A smart, tight thriller full of us and them and a whole heap of double crosses. At 150 minutes it may seem long but the ending is definitely worth the wait. I have to say, the love interest thing was an unnecessary padder.
overall the movie was awesome. characters were well-played especially that of Jack (played by Leonard diCaprio). the thrill & excitement got me at the edge of my seat.
Yea just alrite, the original version is way much better. I have no idea wh on earth this movie won best pic last year
Pretty average-- the story line was quite ropey, and didn't quite gell. Good performances from Jack Nicholson and Matt Damon, however not enough on screen chemistry.
Good as original.
This is very rare case....
casts are excellent.
Great, fantastic worth watching
slowish start but once it gets going it is excellent. great acting throughout
Enjoyable although a quite violent in parts.
Brilliant. Jack Nicholson at his eye-rolling, carpet-chewing best!
If you like a lot of dead people without realy knowing why, this is the film for you.Ed
absolutely brilliant. I know this is a remake of a Hong Kong film (I'll probably watch that one too) but it's still an awesome film. Great performance from Leonardo Di Caprio.
Excellent,good cast,great movie
This movie was a bit slow to understand.The cast was excellent.The story line could have been a bit more suspenseful.I am sure it will be a popular movie if you are into that kind of films.
Worth watching. Great actors doing great acting!
excellent story, excellent actors and acting, very enjoyable
This was a very thrilling movie throughout. Fabulous acting and enthralling performances from all. Well worth watching!!!
Better (and bloodier) than I thought it would be.
great film - loved the intrigue - very clever.
an extremely great movie. "heavy" in some areas in that the way people are used & "disposed" of. Good conclusion. Would definitely watch it again.
Very slow going, and very disappointing.
I was expecting more, especially with Matt Damon and Leonardo Dicaprio in this film.
Wow, on the edge of your seat for the last twenty minutes. The whole movie is a spider web of plot, you do not know what is coming. This is a must see thriller!
Didn't like it. Way to much swearing!! And a terrible ending!
Excellent range of 'great' actors bring this movie to the fore, needs to be watched carefully or you miss out on the answers
Damon and Di Caprio - its gotta be good. And it is. I enjoyed this high tension movie.
Excellent good cop bad cop movie, recommend it.
Couldn't really get into it. Too much talking not enough action.
Great movie, a bit confusing at first as the two leads are very similar in looks, but moved along beautifully with a big ending.
Fantatstic story. Great acting. Deeply involving characters.
Great plot but the use of "f" word much too prolific for our taste
Brilliant movie with plenty of action & plot twists. Who will eventually come out on top? Shame about the overuse of bad language but it seems to be the norm these day in everyday society....
Relitivily enjoyable but nothing to appealing for the younger age group as such. Quality of the film was good for the right person.
If you liked this movie then check out the original that this was taken from - Infernal Affairs. Infernal Affiars personally is a much better!
A most enthralling movie with action, thrill and violence.
Brilliant movie. great actors and story line....not to be missed.
Very well acted. Great movie although the ending could have been better.
Very voilent but kept my interest however I had to look away at times.
An excellent, but complex film. Although, if you can bear the subtitles, the orginal "Infernal Affairs" is a better film.
Great movie. Loved the storyline. Interesting plot.
Slow to start but got there.
Excellent movie, fantastic plot and ending I did not pick. Scorse at his best
Very cool - great twist at the end!
What a great movie!! Was a bit convoluted to start but once you get your head around it, its non stop action to the end. Jack Nicholson is a legend and Di Caprio really proves himself. Matt Damon has limited acting abillity so was perfectly cast in his role as the quiet, sedate agent. Great story line that has you cheering the good guys on and hoping the bad guy gets whats coming to him. Brilliant.
Boys will be boys.
"Stop laughing, this isn't reality TV.
A rivoting journey full of twists and turns. High grade actors doing a high grade job!
This movie was really good great cast,Cindy didn't mind it either although not a chich flick.
Predictable action movie, Walberg is great as usual, found myself hating all the characters. Not a happy sort of movie thats for sure.
The Departed had a great cast Leonardo was really good it appears yet another successful movie for him as his ability to become a great actor was seen in What's eating Gilbert Grape.
a brillant movie that will get your mind going on whos who.
It is all right... nothing so special.
A lot of violence but down to story of a violent group of people with no punches pulled.
not as good as blood diamond
This movie captured every minute of my attention. Leonardo's acting exceled his previous movies.I was on the edge of my seat. I could definately watch this one again, the acting was brilliant
Brilliant story (too much swearing) well acted by all the leading actors,esp Leonardo who I don't usually like. Fantastic sound track.Couldn't guess the ending.
Great story line, loved the actors, excellent.
I'm not a fan of several of the actors in this but I thought the acting was excellent and the storyline intense. I can see why it won an Oscar.
wow, out there with amazing performances. definitely a winner.
Not to be missed! You will love it, don't hesitate.
Great story, classy acting, di Caprio is superb, pity the inevitable gratuitous violence, otherwise it could have gained another star at least.
Great film, weird ending but still very enjoyable.
Great film, weird ending but still very enjoyable.
Slow to develop but has interesting twists throughiout the latter half of the movie. Language is very rough and depicts violent death scenes typical of mob style violence.
Wasn't what I expected but still worth watching, a good cast and a twist at the end.
Di Caprio (IMHO) gets better and better, these meatier roles fit his maturing looks. Also full of other big names and good performances. Not a brilliant film, but better than just "worth watching".
This is one of the best movies i have ever seen .. THe actors were very good , but with that cast i expected it anyway !!!!!!!!
Confusing, too much swearing and a lousy plot.
great down to earth movie everybodys gotta love the good cop bad cop scenes in this one HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Appealing actors and a gripping plot which kept one intrigued throughout.
Overall a good movie. Had me confused at first because the two main characters look alike and I thought they were the same person (duh)lol
How could this movie not be good with such a terrific trio - Jack Nicholson, Leonardo Dicaprio and Matt Damon. Not forgetting Martin Sheen.
Overated crime drama that does not improve on the original Hong Kong movie, Infernal Affairs. The whole thing comes across as too much of a stretch unlike the original. Another mindless thug movie from Scorsese dressed up as art.
Total boys movie... my partner loved it... great storyline and cast..
Great movie, fast paced, superb acting from a fabulous cast. Would watch again.
This movie had me on the edge of my seat...pretty rare these days with all the predictable shlock that gets turned out. Once again Leonardo DiCaprio has blown me away and how creepy was Matt Damon!!Jack brilliant as usual...you will love this movie!
Excellent movie. Excellent acting. Leonardo has become of age. Unexpected ending.
Great entertainment - never tire of watching Jack Nicholson strut his stuff!
Very good entertainment. Cleverly put together. Twists and turns keep you thinking all the way through this one. Some excellent acting and directing. Well worth a look.
Brilliant cast and a highly engaging story. Don't normally like 'gansta films' but this one is something special
More twists than a packet of twisties. Good acting by Damon and DiCaprio.
This was not my scene! I always watch the Oscar winning film out of interest and found last year's choice of Crash an interesting one, but this did not appeal at all, mainly because of the sordid topic and language.
found this movie really hard to follow. I am still not sure what was happening and am confused to which person was a cop and who wasn't. Thought with the actors involved would be better than it was
Not too bad but would not watch it again
A good film with an intricate plot. The ending is less than satisfactory though. Despite this, it's well worth a look.
As a member of fairly long standing I would rate this as the best film I have borrowed so far. The only things I didn't appreciate were their accents.
Lots of action and exciting ending. It had you guessing.
The use of the fxxx word was grossly overdone -- we don't mind hearing if now and then but that was a bit over the odds.
Good action with several nice plot twists.
I liked this movie and it is worth watching. A good long movie with a decent story and kept us interested right to the end. The swearing is very heavy but what you might expect from these types of characters.
Every once in a while there comes a movie that makes you sit and listen and try not to miss a thing and has you rivetted to your seat from start to finish. This one has it all outstanding cast, great storyline, superb acting and brilliantly directed. Would have to be up there with the best i've ever seen. Bravo
I don't really understand all the hype around this movie. Sure, the acting and characterisation was superb but with that cheap ending it did not deserve best picture. The ending was the biggest flaw in the HK version; I thought they would have improved on it.
Nasty, nasty, nasty. Very enjoyable though.
Scorsese at his best, full of violence what else do you expect from him ? Excellent cast unpredictable twists & turns, full of language but relevant not overdone like some. Enjoyable thriller.
Although a tad violent, this is a very well crafted movie. Athough I was never a Leonardo DiCaprio fan in the past, he is really great in this role.
lot of shooting and I didn't like the ending but a good movie just the same
How does the execrable Matt Damon character manage to string the psychiatrist girlfriend along for so long ? This and a couple of other plot mysteries are my only quibble with this movie. Blood, gore, and four letter words a-plenty, but at least they aren't gratuitous. Gripping!
True edge of your seat entertainment. "Convenient" way to end a long movie?
What a great film. I was a bit dubious that it would be too violent, but it was cleverly handled by a great director. The acting was top class - Jack Nicholson, Leonardo di Caprio and Matt Damon along with others. Leonardo has really come of age - what a spunk! The story was easy to follow and kept me on my toes the whole time. I haven't enjoyed an American film this much in a long time.
A great movie, with all round talent.
This movie was absolutely brilliant. Scorcese is an amazing director and Dicaprio one of the best actors around. Definitely a departure from the usual predictable Hollywood formula.
Very, very anti-climactic ending. Weird
enjoyed watching but found a bit complex
a wonderful movie with many twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end
For a long movie, its definately worth a watch
This is a great film which had great tension building scenarios & excellent performances from a great cast.
scorsese does it again.
fabulous cast and fast-moving, tense action.
marky mark was just wonderful in his role....that boy can act!
and so was everyone else, apart from jack nicholson who was just a tiny bit over the top.
plenty of plot twists to keep you guessing!
Was very good viewing - great acting and not a bad story
A bit more confronting in violance and course language than I has anticipated
a good movie ruined by unecessary, gratutious and continuous foul language
Good plot and overall action. Have to do a bit of thinking to remember who is on who's side. Fairly violent. Great character rolls.
I was on the edge of my seat. I could definately watch this one again, the acting was brilliant.
Great action movie! All star cast
Much, much better than the HK version. This movie captures every minute of my attention. Leonardo's acting excels his previous movies.
This didn't win the Oscar for nothing! Great cast, good story and scripting, a bit bloody but not unnecessarily. All around a great film.
Not to be missed, a great movie.
A hunt in on for two rats: one (Matt Damon) who has infiltrated the police and the other (Leonardo DeCaprio) into a mob of Boston gangsters ruled by Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson). Both rats are eventually trapped, but as we’re pessimistically reminded at the film’s conclusion when one rat dies there’s always another to take it’s place. Much of the macho, testosterone loaded action is infected with black humour and bullet-ridden violence. As good as Scorsese’s Academy Award winner is -- superior acting sans hammy demonic Nicholson, a well executed convoluted undercover plot quite dependent on mobile phone technology, and clever expletive driven dialogue – you’ve got to decide if watching bloody brutal thuggery has been worth it when you come out the other side. It’s your call.
This movie was excellent. Great story line, great acting (yes even Matt Damon - you soon get over his sucky boston accent). Definately recommend.
Good Story, lot's off big names, great movie.
Great movie. Did not expect it to be so captivating. Thoroughly deserved Best Picture
Slow starting as I couldn't understand what was happening, could be just me!!
Disappointed with the ending! Although still worth watching.
I did not like the overuse of the "F" word, and it was a bit violent for me. Thought the plot was ok though.
a blokie movie lots of searing and violence
Extremely limited vocabulary.
Too hard to follow. Badly directed. Confusing. Who the hell is doing what now.
Really good movie about real life in USA.
Soooo good. Good plot. Not often does the good guy NOT come out with guns blazing at the end of the movie. So many twists. Excellent characters. Fantastic performance by all....
different style to see jack nicholson in.
This movie has brilliant perfromances and and a fantastic script, its has anything you want from a film
good movie to much swearing
I was tossing up whether it was actually worth watching or only if you could find nothing else. Great Cast but it was toooo long and the ending was absolutely disappointing. Indicative of Academy Award winners of the recent past.
This movie was excellent, best one I have seen for sometime
This movie contains a lot of swearing, Just not necessary.
What a top flick, with all these names in the film I thought it probably got the oscar by default but it is a very interesting and engaging film. I think Mark Wahlberg is the highlight of this film, I couldn't stop laughing at his character. Many twists and turns in this one, highly recommended.
I thought this movie was great, lots of great actors and lots of unexpected twists and suprises.
Great show,lots of action,great actors & a surprise finsih
I thought this movie was ok but not something I would get again, its a once you have watched it thats enough. If I had never seen it I wouldnt have missed anything.
Excellent movie not to be missed!!!
Really good movie. Plenty of twists. You don't really know how it's going to end until it happens. Matt Damon is brilliant and plays the part well.
Remake to the Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs stays faithful to the original story but has a few minor changes due to culture differences. This is one of Martin Scorsese's best films and the ending is a big improvement over the original version.
Excellent movie with a great plot and an unexpected ending.
At first i thought "Here we go another Hollywood rip-off" so i was a bit hesitant about watching this film, hence i didn't see it at the cinema. After giving it a shot, it seems Scorsese did a really good job of directing it and didn't turn it to Hollywood trash. Superb acting by Nicholson and Dicaprio. All in all a good effort and well worth watching.
If you enjoyed this title i'd suggest getting the film it was based on! HK's Internal Affairs!
I did enjoy this movie, but very heavy.
A bit much blood and guts
I like blood and guts in martial arts movies.
boring despite good actors..hated all the unneccessary swearing. very disappointed.
another great not to be missed movie, lots of twists & turns watch out for great cameo appearences of famous actors
Excellent movie. Excellent cast. Best movie I have seen all year!
Bit hard to follow the story when every second word was f**k!
Turned out better than I thought it would.
Very good movie, not excellent, good plot. You can never guess exactly where it is going. Has a few unbelievable bits in it, but nothing to worry about. Good twist at the end
The most enjoying thing i've seen in years.
Brilliant movie, brilliant cast, worthy of best film.
This film is brilliant. Be warned though, there is loads of swearing, buckets of blood, tons of violence, so if you are easily offended I would give this one a wide berth. The film deserved the Oscars that it received. A definite must view.
