Wow. Marty Scor is going to get an Oscar for this one.
First off, yes its a remake of a Hong Kong movie called Infernal Affairs. But it is not the same movie. Ive seen both and The Departed is much better IMO. Its not that I hate reading subtitles, but as a movie freak/actor/director ect, I firmly believe that film is a visual and audio experiance. Having to read subtitles takes away from my viewing experiance because something will always be missed on screen while you are reading the subbies. And I read/comprehend at 800 words per minute.(Average WPM is 200-250)
But back to The Departed. Everyone in this movie turns in an awsome performance. No one phones anything in here. Jack, Leo, Matty D(proves again why he is BETTER than Affleck) all turn in performances that will get them at least Oscar consideration. Just a great movie in a year of mostly crap. The best part is the suspense that builds up. Its awsome.
Do yourself a favor and see it. Even if you are a Hong Kong cinephila, go see it and see why Scorcese is one of the best on the planet.
