    This actually looks really good. Ole Jack looks like he's perfect for the role, not to mention the rest of the all-star cast.

    I am a big fan of Scorsese, and am very excited about this one.
    I will see it opening night.

    Very well done, possibly DiCaprio's best movie ever. and Mark Wahlberg's best role too.

    Lots of great twists and it really made you feel what it was like to be a mole.

    I really think it was as good as Goodfellas.

    that movie was pretty good until the last 2 minutes whereupon it became a complete pile of shit. I actually left the movie pissed off about the hollywood ending they tacked onto it.

    The original is far superior simply because of the ending. Infernal Affairs kicks the shit out of this movie.

    I have to take issue with this. Wahlberg was a cartoon character in this movie. All he had did was have stupid hair and say "fuck" alot. Anybody could've played that role.

    I wanted to go see this movie really bad but have a sick kid so I wasnt able to. It is getting excellent reviews all around. Several saying it is the best movie of the year so far.

    i didnt mind the shocking ending

    the only beef i had was the over use of quick jokes and the lack of charater development with some of the cast

    all in all i give it 4/5

    This movie was awesome. I wanted to see it from the first trailer I saw. I was not disappointed in the slightest. From the moment the movie started, until the rolling of the credits, I was blown away. The action was intense and I loved the story. Nicholson was as always a shining star. Everyone else played their parts extremely well. I cant think of a single bad thing about the movie.

    Scorcese owns everything else. That said this was far from his best work though it was still a good movie. No one see it today wait until opening weekend is over so I can win my bet on it grossing under 22mil opening weekend.

    Sorry, I meant it as a backhanded compliment since I really think Marky Mark was a much better rapper than an actor.

    Oops, another backhanded compliment since he wasn't a very good rapper either.

    I think the thing I disliked most...SPOILER WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


















    was the way Leo died, it was completely ridiculous and disjoint. They did a very poor job of tying this together. The guy that shot him benefited none from this action and the whole line about not being the only one on the payroll and having to look out for each other made no sense. I feel like the point was to make it obvious that Frank had many people is his pocket. This point had already been made when the FBI guy was killed and didn't rat Leo out. At this point Frank being dead none of his informants were at risk, so the entire interaction seemed absurd.

    I thought it was a good movie but I didn't like it. I wouldn't really want to sit down and watch it again.

    Spoiler question:
    The dead cop in the marsh, was he really an undercover guy? Or just a scheme by the cops to cover for Leo?

    Saw it last night. Great movie!
    Not your typical Hollywood "everything works out" ending though so be prepared.
