Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 10/13/2006
"THE DEPARTED is splattered with moments of pure, dead-eyed, blood-soaked Scorsesean violence....Nicholson provides a menace that's half silky, half seedy." -- Grade: A-
Total Film - 11/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "DiCaprio fully justifies his place as Marty's new muse....[He delivers] THE DEPARTED's most dangerous turn."
New York Times - 10/06/2006
"The speed and Mr. Scorsese's sureness of touch, particularly when it comes to carving up space with the camera, keep the plot's hall of mirrors from becoming a distraction."
Rolling Stone - 10/19/2006
4 stars out of 4 -- "The actors bring their A games to this triumphant bruiser of a film, its darkly wanton wit the only defense against complete chaos."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2006
"[A] juicy and enjoyable gangster picture. It has generous salty humour, tremendous narrative drive, an absorbingly complex plot of multiple betrayal, and a roster of entertaining actors."
Box Office - 12/01/2006
"Martin Scorsese here succeeds in creating a bleak picture with a fatalistic Irish sensibility."
Premiere - 01/01/2007
Included in Premiere's "10 Best Movies Of The Year" -- "[With] enough bravura acting for a dozen such pictures..."
Rolling Stone - 12/28/2006
Ranked #1 in Rolling Stone's "The 10 Best Movies Of 2006" -- "[A] model of what directing is when craft rises to the level of art."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/29/2006
Included in Entertainment Weekly's "Top 10 Films Of The Year" -- "Scorsese's got the best of men at the tops of their games. THE DEPARTED is this year's meatiest movie diversion."
Film Comment - 01/01/2007
Ranked #1 in Film Comment's "20 Best Films Of 2006."
Film Comment - 01/01/2007
"[T]his 'gangster movie' feels like a direct emanation from a society in a state of severe moral disorientation....THE DEPARTED reminds us that if there's truly an enemy, it's within."
USA Today - 02/16/2007
4 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t's a rare treat for moviegoers to see six major actors, all in strong roles, together in one movie."
Ultimate DVD - 03/01/2007
5 stars out of 5 -- "DiCaprio stands tall, even when sharing the screen with Nicholson....THE DEPARTED is his master class..."
Ultimate DVD - 07/01/2007
5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith Nicholson and DiCaprio together on screen for the first time, a performance masterclass is assured."
Wall Street Journal - 09/17/2010
"THE DEPARTED has become a classic in its own right, thanks in no small measure to William Monahan's script..."
