Glad you liked it Dingle. I thought it kept you on the edge of your seat most of the time. I think I"m going to get the soundtrack. I like how he mixed more eclectic music into the film instead of just his standard blues/jazz mix.

Great movie, Leo has really matured as a "A" grade actor. BTW Internal Affairs is a Hong Kong movie, I had to rent it after seeing Departed. 8)

i absolutely loved the movie too. it was every bit as worthy as of all the praise it had been receiving. but i'm going to ask a question that may not be too popular...didn't jack nicholson just suck in this? his hair looked like mine after a scarry weekend bender. he was out acted by everyone else in the movie. loved the flick, two thumbs up, but jack, sorry dude. thunb waaaay down

Jack has the same problem as DeNiro at this stage of their game. Everyone looks at them like they are Rich Little doing and impression.

This was truly one of the best films I can say that I've seen over the last 5 years.
top10 for sure, maybe top5.
