My wife and I watched The Departed this weekend. I thought it was a great movie trying to stay with the game of cat and mouse. My wife on the other hand went back to removing wallpaper, literally. She is not a big fan of having to follow movies closely so it's not her piece of cake. I on the other hand love the movies that require some thought and I found this to be a good one. I heard some compare it with Goodfellas but it is not up to par with the classic. If you like Scorsese then you will be happy with the film.
