The Departed 

3.5/4 stars

There's a certain "been there, done that" attitude about the somewhat standard gangster-driven plot of this genre pic, but the fantastic acting elevates the material. Jack Nicholson, particularly, disappears into his role as a swarmy Boston mob leader. The film is equally elevated by the skill of its director, who masterfully handles the pacing and tension of the complicated plot. The original film has its own interesting visual appeal, but this is probably a smarter and slicker remake that holds up in the canon of great Scorsese films.
