Martin Scorsese United States, 2006

Palmat's rating of the film The Departed

A dull and uninteresting movie. Sure there is a stellar cast but the whole lot chew the scenery to the point of ridicule. Only Leo comes off as a solid actor actually trying to portray a believable character. I feel sorry for Scorsese that it was for this movie he got the Oscar nod since it is messy, poorly paced and completely below the level he usually works on.
