I understand why this movie received so many nominations for Academy Awards. It is a great movie for those that love the classic gangster/cop dramas but not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Very graphic and adult oriented violence. Movie is also long so be prepared to sit down for a while.
The Departed needs to be watched with NO children around. The profanity and vile language is almost enough to destroy the content of the entire story. More than 70% could have been deleted and the point still made. Acting was great, story very good, language terrible.
