4.5 Undercover in Boston RJNeb2 | 14/04/2013 | See all RJNeb2's reviews (684) Boston crimelord Frank Costello has one of his proteges embedded in the police department as a mole. What he doesn't realise is that his new right hand man is a mole from the police department, and soon enough the noose starts to tighten as both bodies realise that they've been infiltrated. A typically bold remake of the Hong Kong thriller "Infernal Affairs" from a director clearly buzzing on just letting rip, "The Departed" is a grisly and intense study of betrayal. It offers Nicholson the chance to grandstand like mad - he's undeniably entertaining doing so - but his younger co-stars are right up there with him. Although maybe not as potent as "GoodFellas", it's still great to see Scorsese so surefooted in the milieu he's made his own.
