Very disapointed by this Blu Ray, the movie is excellent , quality of picture and sound is great but it is not worth more than a good DVD edition... no extra menu, not extra feature and no extra languages or subtitles, only english... pity looking at the storage available on a blu ray and looking at the same movie, in blu ray , different edition with french and spanish dubbing included
Great film. Had it on DVD and thought that it was worth a try for £9.99 on Blu Ray. Was really impressed with the picture quality (and having been disappointed with American Gangster picture quality, it's not guaranteed on Blu Ray). The DTS HD soundtrack is another bonus. Far better than the Dolby 5.1 on the DVD. So I am sure you have seen and liked this film. Now buy it on Blu Ray and enjoy it again. Matt Damon and Leo Di Caprio on top, top form.
Sorry to ruin it for most of you but this film is another hollywood remake. Therefore isn't the original masterpiece that all that hollywood hype made many believe.
The original "infernal affairs" starred tony leung was released in 2002 and was followed by a prequel "infernal affairs 2" and a sequel "infernal affairs 3" both released in 2003.
Having seen all 3 films first, i was interested to see how scorsese would handle it... And to be honest i was disappointed.
I was hoping that the film would take the storyline to a new level, similar to reservoir dogs and city on fire. However this wasn't the case.
The acting wasn't great, and some critical scenes were slightly rushed.
My advice to anyone who has seen this film is to watch the infernal affairs trilogy, and if you haven't,,, watch both as the departed is worth watching.
I saw this film on dvd a few months ago on dvd but when I got a HD tv I bought the blu-ray version.
The first time I saw the film it immediately became one of my favourite films. I use my PS3 to watch blu-rays and I was amazed by the quality of the film. Watching it a second time was excellent
I would highly reccomend anyone to watch get this film on blu-ray, whether or whether not you have seen it before
