  • A new American crime classic from the legendary Martin Scorsese, whose talent shines here on its highest beams. show more

  • There's no attempt at greatness here, just a fabulously successful attempt at a good crime movie. The Oscar-bait self-consciousness of "Gangs of New York" and "The Aviator" is gone. In its place is a buoyancy, an impish delight in telling a harsh urban story in the most effective terms possible. show more

  • The screenplay, by William Monahan, is simply sensational. Scenes play brilliantly. Feelings flow like molten lava. The dialogue overflows with edgy wit and acidulous arias of imprecation. show more

    this is deffinatly martin scorsese on the top of his game and is the perfect movie. it is star studded, each charecter gives an amazing performce, especially whalberg and nicholson. scorsese also shocks and awes the audience with the unexpected scenes and intensity. thelma schoonmakers editing makes every scene unforgettable. and monohans screenplay, though based off internal affiars is still an orginal american piece of art. one of the best films ever made
