Yes indeed! The Departed was awesome.
[WARNING]I’m going to assume that if you’re reading this thread you’ve already seen the movie. If you haven’t, skip the rest of this post. Spoilers below. [WARNING]
With that said, I was literally on the edge of my seat with my jaw open for the entire last half of the movie!
First, they throw Martin Sheen’s character, the police captain, off the roof! No friggin’ way! You…you can’t…you can’t just kill Martin Sheen, not to mention a police captain?!
Second, Sheen’s corpse lands right at DiCaprio’s feet! Holy crap!
Third, I literally yelled in the theater when DiCaprio gets shot on the elevator. They just shot the main character! In the face! I was not expecting that.
Fourth, I think Scorsese set the record for the most consecutive headshots in a single scene at the abandoned building/elevator scene.
Finally, could the ending have been more poetic?
Man, that was a great movie.
