The Departed (2006)
While I appreciate that the film stayed true to the original in most respects, it was too much of a carbon copy. I mean the only things they bothered to change was the setting, language and cast; everything else was so predictable that I left the theater. They should have just called the movie "Infernal Affairs", after all its not like they changed much of anything.
I suppose I should've researched the movie before going, but I figured .... "Hmmm.... The Departed looks interesting" and at first it was, but then I noticed I was able to predict the scenes. When they got to the "personal info"(envelope) scene, thats when I knew it was a copy.
I'll admit it was a good movie and anyone seeing it for the first time will truly enjoy it, but if you've already seen "Infernal Affairs" don't bother ...... its just an americanized version of the original.
Changes made: Hong Kong = Boston Triads = Irish Mafia Chinese(subtitled) = English Asian Cast = American Cast
