In South Boston, the state police force is waging war on Irish-American organized crime. Young undercover cop Billy Costigan is assigned to infiltrate the mob syndicate run by gangland chief Frank Costello. While Billy quickly gains Costello's confidence, Colin Sullivan, a hardened young criminal who has infiltrated the state police as an informer for the syndicate is rising to a position of power in the Special Investigation Unit. Each man becomes deeply consumed by their double lives, gathering information about the plans and counter-plans of the operations they have penetrated. But when it becomes clear to both the mob and the police that there is a mole in their midst, Billy and Colin are suddenly in danger of being caught and exposed to the enemy - and each must race to uncover the identity of the other man in time to save themselves.

(at around 15 mins) When Costigan is talking to his uncle while his mother is dying in the hospital, a fire extinguisher is on the wall in the hospital hallway. When the scene cuts to the uncle and back to Costigan, the fire extinguisher is gone, but the hook is still visible. See more »
Get you? Give you? Who the fuck do you work for? What?
All right, all right. Frank, Frank, Frank, I'm sorry, Frank. If you could, please.

If you can just get me that information, what I can do is I can just - I - I - we're gonna handle it. I - I - I can handle it.
Colin, calm down, or you'll shoot in your pants.
I'll get you the records and what not. But listen to me, son. ...

I was excited to see the movie because of the cast and the story. I was very disappointed after 5th minute because it is the same exact copy of the movie INFERNAL AFFAIRS '. The scenes, the story, everything is the same. I would understand if they used the story as a base and made a movie out of it but I will not accept it if the only thing they changed is the cast. I cannot make a good comment of the movie because it definitely is not a movie of it's own. There is no excitement of watching the movie because I know what would happen on every scene. I will give my vote to the actors only because their performance ( especially Leonardo Di Caprio )was very good but that's all.
