Now that is a badass movie. Just saw it for the first time, definetly have to watch again, one of those "you dont pick up everything the first time, impossible".

One thing that confused me was the closing scene. How does Marky Mark know that Damon was the rat? Did the girlfriend turn the tapes in? It was sad to see Leo get killed, something I thought I might never say after Titanic.

If I remember right, Leo comes in after M Sheen gets popped and Leo notices an item on Matt's desk that only the mole would have.

I saw the part when the "citizens" envelope was seen...but Mark Walhberg's character, at the end, is inside Damons apartment...how did he know? The only other one who knew was the girlfriend.

It's been awhile since I viewed this one so I'm having trouble remembering exactly what you speak of re: the Wahlberg/Damon characters but I do remember really enjoying the movie.

Ditto for me too...great flick!

Three other recent movies I REALLY liked are:

"No Country For Old Men" - Great movie I thought! Did anyone notice there is no music or any type of soundtrack what so ever in the whole movie?

I Also really liked "American Gangster" and "Michael Clayton" as well. Anyone else like these other 3 as much as I did?

Ya know Eddie, now that you mention the "no music/soundtrack" in No Country For Old Men, I get what I couldn't place while watching it. My kids loved it - I found it very slow (I had also watched it on a Sunday evening after a long weekend), and kept falling asleep - my girls keep telling me I need to re-watch it. Regarding Michael Clayton - I need to watch that one all the way through - have only caught bits and pieces.

What d ya'll think about We Own The Night - Now THAT was another kick arse flick!

I've seen it twice, a couple of months apart. I liked the movie, but I didn't really "study" it, so my memories and/or insights might not be as sharp as those of others.

I didn't really give Whalberg's knowledge of Damon's activities much thought . . . remember the cop earlier in the film that helped out Damon? What did he say, "What, did you think you were the only guy he had inside?"

I figured Whalberg knew about Damon the whole time, and was cleaning up a loose end on Jack's behalf. The problem with that, though, is that if Whalberg was also Jack's man, then why didn't he rat out DiCaprio himself?

Maybe he had his own agenda . . . maybe he wanted Jack to fall, and taking Damon out at the end was part of the plan to advance his own agenda . . . Plus, if Jack was giving up people to the Feds, perhaps Wahlberg wanted to make sure ALL of those roads were closed.

Just a couple of ideas.

I always assumed that Leo sent the tapes to Marky Mark.

TopDroog/Sang....Great points, Im leaning toward Leo sending the tapes out, or just told Marky about Damon, but was not in the filming.

I think Marky knew something was up with Matt. Right after the Capt got killed
the two had a dust up and Marky quit. Marky knew there was a rat in the dept
and I presumed he put two and two together, especially after everyone bought
it at the elevator, except for Matt. Also, Marky was watching Matt during the
failed stakeout with the Chinese. So he knew something was up somewhere.

My theory

Leo has his girlfried mail Marky Mark the goods on Damon or he does it himself right before he leaves to bring him in.

That was one of my favorite parts of the movie. After competing with and hating eachother through the whole movie, Leo knows that Marky Mark will get Damon if he doesn't make it.

no music in no country, wow, hadn't noticed that, i've watched it about 5 time in the last 2 weeks.

one thing i just picked up on, is that through out the whole movie, Lewellen Moss was extremely careful in what he did. each move was pretty well though out.

there is one little scene that might have shown what led to his downfall.

"beer leads to more beer", that last little look that he gave that woman at the pool. He was pretty much brushing her off for the whole conversation, except for that last look up at her.





beer leads to more beer. such words of wisdom.

That's right. He did leave a note for her to do something with the tapes in so many weeks if he is
offed or something. Makes sense now

Thanks

2 bits of information to add:

In The Departed. When the girl friend opens the CD's that Dicaprio sent her, in true Martin Scorsesee style, the CD cover is Exile on Main Street. Can anyone confirm. I'm pretty sure I saw it last time I watched it but I don't have it on DVD.

The girl by the pool in NCFOM had a much bigger role in the book. I'm surprised they kept the same ending as the book. I didn't think they'd let it end like that. I loved it but people in the theatre with me were like WTF...

The Departed was great but I prefer the original Infernal Affairs from Hong Kong which Scorsese actually copied pretty much scene for scene.

Liked all three myself Eddie, a lot of folks really didn't like "old men" but I thought it was great. Been watching American Gangster a lot on hbo/sinamax recently. Really enjoyed Michael Clayton as well.

This was a great movie with a very deep cast. You know the cast is deep when you can throw Martin Sheen of the roof of a building before the movie is close to being over, never mind all the others who were offed.
