Such convenient coincidences might sink a lesser film, but The Departed is so electrifying that you barely notice the plot-holes. And while Nicholson's profane swagger is too much "Jack" and not enough "Costello," he's still a joy to watch, especially in a film that's additionally energized by memorable (and frequently hilarious) supporting roles for Alec Baldwin, Mark Wahlberg, and a host of other big-name performers. The Departed also makes clever and plot-dependent use of cell-phones, to the extent that it couldn't exist without them. Powered by Scorsese's trademark use of well-chosen soundtrack songs (from vintage rock to Puccini's operas), The Departed may not be perfect, but it's one helluva ride for moviegoers, proving popular enough to become the biggest box-office hit of Scorsese's commercially rocky career. --Jeff Shannon

This is a well done film on the Mafia with Great acting by all the actors and a very good story .
The only people that wouldn't like this don't like good movies. Sure is a little violent but the story is incredible.Published 1 day ago by J Pine

|Same content as single version DVD or the two-disc collectors?||
The single disc edition contains just the movie. The 2 disc version has deleted scenes, a couple shorts on mob life, and some other stuff. So if you want extras, it's the 2-disc version for you.

|Why do they keep bringing out Combo HD DVD/Standard DVDs?||
Yeah, I agree it is stupid. Since they sell for about $30+ in stores, I just get on here and you can usually find someone selling them new for about $20.

|What's the difference between this version and the one from 2007?||
From what I can tell the one from 2010 is a few dollars more. I don't know why though.

|What is missing...||
It's actually only about $7 more than the normal widescreen edition so I would have to say that the picture and sound benefits of blu ray outweigh your concerns. I just received the blu ray version from amazon yesterday and it blew me away.

I've pre-ordered CDs and DVDs before from Amazon and usually got them on the day of release. There were a few instances of not getting them until the next day, but usually same day as release.
DO NOT pre-order video games from Amazon, you'll see them 2 weeks later, if you're lucky enough.
