Even with the routine "cops and robbers" theme, the performances were what made the movie. Joaquin Phoenix, Mark Wahlberg and Robert Duvall play their roles with tremedous heart making the movie come to life and keeping you on the edge of your seat wanting more. Based on local reviews, I was waiting for the movie to drop at a certain point, but it never did. Not disappointing at all. Good from start to finish. Worth a shot..

I watched this in a sneak preview last night. All actors involved put on a great performance. The storyline is actually interesting to follow along with. I got a sense of hesitant nervous energy throughout the movie like something phenomenal was going to happen at any moment, but it was subdued to a certain extent, leaving you waiting and wanting more. Expect the unexpected. And personally, the gratuitous scene at the beginning of the film was unneccessary. (yes, you get a shot of Eva's breast).
All in all a good movie to watch, but don't climb all over anyone to get there. And be patient when watching. It'll make the ride go smoother.

Definetly not, “The Departed”. Decent performances from the actors, but the script just isn’t that good.

Was good, but the movie needed a bigger part for Mark Wahlberg to make it better.
