CRITIQUE & REVIEW: "The Departed"

Go see Martin Scorsese's The Departed. It is an excellent movie and should score many Oscar nominations.

Look: 8
Story: 8
Acting: 9
Goal: 9
Intangibles: 9
Overall: 8.5

The above scores are based on a 10-point scale.
  • Look has to do with the visual artistry of the film.
  • Story rates the how compelling the film’s plot is.
  • Acting rates the overall performances of the actors.
  • Goal measures the success of the film at accomplishing its goal… does a comedy make you laugh, does a thriller cause goose bumps.
  • Intangibles score any special circumstances or accomplishments the movie deserves to be recognized for.
  • Overall rating is not an average of the other categories, just this reviewer’s impression of the entire work and how I would rate the film to a friend.
