Rating Summary
It is intriguing to wonder what Scorsese saw in the Hong Kong movie that inspired him to make the second remake of his career (after "Cape Fear"). I think he instantly recognized that this story, at a buried level, brought two sides of his art and psyche into equal focus. We know that he, too, was fascinated by gangsters. In making so many films about them, about what he saw and knew growing up in Little Italy, about his insights into their natures, he became, in a way, an informant.

In Boston an undercover cop (Leonardo DiCaprio) gains a gangland chief’s (Jack Nicholson) trust, while a career criminal (Matt Damon) infiltrates the police force for the mob.
