Martin Scorsese police drama set in Boston. Matt Damon plays a criminal placed in the Massachusetts State Police; Leonardo DiCraprio plays a Massachusetts State policeman placed undercover in the same organized crime gang headed by the wise-cracking Jack Nicholson. Which rat will be sniffed out first?
Reasonable viewing. Its tone is lightened by a number of good one-liners. Mark Wahlberg is amusing as a no-bull senior detective, the sidekick of Alec Baldwin.
Nugget: gets bloody.
