Default The Departed *Spoiler*

When I first got this movie I thought it was pretty good. It was definitely worth the money, but I couldn't see myself watching it again. Today I watched it for the second time and I understood it a lot more, now it is one of my favorite movies and Goodfellas is on sale for 14.99 so I might just get that too. My question is did the girl open the package and is that the reason why Dignam was in Sullivan's house at the end and shot him?

I suggest you to watch the original HK version called Infernal Affairs. Its a much better movie and its a actual trilogy and explain more.

Yes, we are led to assume that the girl opened the package, which probably contained instructions to tell notably, Dignam.

Probably the thing I rather enjoyed the most was the fact that Matt Damon was alluded as NOT the father of the baby, rather it was Leo, since Matt Damon was assumed to be well um..impotent.

I completely got that she opened the package and that is why Dignam was there to shoot Sullivan but I completely missed that Costigan would be the father of her baby.

Different than. You cannot really compare the two.

I didn't even think that the baby was Costigan's. Just one question, how do we know Sullivan is impotent? I haven't seen Goodfellas either but it seems like another crime movie by Martin Scorsese so I think it's gonna be very good.

Goodfellas is another movie which should be recalled and replaced with an exchange program : around the 1h20 mark, there's a huge line scratch appearing from top to bottom in the middle of the image, while DeNiro talks. I find this unacceptable on HD, especially as the rest of the movie looks OK (but I have a feeling it's mastered from an interneg, the image moves up and down the whole movie, it's especially clear on the credits or where a title card appear). WTF ?!
