I am not a big fan of gangster movies although I can always tolerate all the shooting, stabbing, Padron cigars puffing, drug abuse, pointless killings, and other violent and gory stuff that they usually offer. I think I have watched over 10 of them and so far here are my three best gangster movie picks.
The Departed. Leonardo DiCaprio is the undercover cop doubling as a mafia criminal and Matt Damon is the undercover criminal who has infiltrated the police department. Both try to hide their double identities while trying to prove their loyalties both to the authorities and to the syndicate head which is played by one of my fave actors – Jack Nicholson.
