All I got to say about this movie is that Leonardo DiCaprio can act his ass off. Seriously. He's unbelievable. Somebody get him a 'Best Actor' nod, pronto! And sorry, Marty, no best director this year. The only way Martin Scorsese will win an Oscar for that is if nothing really good comes out for the rest of the year.
As a narrative, it's solid. It's filled with twists and turns that'll keep you on your feet. And you are going to love the third act.
The acting is really the star of show. The cast includes: Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson, Mark Wahlberg, Alec Baldwin, and Anthony Anderson. And that's just off the top of my head.
It doesn't beat out Heat or Goodfellas. But nice. I'm going to watch it again if that says anything about how good it is. A-
