R | | Crime, Drama, Thriller
An undercover cop and a mole in the police attempt to identify each other while infiltrating an Irish gang in South Boston.
Leonardo DiCaprio gained fifteen pounds of muscle for his role as Billy Costigan.
You got a nice suit at home or do you like coming to work everyday dressed like you're goin' to invade Poland?
When Costigan is riding the "T" (Boston subway), he is talking to Queenan on a cell phone. However, they are on the "Red" line, which is obvious because of the red walls in the tunnel. Cell phones don't work on the Red line because it is underground and there are no cell phone routers in those tunnels.
The title doesn't appear on screen until nearly 20 minutes into the movie.
