This AMV trailer is for "The Departed" starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Whalberg.
Well it seemed like a novel idea in my opinion. There are plenty of AMV trailers from eye-candy blockbusters, but very few with crime dramas anymore. Besides, many people consider this movie to be one of Martin Scorsese's best.
Strange enough, I decided not to use Cowboy Bebop which could be a good choice but an obvious one at that. It was a couple of months ago that I thought that maybe Outlaw Star would work in the character selection. As I began to think more and more about it this idea fell almost perfectly into place, and luckily the trailer's titles fit in nicely.
I'll admit that this isn't my best AMV, mostly because the lip syncing wasn't the best (I might go back and fix it up a little), but in essense I believe it came out pretty well.
