I find it astoundingly annoying that the two opposing protagonists look, sound and act so alike. It's hard to keep track of the two of them.

Sullivan: The list seems heavily biased towards putting Sullivan as the villain right alongside Costello. Personally, I found Sullivan to be a very sympathetic "villain", while Costigan was a more unsympathetic "hero". The movie isn't about either one of them as much as it is the both of them.

Aside from Smug Smake nothing really paints Sullivan as being all that villainous.

The Smug Snake and the fact that he betrayed every person in the film, whereas Costigan gets bullied into a terrible, dangerous job that ruins his life and forces him to do terrible things. I can't see how Costigan is less sympathetic than Sullivan who I despised more than any other character in any film I can remember
