Infernal Affairs: A great "crime-drama-thriller"

  • Sep 14, 2010

One of the best police thrillers I've seen in life! A duel between two moles and their respective boss who is an intense game of cat and mouse with multiple twists.

I came across this movie completely by accident one evening when I planned to sleep early: I've been glued to my TV, completely fascinated! The actors were excellent, it is only later that I learned that it was an all-star distribution.

Forget the remake that Scorsese did in 2006 (The Departed): Although I am a fan of Scorsese, I had the impression that he had completely missed the American adaptation of the film.

Subtlety, intelligence and a lot of turnarounds. I highly recommend it to all my friends who are not afraid of foreign films!

Shows you how American studios disrespect Asian cinema and its fans before; …

This film is the epitome of Hong Kong crime thrillers that it also inspired Martin Scorsese's THE DEPARTED.

"Infernal Affairs" is one fascinating movie with a great premise. This has been a reasonably popular movie that had generated huge buzz when it came out, and since been talked, compared and still highly regarded as unsurpassed by countless fans worldwide. The woman holding the gun on the jacket of DVD really doesn't fit the portrayal of this movie because there's not one female actress firing one, probably a marketing gimmick.    The plot to this movie is simple and strong but …
