Product Description

Product Description

The award-winning crime thriller that inspired THE DEPARTED ... has been hailed by critics everywhere for its gritty action and international superstars. Chan Wing Yan (Tony Leung -- HERO) is a hard-nosed veteran cop sent undercover to infiltrate the notorious Triad crime ring. An expert at bringing down violent syndicates, Chan thinks it's going to be a routine mission. What he's not prepared for is the discovery that the Triad's boss (Eric Tsang -- THE ACCIDENTAL SPY) has planted a mole (Andy Lau -- THE LEGEND OF DRUNKEN MASTER) in the police department ... and now Chan is being hunted down. In this battle of wills, only one cop can win!

With Infernal Affairs, Hong Kong filmmakers Wai Keung Lau and Siu Fai Mak have successfully taken a smart script and a great cast, added some stylistic cinematography, and dual-fistedly given a new twist to a formulaic genre. Lau Kin Ming (Andy Lau), a young, loyal gangster, is ordered by his Triad boss Sam (Eric Tsang) to join the police force. While on the inside the young mole can keep a close eye on police activity, ensuring the gang's activities will not be interrupted. Police Superintendent Wong (Anthony Wong Chau-Sang) has a similar plan. He takes a bright, ambitious police cadet Yan (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) and makes him an undercover cop with plans to get him inside the Triads. Years pass and both are now deep into their assigned roles. Undercover cop Yan, more or less living the life of a gangster, is now a member of Boss Sam's group, and "Officer" Lau has all the appearance of a good cop trying to bust up the Triads' drug ring. During a bust that could finally bring down Boss Sam, the moles inadvertently become aware of each other's existence, and each is left wondering who is on the inside. What follows is a unique and exciting twist on the classic cat and mouse chase in which each man is not fighting for his life, but for his anonymity. In addition to its plot twists, what lifts Infernal Affairs above the standard cop story is its subtle exploration of the relative nature of good and evil. Part action, part psychological examination, Infernal Affairs is a sharp and fresh take on the classic crime story, and the inspiration for a 2006 Martin Scorsese remake (The Departed). Not to be missed. --Rob Bracco --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Brian Maitland TOP 500 REVIEWER on April 15 2009
Format: DVD
The story itself is brilliant with one mole in an Hong Kong Triad and another in the HK police force. The acting is first-rate and the shots of HK are grandiose (especially the rooftop scenes with that harbour in the background).

The extras are quite good (all in Cantonese w/ English subtitles as the movie is also) with a "making of" that gives us a greater appreciation for the actors. The behind the scenes extra is just raw sound and shots of the celebration banquet (wrap party) with one wild-looking Buddhist tradition involving a Buddhist priest who's a fireeater (just watch and you'll see what I'm talking about).

The cover is hilariously misleading as that hot chick is not really the focus of the story nor does she use a gun or pose that way in the movie. Still, if it'll sell the movie to Western audiences, I'm all for it as this is the type of cop/crime story the West never gets right and HK seems to because they understand both sides of the good/evil dichotomy better than most.

A triad thriller movie, that this is less about action scenes (and multiple-way gun shooting) and more about the story. The direction is superb and refreshing when compared to American standards for similar movies.

As mentioned by a previous reviewer, don't be mislead by the DVD cover. You will not find any cold hearted temptress in this movie. As a matter of fact, there isn't any significant female character. Not that it matters, and in the end it's still a very nice picture (oh, and a very good movie as well...).

My husband loves the Infernal Affairs series and I bought him this for father's day. This version was much cheaper than others I have seen. I like the departed better but don't tell him that!
