YesAsia Editorial Description

Carried by four superstars of the silver screen and winning a cascade of film awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actor at the Hong Kong Film Awards, Infernal Affairs turned into an exceptional box office blockbuster that re-wrote Hong Kong's movie history! The film spawned two equally popular sequels, and even the Martin Scorsese-directed Hollywood remake The Departed by Martin Scorsese Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon.

The hyper thrilling police-triad undercover story co-directed by Andrew Lau (Young and Dangerous, Storm Riders) and Alan Mak (A War Named Desire) uses the duel betweem opposing moles in the police and the triad as theme, but does not draw on the traditional formula of flying stunts and big budget explosions; yet it succeeds in keeping eyes pinned to the screen from start to finish, even after continuous viewings!

Leading actors Andy Lau and Tony Leung Chiu Wai can be seen in their probably strongest performances to date - one working as a mole in the police department, while the other works as an undercover cop surrounded by deadly triad crooks. They are skillfully backed up by veteran Hong Kong film stars Eric Tsang and Anthony Wong who portray a cunning triad boss and a cool CIB police sergeant, respectively. Also featuring Asian superstars Sammi Cheng, Kelly Chen, Elva Hsiao, Edison Chen, and Shawn Yue in supporting roles Infernal Affairs offers viewers nail-biting suspense from the first minute to the last!

Professional Review of "Infernal Affairs (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)"

March 10, 2008

This professional review refers to Infernal Affairs (3 VCDs Deluxe Edition) (Hong Kong Version)

Infernal Affairs was the box office champion in Hong Kong in 2002. Although it was unable to break the record of 2001's Shaolin Soccer, the response was still unanimously positive. Both the audience and the movie critics enjoyed this movie a lot. If you only watch one Hong Kong movie a year, Infernal Affairs is definitely the first choice!

First off, I would like to clear some confusion. The title of this movie is NOT InTernal Affairs but InFernal Affairs. The word "infernal" is actually a gimmick that has special meaning. It implies a Buddhist term that refers to a hellish place roughly known as "infernal hell". People that are trapped in this "infernal hell" have to suffer from endless tortue of combustion. It parallels to the situation the two characters are entangled in. Their identities are kept secret and they have to live in the dark and suffer from great pressures every day. Therefore, the title Infernal Affairs is not a typo, it is rather a careful and creative decision.

The script of this movie is very well calculated and composed. It successfully depicts the witty plots of the two antagonists. Unlike most Hong Kong detective thrillers that always contain highly exaggerated plots, the story of this movie is quite realistic. As a matter of fact, the gun fight scenes are much fewer than I expected, it is more about the mind games and the psychological conflict of the characters. This profound examination of human nature makes it an adult movie. By adult I mean the mature perspective of the script writer. In short, the film features a very intense drama and distinguishes itself from those typical no brainer action adventure flicks. Please give a round applause to scriptwriter and director Alan Mak!

The cinematography is top notch. Merely the opening credit already gives you a feeling that this is not another mediocre Hong Kong production. With the use of the 2.35:1 widescreen format, the compositions are vivid and highly sophisticated, cold color like the black outfits of the characters or the gloomy background is used frequently to enhance the pessimistic atmosphere entrapping the characters. Experienced cinematographer Andrew Lau (who is also one of the directors of this movie) and Christopher Doyle should be acknowledged for their hard works.

Thanks to the brilliant script, almost every male character in the movie stands out distinctly. The two male leads Andy Lau and Tony Leung are both impressive. Tony Leung has played a similar role in The Longest Nite before, even the appearance of the character looks alike, so in terms of freshness and the exploitation of the character, I would say Andy Lau is the real focus of the movie. Supporting actors like Eric Tsang, Anthony Wong and Chapman To play out their parts appropriately. The weakest link is probably the three female characters. Apparently, the addition of these characters are mainly based on commercial decision. They don't seem to function very well in the story, especially Kelly Chen, her role needs serious enhancement. Sammi Cheng's novel writing parallels to Andy Lau's situation perfectly, but this sub plot is just presented so plain and lackluster that makes it look awkward.

The accomplishment of Infernal Affairs is not only the effort of the director, scriptwriter and the cast, what should not be ignored is the mutual effort of the entire crew. From the cinematography to the lighting, from Andy Lau to a minor actor, everyone is just so involved. It is this level or professionalism that marks the success of this movie.

Disappointed Blueray Transfer Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The story line is very good. Since everybody know the story I"m not gonna talk about. I'm just want to add my two cents on the Blueray Trilogy. I've recently purchased the Trilogy set and start watching it. I found out all three movies was blur on some scenes. It's not actually HD quality. It's more like DVD quality.
The sound quality is much better with 5.1 on the first movie and 6.1 on other two movies. So for people who want HD quality on the trilogy set will be very disappointed.

Predictable yet thrilling Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
The plot was great & it was easily understandable whether it was by predictablility or the effective story telling. Unfortunately you are left with knowing the audience had only a mere glimpse of the possible depth of the character themselves. Regardless, kudos to the powerhouse actors who portrayed & expressed their complexity effectively. This version allows you to view the alternate ending in the special features. There is the subtle & blatant difference that also deserves a head-nod.

Taut and suspenseful thriller Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Tony Leung, Andy Lau and Eric Tsang all are at the top of their game in this intricate, edge-of-your-seat tale of undercover cops and robbers. My only gripe is that the characters played by Kelly Chen, Sammi Cheung, and Elva Hsiao are given too little screen time; their characters are too thin to have any real life. They exist just to develop some of the backstory for the lead characters. However, this is a minor quibble. "Infernal Affairs" is a state-of-the-art thriller and I highly recommend it.

One of the best HK movies Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I enjoyed the whole film. Action filled. Andy Lau is really great. You should watch this. Even the younger Andy and younger Tony played their roles pretty well. You should watch out for the prequel. They are real great.
