Great movie!

Infernal Affairs is The Departed, without the fat (a 101 minute running time, versus a 152 minute running time) and the ham (Jack Nicholson; Leo "Shouty" DiCaprio). Tony Leung and Andy Lau provide just the right amount of character in this tense noir.

Terrible flic- incomprehensible plot with lots of squibs- don't waste your time.

As slick and stylish as they come, this fast-paced Hong Kong policier practically flies by in a jagged blur of bullets, double crosses, and three-piece suits all lensed by the legendary Christopher Doyle who transforms Hong Kong into a rat’s maze of neon streets and smoggy skies reflected in pristine glass skyscrapers. Not content to simply squeeze out another Chinese gangster flick, writers Alan Mak and Felix Chong delve beneath the surface of their protagonists to examine what happens to a man’s psyche when he is forced to act against his nature for years at a time—the prickly conscience, the loss of identity, and the existential crises which arise when one is faced with yet another line to cross. Finally, a series of deeply ironic twists elevate an already masterful story into the realm of parable as Max and Chong question the nature of morality—a challenge answered in part by a pair of sobering Buddhist quotes which bookend the film.

Just like the Hollywood remake of this movie,i was so bored it didn't really matter to me anymore about the slick outcome before the credits rolled up.

Crime story that was so good it was remade in english as "The Departed." Lots of distinctiveness and great acting by Leung and Lau. I could never figure out what the girl on the cover of the DVD represented.

After watching this, I have lost respect for Martin Scorsese's The Departed (which used to be one of my faves). Totally enjoyed Lau & Cheung a lot more than Damon & DiCaprio as well as Wong over Sheen. Getting set to watch part 2!

Lau Kin Ming: Do all undercover cops like rooftops?
