â€śInfernal Affairs signals a new era of Hong Kong filmmaking.â€ťâ€“Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times
A blockbuster in Asia and later the source for Martin Scorseseâ€™s OscarÂ®-winning The Departed, Infernal Affairs traded the high-octane ballistics of earlier Hong Kong films for a cooler, crisper style and plot twists that keep you guessing until the very end. Recruited by the triads as a teenager, Ming (Andy Lau) is a mole working in the police departmentâ€™s Criminal Intelligence Bureau. After being thrown out of the police academy, Yan (Tony Leung) moves into the criminal underworld while secretly working for the police. These two double agents are on a collision course that will leave only one man standing. Visually stunningâ€”ace cinematographer Christopher Doyle served as visual consultant -â€“ the film brilliantly captures the rituals and hierarchies that define life in the mob or in the police.
