#248 - Mou gaan dou (Infernal Affairs)

Breakdown: Infernal Affairs (2002, Hong Kong). Written by Alan Mak and Felix Chong. Directed by Wai-keung Lau and Alan Mak. Starring Andy Lau, Tony Leung.

A story between a mole in the police department and an undercover cop. Their objectives are the same: to find out who is the mole, and who is the cop.

Review: If you've seen The Departed, you've seen Infernal Affairs...almost literally. The Departed is the American remake of Infernal Affairs. The biggest difference between the two (other than Leonardo DiCaprio not speaking Cantonese) is pace. Infernal Affairs is almost a full hour shorter than its successor. The biggest similarity? They both kick ass.

Favorite Quote:
Wong: Let me tell you a story. Two men need an organ transplant, but there's only one organ. So they play a game. They each put a card in their pocket. Whoever can guess the other's card wins the organ.
Sam: You know I can see your card.
Wong: I see yours as well.
