Cyrus Berger Profile picture for Cyrus Berger

This is a really clever and interesting thriller. It's stylish and has some very exciting scenes. The flashbacks in the movie really go for strong emotion, and even though it can be a little cheesy at times, that approach also makes the movie very engaging throughout.

What are critics saying?


The Hollywood Reporter by

Driven by two great performances surrounded by solid supporting acts, Infernal Affairs is the rare testosterone movie that is also mature and thoughtful.


The New Yorker by Anthony Lane

The directors, Andrew Lau and Alan Mak, manage to convince us that we have witnessed an action movie, although in fact the quantity of violence is so minimal that, under Hong Kong law, Infernal Affairs barely qualifies as a motion picture.


Village Voice by Dennis Lim

Spins in place with aplomb, generating exponentially more vertiginous doublings with each sweaty-palmed set piece.


Variety by Derek Elley

Pic is superbly honed at both script and performance levels, with character taking precedence over action.
