KBT Presents: Infernal Affairs (take two!)


OK, we are going to try this again, with a brand new engine driving the theatre:
They just don't make very many good Cop Thrillers in Hollywood anymore. The last memorable one was Insomnia and even it was inferior to the Original European Version. Fortunately, they can still turn out good ones in Hong Kong. Infernal Affairs has the brooding feel of a John Woo style Bullet Ballet, the stylistic excess of Tony Scott and the macho profesionalism of Michael Mann.It stars two of the biggest names in HK Cinema, Andy Lau (House of Flying Daggers) and Tony Leung (Hero). It is a complex game of cat and mouse where the both men think they are the cat. Leung is a undercover policeman who has a position high up in the mob. Lau is an undercover mobster high up in Internal Affairs. Each is informed enough to know that there is a mole in their midst. Who will figure out whom first? Check out Rotten Tomatoes for the 96% (at the moment) rating on this film. It has already turned out 2 (supposedly inferior, I haven't seen them) sequels in China. There is an American Remake (to be directed by Martin Scorcese!?!!??!) already underway. See the original first. The screening will be started at approximately 8:30pm Tuesday Night.

I just want to say that your blog is extremely helpful to me. I don't have a lot of time to go research movies and I hate wasting my time watching crap. So thanks, and keep it going.
