Product Description

(Action/Foreign) Directed by Wai Keung Lai and Siu Fai Mak, IA 2 is the prequel and IA 3 is the sequel to the highly successful original Infernal Affairs, the movie on which Martin Scorcese based his recent hit, The Departed, on. In Infernal Affairs 2, Yan is assigned to be an undercover cop in the the triads while Mings joins the police force.

Amazon.com

As every Asian action devotee will tell you, Infernal Affairs 2 is not a sequel but a prequel to Hong Kong directors Wai Keung Lau and Siu Fai Mak's Infernal Affairs (2002), which served as the inspiration for Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning The Departed. Gone are original stars Andy Lau as Lau (the Matt Damon character from The Departed) and Tony Leung as Chan (Leonardo DiCaprio's counterpart); pop star Edison Chan and Shawn Yue, respectively, play younger versions of the two leads as they begin their careers as a Triad member feeding police information to mobster Hon Sam (Eric Tsang, reprising his role from the first film) and a mole infiltrating Sam's organization. A side plot involves the son (Francis Ng) of a murdered Triad leader who causes trouble for all three characters. As with the original film, the violence and bulletplay is both operatic and frantic, and the truths, half-truths, and false identities labyrinthine in their complexities; viewers are advised to watch the first Infernal Affairs before tucking into this disc, unless they wish to be hopelessly confused. The Special Edition DVD includes seven deleted scenes, somewhat dull commentary by Anthony Wong (Inspector Wong, on whom Martin Sheen's role was based), Mak, and Tsang), a 20-minute making-of featurette that includes interviews with much of the cast and production team, and a "Confidential File" that sets more behind-the-scenes footage to music. The trailer and teaser spot round out the extras. -- Paul Gaita

Format: DVD
Infernal Affairs II is one prequel you definitely shouldn't see before the original - so much of the interest comes from spotting throwaway details that assume more importance in the original film, and the character revelations are far more fascinating if you've seen the original. Take the opening monologue: standard enough - until you see who it is that Inspector Wong is opening up to: what we know about their eventual fates and the implications it has about their relationship is far more intriguing than if you choose this outing as your starting point.

With no Andy Lau or Tony Leung this time round, their younger selves played by the lacklustre Shawn Yue and Edison Chen are sidelined in favor of their superiors. It's a wise decision: Tsang and Francis Ng are superb, although curiously Anthony Wong isn't as good as in the original in a more expansive and more morally compromised role. The first half hour is awkward, but the deferred violence following the death of the local triad boss is well handled and the film fires into life with some genuinely great filmmaking once the consequences start catching up with the various characters.

The influence here is clearly the Godfather films, but whereas Godfather II was ultimately just a typical sequel exercise in underlining and escalation, this back story really does add layers to the original, with Eric Tsang becoming a genuinely tragic figure in his final scene. Where Godfather II tended to use history merely as a backdrop, here the handover of Hong Kong becomes an integral part of the film.

Format: DVD
I have read the two review posted so far, and I think that the writers have missed some of the greatness of this film. To be fair, the reviewers rightly picked up on the homage to the Godfather films, but this picture is its own creation. I have never seen a better cast do a better job with complex characters and interpersonal nuance. I watched the film Sunday night, then, on vacation, after breakfast on Monday, and that night with the commentary. The commentary is great in its own right because it focuses on the cast and the effort to interpret and present the complexities between characters. Inevitably, we who do not know Chinese and need subtitles must miss a great deal, but this film is a masterpiece.

Excellent movie! The film is much more polished than its predecessor and was a joy to watch. The character development was mindblowing. The subtitles are also extremely well done.

By Desertman84 on September 9, 2014
Format: DVD
Infernal Affairs II is a great movie about the youth of Inspector Lau and Yan when they were part of the Triad and the police organization respectively and how to have gotten to become moles.Added to that,it also tells the story as to how they became infiltrators and the adjustments they have made in order to become credible and how they worked hard to meet the expectations of their bosses. Added to that,it also gets into their personal demons and the discomfort as moles. While this maybe far from being a masterpiece unlike the first film,it still manages to be a fantastic prequel.As a stand alone film,I think that it definitely still qualifies as a good film in spite of the comparisons between the first film and this one cannot be avoided.

Quality and packaging was great but the movie was a little long for my taste. I like the fact that they realy went deep into the story but they extended the movie quite a bit. But thanks another addition to my collection.

I couldn't be happier with this sequel as it does a very good job telling the back stories of the stars of the movie. The Departed tried to condense this, but you really can't. Definitely a must buy.
