Films in 50 words-ish: Infernal Affairs

Buy it!A well crafted undercover cop caper, Infernal Affairs looks good and delivers the required tension, suspense and personal life subplots. Hitchcockian themes of confused identity are there for those who care to look, while extensive use of technology (not special effects) keep it contemporary. But it lacks that certain something.

An enjoyable 7 out of 10.

21 Grams……City of God (Cidade de Deus)

If you found my comments useful, let Amazon know by clicking Infernal Affairs and hitting the ‘yes’ button underneath their copy of this review. You may buy while you’re there.
