Three features now in High Definition. Directed by Andrew Lau and Alan Mak, Infernal Affairs is a tense thriller featuring Hong Kong superstars Andy Lau and Tony Leung. The film follows the parallel lives of Ming (Lau), a cop who secretly reports to ruthless Triad crime boss Sam (Eric Tsang); and Yan (Leung), an undercover police officer who poses as a Triad member in Sam's gang. For Yan, the years of living in the criminal underworld have taken their toll, and he longs to return to regular police duty. However, the only person who knows Yan's true identity is his mentor Superintendent Wong (Anthony Wong), also the unsuspecting superior of Ming. When Wong's officers come face to face with Sam's gang, both leaders realise there are moles in their midst. Soon Yan and Ming must track each other down, leading to an inevitable confrontation.
Unlike many contemporary Hong Kong films, Infernal Affairs steers clear of over-the-top action in favour of a more stylised and subdued story that builds on emotional and psychological tension. Leung is riveting as the undercover cop who desperately wants a normal life, while Lau instils his corrupt character with confidence and charm that mask his deep inner conflict. These two stellar turns are ably supported by veteran actors Wong and Tsang, along with Sammi Cheng and Kelly Chen. A huge blockbluster in Asia, Infernal Affairs is a landmark of Hong Kong cinema that deserves the same status abroad. Part of the New Directors/New Films 2003 series presented by The Department of Film and Media at the Museum of Modern Art and the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York City. Also features: 'Infernal Affairs II' and 'Infernal Affairs III'.

I am a fan of Hong Kong crime films and had already purchased the three "Infernal Affairs" films on DVD some years ago and enjoyed them so much that i took the opportunity to upgrade to the Blu Ray versions as soon as i seen them advertised on your web site. The transfer to Blu ray is commendable and all of the extras on the original DVD's are included on each of the films. The sub - titling is first class and i would not hesitate to recommend it to any fan of Hong Kong cinema.
If you've seen "The Departed", you will have few surprises while watching the first film in the Infernal Affairs Trilogy. It has a great plot, good acting, and as a fan of Tony Leung, I have to recommend it. The second film takes place before, and details the youth and evolution of the undercover cop, and his mole cop counterpart. The third film is a direct sequel to the first, and closes a very good trilogy. Once you've seen it, you'll understand (if not already) that Hong Kong's directors and actors have a lot to offer apart from gunfights. Indeed, you will have very little action in this trilogy, which is more comparable to an Asian version of The Godfather, than it is to John Woo's movies. The drama and tension are very well balanced, and you might just watch all three films in a row like I did. Once again, considering the very low price, it is a great buy.
Infernal Affairs Trilogy is a great film, great service.
These may be some of the best movies in the last few years. The Infernal Affairs Trilogy has excellent storylines and plots, performed by good actors. All three movies are linked to each other quite well. They're must see movies!
I already own all three films on DVD and, especially at this amazing Zavvi price, I could not resist the upgrade to Blu-Ray. For anyone who loves Heat or the Godfather trilogy, this is a must see! These are not just three of the best Asian films of all time, but simply three of the best films of the genre from anywhere in the world!
