Infernal Affairs (15)
One of the most edge of the seat thrillers you could see, Infernal Affairs combines exhilarating action with utter coolness. The Hong Kong police have had a mole buried within the Triads for 10 years, who has risen up the criminal ranks but would like to be brought in. But the Triads also have a mole within the police force, sabotaging their raids, leading to head spinning situations.
The film was remade by Martin Scorsese as The Departed, but Scorsese added an hour to the running time, filling it with an over the top performance from Jack Nicholson and pushing the violence levels through the roof. The original is much better as a gripping thriller with outstanding drama, muscle-clenching suspense and two great leads in Tony Leung and Andy Lau.
