Infernal Affairs

I just watched Wu jian dao and I think it is an excellent movie. It is only 101 minutes long, but the tension and pacing of the film makes it seem like much longer. Which is a good thing, because everything is fully realized. The only thing missing is an explanation of Yan's daughter. What gives this movie so much excitement and tension is the game of cat and mouse played between Yan and Lau, and you are never sure where a person's loyalties really lie.

The two stars of the film are Tony Leung and Andy Lau. Both extremely prolific and famous Chinese actors, who are excellent in this movie. Kelly Chen and Sammi Cheng make brief appearances, but are not important to the story. Now that I've seen this one, I want to get a copy for myself, along with the two other movies in the series.
