Stunning original Asian movie

"Remember this, if you see someone doing something but at the same time watching you... then he is a cop."

There are a very limited number of movie enthusiasts who haven't heard of Martin Scorsese's The Departed; a film that became one of the most critically acclaimed films of its decade. When I first saw Scorsese's masterpiece I was unaware that it was actually a remake of a small-... read more

I don't know whether he's good or bad.

''I can't finish the novel, I don't know whether he's good or bad.''

A story between a mole in the police department and an undercover cop. Their objectives are the same: to find out who is the mole, and who is the cop.

Tony Leung Chiu Wai: Chan Wing Yan

I was fortunate enough to see this movie before 'The Departed'. I remember, back in those days, I kept hearing about this flick so I was really eager to check it out. I first missed it when it was on TV but then managed to borrow the DVD from my sister and I was seriously not disappointed. In my opinion, even if Scorsese's version was pretty good, I easily prefer this movie anyway. Indeed, the dir... read more

Description: The setting is the never-ending war between the police and the Triads of Hong Kong. Chan is a cop who's been assigned to undercover work inside the Triads for so long that he's been able to rise through the ranks to a position of some authority. Lau, meanwhile, is a secret member of the Triads who has infiltrated the police force with an equal level of success. As they feed their bosses information on the plans and counter-plans of the organizations they pretend to serve, they both begin to feel the stresses of their double lives as they become torn between the oppressive obligations they owe to their superiors and the growing c ...

Movie Reviews (1951-2000) (50 movies items)

" Even if I saw the wonderful remake first (due to how much easier it is accessible) the original deserves even more praise as it was this fillm that gave us the engaging twist and the shock twist ending first. Absorbing characters and the usual fast-paced frentic editing that we are used to see when Hong Kong's finest films are on the screen. The Hollywood adaptaion have better dialogue but the action is tougher here."

"The kind of intricate, multilayered cop movie they don't make over here, until they remade this one as The Departed."
