Infernal Affairs - The Trilogy

£13.97

Synopsis:
Three features. 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'.

No dubbing? The US version if you have multi-region is better as it is in English.

do you really want it dubbed into a different language? The bad lip syncing makes my head hurt. I'd much prefer to have subtitles.

Voted hot, as they're great films

The bad lip sync is what makes these funny and great.
Better than watching subtitles as they distract you from the film.

Anyway, I prefer Tony Jaa:-D

No No No No No!!!!

HK films should always be shown in cantonese (or mandarin if filmed in that) with subtitles, any dubbing at all is just plain wrong and spoils the whole experience.

*edit, great films btw*

Voted hot because the first Infernal Affairs movie, at least, is excellent. The third was okay but I haven't seen the second one. In case people didn't know, 'The Departed' was the Hollywood remake of the first movie, and it's nowhere as good IMHO...

Please tell me you're joking? This is one of the best dramatic trilogies in cinema history and you're saying that you intentionally want bad lip sync to make them funny?

The first Infernal Affairs was recently remade with a Hollywood cast by Scorsese (The Departed).

Tony Jaa is not really comparible to anyone in Infernal Affairs, as he is from a totally different country / culture and makes totally different movies. He is an action stunt god, I grant you; but his brainless Thai Jackie Chan-style antics would be useless in these masterpieces. I also recommend the "A Better Tomorrow" trilogy if you enjoy these 3 movies.

Voted hot.

For anyone with one or more films from the trilogy already......or if you want the entire trilogy cheaper than the boxset then here's the best prices (I could find) for each individually -

Infernal Affairs 1 - £3.99 from CDWOW going through the Mastercard affiliate link HERE

Infernal Affairs 2 - £4.99 HMV (less 45p cashback if going through Quidco)

Infernal Affairs 3 - £2.99 @ CDWOW using the above link for the single disc Region 2 or £5.99 for the Asian (Region 3) 2-disc version.

That would give a total price of £11.97 for the standard release versions of the trilogy titles.
It's still a damn good price for the boxset though if you can't be bothered to faff about!!!


If using CDWOW vouchers (the £1 or 50p promo vouchers that crop up from time to time) then you're best ordering (1 & 3) individually as you can only use one voucher per transaction.

I agree, these should be watched in the original language though I believe dubbing on foreign movies has improved since Monkey series back in the 70s :thinking:

How can anyone enjoy dubbing in films?? Mindless!
#10
I have all three, great trilogy, especially with the original Cantonese language.
Lau Tak Wah (Andy) is also a great singer.

This price is < £15 so doesn't qualify for Amazon's free delivery, you either have to spend another £0.97 or pay £1.16 for delivery. Unlikely to find many of the former so realisticly the price is £15.13.

HMV do the box set at £15.99 with free delivery, and the individuals at £4.99, £4.99 and £5.49 for !, II and II respectively (total £15.47 with free delivery). If you live nearby you could walk in and pick these up today at these prices I'd imagine. Alternatively as CHARLIETHIRTYTWO found out I and III can be obtained cheaper elsewhere (although no mention of delivery costs).

Great set of films, but not that Hot a deal in my opinion.

This has been along standing argument as to whether member HAD to post P&P charges for Amazon, as MOST people would, when it's this close to the £15 mark would find something else to roll it over what is a fairly low minimum order to qualify for free P&P.
(The general opinion was that lower priced items where the buyer would have to add items higher than the posted item value in order to benefit from free P&P should have it added prominently. A quick scan through posted Amazon deals (2008 kids Annuals & calenders were starting from 99p or a quid) will usually find you something as a filler)

1. Even with Amazon's postage charge I still make £15.13 cheaper than HMV's £15.99 or £15.47 as individuals....the only way these are better are in terms of Quidco cashback which is never guaranteed.
2. HMV store prices are not always the same as online so not always wise to reckon the 2 will be the same.
3. I didn't post CDWOW's P&P rates as UK P&P is Free as stated on their homepage (top right) for anyone that didn't already know, making these titles (Quidco not inc...but would still be cheaper anyway) far cheaper using the method stated than by buying all @ HMV.........



Moviemail also have the same boxset @ £14.99 with free P&P (within the UK) HERE

Relatively new here so unaware of previous discussions on modus operandi.

Fair enough, but why buy something you don't want? Personally I don't have kids or use calendars so would have no use for the examples you provide. Overall I'd say that its unreasonable to expect people to buy something to bulk out their purchase to gain free postage, so the cost of this deal is really £15.13 not the claimed £13.97.

1. Even with Amazon's postage charge I still make £15.13 cheaper than HMV's £15.99 or £15.47 as individuals....the only way these are better are in terms of Quidco cashback which is never guaranteed.


Agreed, never claimed otherwise.

CHARLIETHIRTYTWO

2. HMV store prices are not always the same as online so not always wise to reckon the 2 will be the same.


Again, agreed, hence my caveat.

CHARLIETHIRTYTWO

3. I didn't post CDWOW's P&P rates as UK P&P is Free as stated on their homepage (top right) for anyone that didn't already know, making these titles (Quidco not inc...but would still be cheaper anyway) far cheaper using the method stated than by buying all @ HMV.........


Never looked at CDWOW before, thanks for the information. I never claimed that HMV was the cheapest, just that after accounting for postage and packaging the Deal wasn't that great.

Moviemail also have the same boxset @ £14.99 with free P&P (within the UK) HERE


Thats excellent, and is really why I bothered posting anything in the first place. The original 'Deal' isn't the cheapest possible, and after doing five minutes research I realised there were possibly better alternatives, and was posting details of what I'd found. I did clearly indicate that you had found even cheaper alternatives as well. :thumbsup:

Peace,

i must say, i really expected more from The Departed, given the vast experience of the master director, the big cast, Hollywood budget and simply adapting an original storyline that is already there. typically the academy awards made the mistake of calling it a japanese film ...

after watching them both, I still prefer the trilogy HK version.
1. it's the original, and the storytelling is masterful, a well-paced thriller.

2. the only credit on the film to the original is in partnership with "(asian name) production studio" so that is in bad faith i thought. should really give credit where it is due.

3. scenes and characters were not allowed to develop the way the trilogy was - for example you cannot simply compress the time space and head space of what it feels like to be without identity (ie if it was deleted by the 'copper'). or the suspended tension the 1st time when the 'baddie' was possibly going to be found out (tap on the window scene).

4. tony leung reprises his tv drama series role in Police Cadet, in the Infernal Affairs. and i like him as an actor ...
