Not a patch on the original (Infernal Affairs), but hot at this price.

Many would disagree:
IMDB Internal affairs ave rating 8.1/10 out of 35,310 reviews #247 in the top 250 movies ever
The Departed ave rating 8.5/10 out of 262.822 reviews #52 in the top 250 movies ever
Though I haven't seen internal affairs so couldn't comment myself.

Top film heat added

The higher % of people (young men) who'd of seen the departed, and not seen IA, are the people more likely to frequent IMDB. It's not massively popular with a lot of people. (for partly that reason)

I think its a bit like casion -v- goodfellas. most of the people I know prefere the first one of the two they watched. for that reason I like infernal affairs better but I like this one as well and thats a good price.

The original was Infernal Affairs as opposed to 'Internal'.
I would suggest that the original scores less on IMDB because 1. it is subtitled and getting Americans to watch a subbed film is nigh on impossible 2. Again The Departed was a well hyped US film as opposed to an obscure film (series) from the Far East therefore more likely to gain greater audience.
The Departed was tremendous, but the originals were in my view, better as often happens with US remakes such as Old Boy and many others. Love to see what they would do with Shaolin Soccer.....hehe.
