Infernal Affairs Trilogy out on Blu-ray this December exclusive to Amazon
"Out-HEATs Michael Mann"
"A Gripping Psychological Thriller"
For Immediate Release - London 23rd December 2010 -- Spanning ten years, likened to THE GODFATHER trilogy, this is the crime epic of our time. INFERNAL AFFAIRS TRILOGY remains a landmark of both Hong King cinema and international crime cinema. Winning 29 awards and another 38 nominations across the three films, the emphasis on character and cat-and-mouse plotting over action marked this out from previous Hong Kong cinema, while the impeccable production quality showed the rest of the world that Hong Kong cinema could compete with the best blockbusters every other cinema had to offer. It remains as powerful and riveting today as it did on release.
Ming and Yan live parallel lives; one is undercover in the Triads for the Police, the other is a mole in the police. Eventually their paths must cross…
Infernal Affairs 2
We go back ten years to see their lives as they first were when they were initially recruited into their respective roles. Friendships fracture, foes join forces and nothing is as it seams.
Infernal Affairs 3
10 months after the first film we see Ming as he attempts to fit into the police force and slowly morphing into Yan as he has to come to terms with the life he has chosen.
