Outrageously over-the-top special effects-fest. find out more...

Infernal Affairs II is every bit as slick as the first, an intelligent action thriller that fleshes out the central characters' motivations and, in a pleasantly frustrating way, makes a second watching of Part One unavoid find out more...
