An infernal affairBy Bribaba (146 reviews) from London , 21 Sep 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]Starts off promisingly as a slick HK thriller-cum-Andy Lau vehicle, but soon gets bogged down in druggy social realism. Thanks, but we do them.

interestingBy a customer from London , 25 Jun 2009watchable mafia action film with a few twists and turns
A Chinese PuzzleBy Regraff (28 reviews) from Colchester , 24 Apr 2009Under cover cop has infiltrated a drug baron's set up and is his protege. The Baron shows him all the secrets of his business so that he can hand over the business when he dies. This should be soon as he has very dodgy kidneys. The protege gets mixed up with a strange drug addled female and her little daughter. How does it end. Well its a Chinese puzzle. Watch out as this is dubbed into English from Chinese and can be distracting.
must watchBy MXMV (7 reviews) from Southampton , 20 Mar 2009i loved this film, Im not usually into the whole undercover cop and drug dealing things... i fell asleep at traffic, but this one kept me wanting to watch it, it was raw real and honest. I actually felt so sorry for some of the bad charters because they portrayed their own hardship in it all. I defiantly would recommend this to people, but maybe not as a first thing in the morning film as i ended up doing.
Bit worried at first!!By SuperSaint (343 reviews) from Market Harborough , 18 Mar 2009what with the dubbing etc.However,got into it and is worth a watch.
One to watchBy Osrat (10 reviews) from Kings Langley , 18 Feb 2009I was pleasantly surprise to find such a good and watchable film from a local H.K. movie. Derek Yee captured the scene and story very well, especially the drug sides from dealer to user. It's worth watching again in the near future.
