Wow. A remake of an Asian film that actually looks GOOD! Although the Scorcese factor helps a lot.

The original (INFERNAL AFFAIRS) is in my top 5 Hong Kong films of all time. I think Scorsese has the goods to pull this off. And hey, it's got Alec "Third prize is you're fired" Baldwin...come on. I agree!

TRAILER TRIVIA: That's Van Morrison doing the choruses on "Comfortably Numb" with Roger Waters and members of The Band from "The Wall: Live In Berlin."

I don't think it looks that good...Infernal Affairs is one of my all-time faves and I think The Departed looks weak in comparison...I think the casting is shit and then you have one of the best moments in the movie looks like all the surprise is GONE...

I'll see it, but I expect very little.

I welcome any Scorcese picture with open arms.

Looks pretty interesting to me. That said, I have never seen the original film.
