The best thing to come out of American remakes

of Asian movies is the release of Infernal Affairs 2! If you haven't seen Infernal Affairs 1 go check out the review at It's definitely one of the most famous HK films in recent memory, and has yet to be surpassed. However, one of my favorite films of all time is Infernal Affairs 2, the prequel to Infernal Affairs 1. If you like triad drama, gun fights, and hot Asian men in black shooting other people, this is definitely the movie for you. (Perhaps the absence of hot Asian women is why this series never got a wider release. Elva Xiao's kind of hot but she's only in IA 1 for about one minute. Whereas Shawn Yu, who's quite hot, stars in Infernal Affairs 2.)

Thank you, Martin Scorcese for making a remake of Infernal Affairs because the powers that be will finally release Infernal Affairs 2 and 3 in America. Although I still say that Tony Leung, Shawn Yu, Edison Chen, and even Andy Lau could kick Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio's asses any day.

Yeah I was slightly ambivalent about Edison Chen. I think he might be able to kick Leonardo DiCaprio's ass. But I agree with Tony Leung being the most badass of the four. Also I forgot to mention that Eric Tsang could definitely eat Robert DiNiro for breakfast.
