I really got a lot of laughs out of the dialogue. I remember when it played in theatres here, a lot of local people wondered why the remake of
Infernal Affairs had so much profanity.
"That's how people in South Boston talk," I would tell them.
dotalk like that. I grew up in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Listening to the characters profanely insult one another at every opportunity made me nostalgic. It reminded me of Christmas.
The Cantonese in the film was laughable too, but not in a good way. My Cantonese sucks and it's better than these guys.You'd think they could get real Cantophones for the money they spent making this movie.
Or realize that people involved in espionage for the Chinese government are more likely to be Mandarin speakers...
This was certainly not Scorsese's best effort. The final shot of the film is laughably bad, not just for the bad CGI, but for what the CGI is. Ham-fisted allegory like that belongs in
Blood Brothers, not a Scorsese picture.
I'd say he did a good job remaking
IA, except that he'd be the first to deny it's a remake. He actually said it's inspired by
Infernal Affairs, not a remake:
