    Especially on the climax scene on the rooftop, in Infernal Affair I really don't know which the one that actually should die, I really like Tony Leung Chiu character and Andy Lau character so I fell trilled there, but on The Departed I don't feel anything towards both Matt Damon and Leonardo Di Caprio..

    The only part that good from this film is Jack Nicholson, and Leonardo do his job well, the worse part of this film is Matt Damon, having him to fill the role of Andy Lau in this film is just insulting
    I liked Matt and Leo!

    They're hawtttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt.

    and that's all that really matters

    Which won a whole lot of awards and recognition. I'm biased so I kind of wish there was someone who saw The Departed first and then watched Infernal Affairs so I can get another perspective on the matter.

    I watched Departed before IA. Both great movies, but the different styles is what got my attention. Departed just focused more on the "rat/snitch" theme while IA focuses on Dante's Inferno. Even though I wasn't entirely impressed by their references, it ultimately made the movies unique and memorable.

    My pick would be IA for sure. I think it was a much better constructed story as well as dynamic characters. Leo and Jack did pretty good, but overall the IA cast was much more solid. I just couldn't take Departed too seriously after listening to Mark Wahlberg's jokes, even though they were great.

    I was expecting something better, The Departed storyline is almost just a copy and paste of IA, I was expecting something better since it's a Hollywood movie, Scorcese doesn't try to make the film different than IA, if he want to keep the mole idea in both mafia and police side it's ok but he doesn't need to copy the whole part like how Leo officer being killed, Matt kill Jack and Leo and Matt final showdown on the roof, it's almost the same as IA

    Marty saw something, he liked it. He wanted to share it with the world. I liked I.A. better also.
