This one is still good but it didn't hold my attention like the other two films. The acting is still great but the storytelling is all over the place so it makes for a disjointed experience.....but it does end the trilogy in a solid way.

Just as many Hong Kong movies fall apart in the third act, so the Infernal Affairs trilogy goes seriously awry in its concluding leg.

Crazy, its more physiological and less stylish/thriller then the first movie But gives a perfect closure to the trilogy. The performances and direction are much better then the second installment. The story does get difficult to follow at times but the ending is perfect and ties up the loose ends.

Bien qu'il soit clairement en deca des deux premiers episodes, Infernal Affairs 3 reste un modele de mise en scene, avec ses deux histoires entrelacees, un prequel et une vraie sequel, a la maniere du Parrain 2. Andy Lau et Tony Leung sont encore parfaits et c'est sans doute la relative absence des deux autres piliers de la saga (Anthony Wong et Eric Tsang) qui place ce film en dessous des autres. La derniere demi-heure est exceptionnelle.

The final instalment of the Infernal Affairs Trilogy is set both directly after the events of the first film as well as in the months leading up to them, introducing two new characters in the mix as well as fleshing out the part played by the psycho-analyst played by Kelly Chen. The timeline jumps back and forth repeatedly which can make the narrative seem a little confused as Yan's character makes an appearance even after his death as Lau's mental state deteriorates. Unfortunately it is this plot development that leads the trilogy into unconvincing melodrama as his schizophrenia seems very contrived and gimmicky. The scenes set earlier in the erratic timeline are better but they don't really add anything to the original story making part III seem like it's making excuses for its own existence. It is still well directed and performed and is certainly not a complete waste of time, but it feels more like a tacked on addendum rather than a natural continuation of the Infernal Affairs story.

It jumps around far too much and make sense far too little. But it still retains a bit of the fun and intrigue of the first film so I can't say it's bad.

Well, I saw the 1st of this trilogy, and that already was waaaayy too much considering how crapy it was.
I can't believe it's from those movies that Scorsese made us his masterpiece The Departed, giving him his very 1st Oscar.

so twisted... it was good
June 2, 2012
The third one wasn't terrible - but it lacks the freshness that we got from the very first film. The plot starts to get confusing ways with the flashbacks and sub plots. The new characters like Yeung (Leon Lai) are so unlikeable. They're not interesting at all. Leon Lai's performance was SHIT! The only performances I liked was from Tony Leung, the beautiful Kelly Chen and the winner would probably Andy Lau. His performance was great because in this film his character was a bit more different due to some mental problems. The film does build tension and suspense well. Overall, this isn't as good as the first movie - but it's still an ok movie.

a treat! outstandingly ingenius examination of the events leading to the AFTERMATH of the first film!

a must-see for any fan of Infernal Affairs. the end of The Departed was meaningless and was a 15 second scene. with Infernal Affairs we have a brilliant 2 hour movie. people who haven't seen it and consider themselves above average intelligence are really missing out.

It seemingly exists to buff its predecessors' rough spots but only tarnishes their memories.

Maybe i should have watched the first two before watching this movie since i found a lot confusing DURING the movie. Once it finished, i had to get my head around a couple things and once it all was realised, the twisted, magnamatic and stunning plot hit itself in my face.
A great movie.

Chapter III: Crime & Punishment. The demise of the last survivor of the "infernal affairs" comes unexpectedly through a psychological fall into guilt, solitude and madness,, in a HK cold and uncaring; an inner trip inevitably stomping hard over the very idea of fluent storytelling, but, strangely, the experience is still rewarding. Awkward but fascinating.

great psycholigical thriller and conclusion to the trilogy
October 22, 2011
I can see what the Directors tried to do... and that's the problem in a nutshell.

The movie mainly covers flashbacks to various time periods and as they overlap, you'll get more and more confused with the plot. That is exactly where they want you; for the big punch line.
Which is a let down...

Would have been a good movie as a stand alone but then again, might have been too complex given the confused timeline and the many characters. Being the third of the trilogy, I expected action, twists, depth and an overwhelming ending.
Only got the ending. :(

If you loved the first two 'Internal Affairs' movie, then you'll probably find it easy to also enjoy this concluding part: if not, you may find it more difficult. Part one was a tense thriller; part two, more epic in tone, a prequel that filled in the back story, concentrating on some of the secondary characters from the first movie. But it's not completely clear where there's any plot left to fill a third part. What this movie does is overlay the previous stories with an additional layer of romanticism and complexity; but there's a certain lack of focus to the plot, with almost all of our favourite characters already dead by the end of the second film (although, in flashback, there's a rebirth for the great Tony Leung, absent from part two). Indeed, the film works almost entirely by encouraging us to feel differently about scenes we have already witnessed. I still liked this third story about the quiet men of violence, and it did succeed in feeling like something more than just a repeat of the earlier movies. But it's not so clear how much it adds to them.

Not as good as the first two films.

It's not bad, but it shouldn't be a sequel, because it's just too different to do a proper follow-up. Probably a story broken out of the series and developed by itself independently would've come out better.
