Movie Info

In the Los Angeles Police Department, Officer Dennis Peck (Richard Gere) is a divisive figure, loved by those who are loyal to him and looked on with suspicion by others. His disreputable behavior and dubious finances arouse the suspicion of Internal Affairs, and Sgt. Raymond Avila (Andy Garcia) and his partner (Laurie Metcalf) are assigned to investigate. When a series of witnesses are murdered, Avila realizes his life is in danger, along with that of his wife's (Nancy Travis).

Critic Reviews for Internal Affairs

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (3)

  • Gere is hypnotic, writer Henry Bean's construction is entertainingly intricate, and director Mike Figgis knows how to turn on a subtle, authentic erotic heat.

  • Figgis never lets the pace slow long enough to expose the story's thinness despite, in retrospect, a moderate amount of action.

  • Internal Affairs delivers what it promises, and perhaps a little more. There's less action but more menace, and the pulse quickens as the plot drives relentlessly toward a conclusion that, in retrospect, can be seen as inevitable.

    April 9, 2008 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Dark, dangerous and disturbing.

    Top Critic
  • Internal Affairs is, for the dim movie season that is traditionally January, an unusually bright light.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 4/5
  • [A] cliched catchall, which wastes a fine cast.

Audience Reviews for Internal Affairs

  • May 30, 2012
    "Internal Affairs" has a strong start, but it quickly descends into pointless character development, boring melodrama, and an inevitable and abrupt conclusion. Richard Gere delivers a top-notch performance as the film's primary villain, but Andy Garcia often falls by the wayside with his monotonous and uncharismatic portrayal. As well, Mike Figgis tries to incorporate as much visual flair as possible, but "Internal Affairs" is just downright uninteresting.

    Richard Gere is fantastic and Andy Garcia showed depth I didn't think he had. An excellent first two acts, followed by a weaker and messy last act. Still, a very good thriller overall, with Michael Mann-esque direction.

    Internal Affairs is a nasty little suspense thriller!!!and it was hard to see Richard Gere playing such an evil person..
