A Bittersweet Life (Dalkomhan insaeng)(2005)

[left][font=Franklin Gothic Medium][size=3][color=darkslategray]Infernal Affairs II:[size=1] Follows on from the first with style and flair, that makes it hard to resist this Prequel, despite it being not quite as good as the first. Infernal Affairs 2 is tightly paced with terrific acting from its cast and plenty of high octane action to keep most action fans pleased. The prequel focuses on the two supporting characters of Infernal Affairs who are able to take centre stage in this installement, seeing as they were my faves of the first I knew I would enjoy this, and I wasnt wrong. It follows Crime boss Sam (Eric Tsang) who is making his way up the criminal chain and Inspector Wong (Anthony Wong) a dedicated policeman determined to stop crime. In this film they are good friends despite the fact their on opposite sides, in Infernal Affairs they are sworn enemies. Its interesting to see how their friendship pans out, and to see the determination within them. A fine follow up to the first, now lets see Scorsese do The Departed 2. Grade: [b]B+[/b][/size][/color][/size][/font][/left]

[left][font=Franklin Gothic Medium][size=1][color=darkslategray][size=3]A Bittersweet Life:[/size] Another foreign film, another quality film. A Bittersweet Life is similar in theme to Tarantino's Kill Bill films in that the lead character seeks revenge on the man who brutally beats him to a pulp. It's cinematography is effective, the acting very good, and the violence is well paced. Theres much to admire about this film, despite the fact that the plot is hardly startingly original, it does add new depths to the idea, and its very entertaining throughout its duration, if you enjoy foreign films with violence I have no doubt you'd all enjoy this. Grade[b]: B[/b][/color][/size][/font][/left]
