Default Re: Internal Affairs vs. The Departed-

I have yet to see Infernal Affairs, though I'm very interested in seeing it. If it's better than The Departed, than I'm sure I'll like it... One thing is for sure though, Martin Scorsese's adaptation is no farce. I don't know if any of you have purchased the DVD yet, or the special edition for that matter, but there is a bonus feature about the Boston Mob, and how a few of the characters in The Departed were based on real people. Jack Nicholson's character, for instance, was based on an actual gangster from South Boston named Whitey Bulger. Point being, Scorsese's version isn't just a cheap "American version", there is some legitimacy to the story.
