The Departed is Leonardo DiCaprio’s strongest performance as a moral underdog versus a crooked hypocrite. Incredibly multifarious interaction with Jack Nicholson and the rest of this epic cast.

Andrew Lau, the co-director of Infernal Affairs, who was interviewed by Hong Kong newspaper Apple Daily on October 9, 2006, said:

Of course I think the version I made is better, but the Hollywood version is pretty good too. Scorsese made the Hollywood version more attuned to American culture.

Many Asians see the reason for a Hollywood version as necessary because of Hollywood and American’s aversion to seeing Asian males in dramatic, non-stereotypical roles.Andy Lau, one of the main actors in Infernal Affairs, when asked about how the movie compares to the original, said:

The Departed was too long and it felt as if Hollywood had combined all three Infernal Affairs movies together.
