Following the enormous success of Infernal Affairs, which virtually demanded a sequel, Andrew Lau and Alan Mak deploy even more complex plotting with this prequel. Echoing the three-part structure of the first film, Infernal Affairs II unfolds in three eras—1991, 1995, and 1997— examining how each mole burrowed into his milieu while building toward a confrontation between two rival triad gangs. Edison Chen and Shawn Yue play the young Ming (Andy Lau) and Yan (Tony Leung), respectively, but the film devotes much of its time to an array of veteran character actors who anchor the film emotionally, particularly those in the dueling father figure roles: Eric Tsang as the despotic triad mastermind and Anthony Wong as Yan’s mentor. Developing the underworld setting seen in the first film, Infernal Affairs II sets the stage for even greater revelations to emerge and ups the stakes of the saga in exciting new ways. New 4K restoration from the original camera negatives carried out by L’Immagine Ritrovata Asia. A Janus Films release.
Infernal Affairs II is presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1. This new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution on an ARRISCAN film scanner from the original camera negatives. The original stereo soundtrack was remastered from the digital audio master files.
