Infernal Affairs III, the third and final installment in the Infernal Affairs trilogy, continues the story of the previous two films with a complex and emotional tale of betrayal and redemption. Set ten years after the events of Infernal Affairs, the film primarily follows the character of Superintendent Wong (played by Tony Leung Chiu-wai). Wong is tasked with investigating an old case involving a triad boss named Sam (Eric Tsang) who is suspected of being involved in corrupt and illegal activities. However, his investigation becomes complicated when he realizes that one of his own officers, Yeung (Leon Lai), may have been involved with Sam in the past.

Meanwhile, the former undercover cop Lau Kin-ming (Andy Lau) has been secretly hiding out in Taiwan, working as a psychologist under a new identity. However, when he learns that an old colleague has been killed and that his former boss may be in danger, he decides to return to Hong Kong to help.

As the investigation into Sam and Yeung heats up, the lines between good and evil, right and wrong, become increasingly blurred. The film explores the themes of loyalty, identity, and the often-murky morality of law enforcement.

What sets Infernal Affairs III apart from the previous films is its focus on character development and emotional depth. While the previous installments were primarily action-packed thrillers, this film takes a more introspective approach, emphasizing the human cost of the undercover work and the toll it takes on the officers involved.

Tony Leung's performance as Superintendent Wong is a standout, showcasing his ability to convey subtle emotions and inner turmoil. Meanwhile, Andy Lau expertly portrays Lau Kin-ming's complex mix of regret, anger, and trauma.

The film's pacing is slower than the previous entries in the trilogy, allowing for more time to explore the complex relationships between the characters. However, this also means that the action scenes are less frequent and less intense, which may disappoint fans of the earlier films.

One potential issue with the film is its convoluted plot, which may be confusing to viewers who are not familiar with the previous installments in the series. However, for those who have followed the story from the beginning, the film's intricate storylines and interwoven character arcs add to the overall emotional impact of the film.

Overall, Infernal Affairs III is a strong conclusion to the trilogy, providing a satisfying conclusion to the story while also offering a more introspective look at the toll of undercover work. With powerful performances from its cast and a complex storyline, this film is a must-see for fans of the series.

Infernal Affairs III is a 2003 crime movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 58 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.8.
