About the Movie
Dennis Peck knows his way around the law. He can launder money, run a scam, fix a bad rap. He can even, for the right price, arrange a murder. "Trust me," he says, "I'm a cop." Richard Gere is Peck and Andy Garcia is Raymond Avila, the investigator determined to bring Peck to justice in this supercharged police thriller. Peck isn't going down without a fight. The slick, cold-blooded manipulator intends to take Avila's career, his marriage, even his sanity with him in Internal Affairs. "A fine tight script," says Gary Franklin (KABC-TV). "Two thumbs up!" say Siskel & Ebert.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Internal Affairs is, for the dim movie season that is traditionally January, an unusually bright light.
Fresh: Gere is hypnotic, writer Henry Bean's construction is entertainingly intricate, and director Mike Figgis knows how to turn on a subtle, authentic erotic heat.
Fresh: Figgis never lets the pace slow long enough to expose the story's thinness despite, in retrospect, a moderate amount of action.
Fresh: Those with strange axes to grind, or too much time, or demented senses of humor, and you know who you are, may just have a fun time of this.
A CLASSIC COP THRILLER
Forget about cop movies with departed people that think they own the night, INTERNAL AFFAIRS is one great cop drama, it's very under rated, but this movie will blow you away!!!
This taut police thriller kept me on the edge of my seat. The well developed characters, especially Richard Gere's and Andy Garcia's, seem very human and make this film a standout. I saw the movie recently and keep thinking about the characters. Perhaps this quality of thinking about a work long after experiencing it is part of what separates art and entertainment.
You can't beat the price. Richard Gere is an evil beast in this one, and that may be partly due to me being glad he's not playing some guy who's supposed to be a stud (ie. American Gigilo) with his beady, squinty little eyes and huge nose, with absolutely no physique to brag about. anyway Andy Garcia pulls off the jealous/angry husband role excellently and the story as well as characters are appealing and engrossing. A classic
