New York Times:
Internal Affairs is, for the dim movie season that is traditionally January, an unusually bright light.
Internal Affairs delivers what it promises, and perhaps a little more. There's less action but more menace, and the pulse quickens as the plot drives relentlessly toward a conclusion that, in retrospect, can be seen as inevitable.
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.
Figgis never lets the pace slow long enough to expose the story's thinness despite, in retrospect, a moderate amount of action.
Figgis gives his dolled-up universe a high-voltage hum. And at the center of it, Gere is an extraordinarily vivid monster -- the devil as fashion plate.
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.
