A superlative, obsessive and seductive cat-and-mouse thriller (by Afracious)
Richard Gere and Andy Garcia are the two conflicting lead characters in this superlative cop thriller. Garcia plays Raymond Avilla, an Internal Affairs officer who has just started in a new precinct to work with his new partner, Amy Wallace Laurie Metcalf . His first case leads him to suspect another officer, Dennis Peck a committed, nasty and brilliant performance form Gere, who has never been better , is involved in illegal activities. Soon after, Peck realises that Avilla is on his trail, and starts to confront him with boasts of how he his going to take his wife, and Avilla punches him. <more>
These scenes are great. Avilla is the clean-cut guy and Peck is immoral without any remorse. You really get to despise Peck in the film, he even kills people on the side for money and protects hookers. The film rolls along with a seductive and sensuous flair as Peck meets Avilla's beautiful wife, Kathleen Nancy Travis , and Avilla thinks she has slept with him. The scene after this where Avilla confronts her in the restaurant is a classic. The film then builds to a gripping final showdown scene. The motif on the video for this movie is ''charming, seductive and deadly'', and I have to agree. It is a gripping, classy and entertaining thriller.
By far one of Richard Gere's most under-rated films - the excellent cast gives stunning performances. (by robertmaybeth)
This clever, smart, under-stated story displays much of the style and cinematic genius that director Mike Figgis would show for "Leaving Las Vegas" only 6 years later. The actors are well-cast in their roles and all of them give stellar performances no matter how minor their part. The many gears and wheels that are grinding in this story, of beat cop Dennis Peck Richard Gere and his shadow fiefdom of criminals in blue, are mostly just hinted at rather then explained outright. It takes a perceptive viewer to get all the subtle nuances the story constantly is presenting, and to do <more>
it in only one viewing it took me the second viewing before I got many of them but it was worth it - there's a lot of elements to this story and most of them are interesting . I'm not sure why this movie is rated so low on IMDB, I'm tempted to think that many viewers didn't like seeing Richard Gere as villain; or perhaps it was the great subtlety which the story is told. Even so, this is one movie that no Richard Gere fan should miss - it's one of his strongest, most under-stated performances..

Mind games. Manipulation. Corruption. Welcome to the world of Dennis Peck. (by baumer)
I have never quite seen a movie like this before. In it, Richard Gere plays his most sinister role and I think his best character in years. There are many disturbing elements in this film and most of them are perpetrated by Richard Gere's Dennis Peck. He knows how to manipulate people to get what he wants and if that doesn't work he uses other measures.The story goes like this: Richard Gere plays a cop that everyone owes a favour to. He is everyone's friend and everyone's silent worst enemy. He also lives a little above his income should allow him too and this is why he is <more>
being investigated by internal affairs. Enter Andy Garcia as Raymond, in a mesmerizing performance. These two know they are going to square off in the film and Peck has fun tormenting him.Peck is a charismatic, good looking, wealthy play boy. He knows how to use what he has to his advantage, and that eventually means playing with Raymond's head to make him think that he is sleeping with his wife. Did I mention that he is intuitive? And this is established so brilliantly in one of their first meetings together that it makes you cringe.Peck introduces himself to Raymond and at first he seems very co-operative assuring Raymond that he realizes Ray has a job to do just like he does. But the conversation takes an abrupt turn when Peck begins to hit too close to home when he begins to question how good Raymond's love life is right now. He knows he spends too much time at the office and that he has a beautiful, young wife that may be neglected. The scene works beautifully and sets up the psychological battle that takes place between the two as the film goes on. The next scene they have with each other is enough to make every man cringe at the cruelty of it.Internal Affairs is a character study at it's finest. There are few films out there that can compare to this one and that can be attributed to the director, Mike Figgis. He hits every note perfectly and the performances he gets from his cast is such a joy to watch. I am surprised that Andy Garcia hasn't gone on to be bigger than he is because he was outstanding here.This is an absolute must see for anyone that hasn't had the pleasure of doing so yet. But beware, there are some scenes that will get under your skin, especially if you spend too much time at the office and you have a beautiful woman waiting for you at home. What is she doing right now? Who is she with? Are you paranoid or are your concerns real? This film has fun with that paranoia.
Right before Pretty Woman 1990 , Gere played smarmy, womanizing, multi-divorced, prick LA street cop, Dennis Peck, taking money from the likes of pimps and drug-dealers in order to provide for his four wives and nine ! kids. Peck likes to spread the seed around. He's in for a rude awakening when young Hispanic Internal Affairs agent, Raymond Avilla Andy Garcia investigates Peck's partner, Van Stretch William Baldwyn , prone to violent outbursts and other criminal activities. Avilla wants Peck and hopes to get Van to turn on him. Peck not only takes money for prostitution and <more>
drugs but also negotiates executions, as is the case with a businessman's parents! Peck isn't about to not only take money and arrange gangbangers to execute the businessman's parents but feels free to bang the guy's wife as well! When Peck realizes the threat to his livelihood, he makes it a mission to torment Avilla, provoking his jealousy in regards to a wife a smokin' Nancy Travis; I'm telling you, Travis has never been this foxy! needing some lovin' knowing Peck's reputation as a womanizer, Avilla does feel a sense of uncertainty because his overworking nature to find evidence against the smart-aleck, no-good cop leaves little time for a wife wanting affection and attention from her husband and removing anyone that might point a finger at his direction. Considering the possible notoriety behind the scenes between Gere and Garcia's inability to get along, their time on screen benefits significantly from the intensity, animosity, and hostility shared between the two characters, Peck and Avilla. Gere fires on all cylinders in this performance, full of swagger and aggression, with a character that would easily dupe you into believing he's on your side, while all the while setting up your execution. Seemingly no conscience except when with his children or compassion exists in this man, and Peck has built enough bad juju for punishment to visit upon him with violent and swift justice. I like how the film establishes that Avilla's obsessions like getting a cop associated with Peck, Dorian Michael Beach , on Homicide are turning him into Peck. There's a really volatile scene where Avilla confronts his wife in a restaurant about her possible involvement with Peck that registers off-the-charts; Avilla even smacks her upside the jaw, dropping panties, stolen by Peck from her room, at her face! Laurie Metcalf Roseanne; The Big Bang Theory has a nifty supporting part as Avilla's lesbian partner, Amy Wallace. Where Internal Affairs feels conventional is in the partner getting hurt and the wife being threatened by the villain. The inevitable showdown doesn't quite match the earlier macho exchanges, eliciting plenty of fireworks, between the opposing cops. Gere dominates his scenes—every last one of them—while Garcia can stare down those associates of Avilla with a moral compass blazing a trail from his eyes that leaves them really uncomfortable and on edge a great example is the wife of Van, played by Faye Grant, who has a disdain for the IA but cannot look Avilla in the eyes; she had been screwing around with Peck behind Van's back . Annabella Sciorra has limited involvement in the film as Peck's newest wife, eventually helping Avilla take down her sleazy husband it was either her children or Peck, with few options available to her, as Avilla forces her hand . Baldwin's demise thanks to Gere is hard to watch because it is coming and Van doesn't have a clue he's about to take a shotgun blast to the chest. Not quite dying, Peck assists with a choke hold strangling the remaining life from him. This, along with the discovery of the parents under the giant Hollywood sign, just illustrates fully how evil he really is. He, at the end, uses his children's welfare as an excuse for all of his activities; Gere's whole purpose is to make us despise his character and in that he succeeds.
I have to admit, I've never agreed with the general carping about Gere. In most of the films I've seen him in, he earns his paycheck; but even if you don't like him, you should see this film. You'll probably like him even less at the end, but for all the right reasons.Here he plays Dennis Peck, a truly nasty piece of work; and believe me, Gere makes him nasty - a smooth-talking, credible sociopath who lies as easily as he breathes, and will stop at nothing to maintain his good, corrupt life - and he does it all without ever once raising his voice. Like the best villains, Gere <more>
somehow manages to give the character pathos: he does genuinely seem to want the best for his family, and he grieves after he murders. None of this stops him doing what he thinks he needs to do though, and anyone who stands in his way is in trouble.Andy Garcia is also good as the buttoned-down IA investigator who makes Peck his cause célèbre, and the cat-and-mouse game played out between the two of them and their respective wives makes good watching.I wish they'd made more use of Laurie Metcalf, who I've always liked, and it does seem unlikely that such levels of corruption by a single officer would have gone unnoticed for so long; but they're fairly minor criticisms and, in the end, the play's the thing.And it's a darn good one.
A cop 'outside'. I.A.D. on the case. (by buzznzipp1995)
This is sort of a slow starter, but once moving it goes quite nicely. Wouldn't matter anyway, I'm not really that impatient when it comes to a story I want to see.Figgis, directs this internal-power struggle police story, with a candid view. Mike does a good job of building suspense, then,"BOOM!" It explodes in your face. This was also, between the actors, Garcia, Raymond Avilla and Gear's Officer Dennis Peck, an odd but interesting match-up. I think that the perfect cat and mouse game was this stories 'pearl'. These two shined along with others that rounded out <more>
the casting. There was a certain hatred between both characters that was just right, for the story-liner. It shows, in the story cops relating to spouses and family in stress produced situations as well as the other civil servants that we don't see on a public basis.I thought that the way, this was set and brought to a scorching climax was well met by those that saw the movie. I think that Figgis set out and accomplished what he was looking for here. *** Well Done.
Probably Richard Gere's best-ever performance. (by AlabamaWorley1971)
Meet Dennis Peck, a real live sociopath. And he's got a badge and a gun. This character might be one of the most truly evil creations in the movies. On the surface, he seems like a terrific guy, a wonderful dad who plays with his kids on his days off. Even his ex-wives like him. But he's used his influence and his skill at manipulating people to create a virtual empire of wealth and power. Andy Garcia is excellent as Raymond Avila, who stumbles across this web and begins to dismantle it. The level of supporting actors is fantastic, much better than most movies. Standouts include Nancy <more>
Travis as Andy's wife, Laurie "Roseanne" Metcalf as his partner, and a young William Baldwin as Peck's partner. I rate this movie 8 out of 10.
Gere's Brilliant As A Truly Exceptional Villain (by seymourblack-1)
On the face of it, "Internal Affairs" is a routine crime drama about an investigation into the activities of an LAPD cop who's suspected of being corrupt. What elevates this movie to another level, however, is a sensational performance by Richard Gere as an extremely memorable villain who's not only corrupt, cruel and complex but also extremely manipulative and murderous.Dennis Peck Richard Gere is a street cop who's popular and respected by his superiors. He's a married man with three ex-wives and 8 kids and enjoys good relationships with all of them. Over the <more>
years he's been helpful to many of his fellow officers and his ability to call in favours from them whenever needed has provided him with a power-base which he effectively used to operate his criminal activities.Peck comes to the attention of a newly appointed LAPD Internal Affairs investigator called Raymond Avila Andy Garcia , after the conduct of his partner Van Stretch William Baldwin gives cause for concern. Avila and another investigator called Amy Wallace Laurie Metcalf interview the young cop and it quickly becomes clear that he's a drug addicted racist who's prone to outbursts of unprovoked violence. Subsequent checks into Stretch's financial status and Peck's extra curricular activities then start to raise certain suspicions.A short time later, Stretch is killed on duty and the body of his killer is found nearby. Peck explains that he shot the murderer but doesn't disclose that the killer was actually a hit-man employed by him. Avila suspects this and soon elicits the confirmation he needs from one of the hit-man's associates before going on to discreetly keep Peck under surveillance.Peck is adept at identifying people's weaknesses and exploiting them for his own purposes and so arranges a confidential meeting with Avila's neglected wife Kathleen Nancy Travis . He asks her some questions which he infers he's authorised to do but his real purpose is to unsettle Avila who he knows will see his meeting with Kathleen and become uncontrollably jealous.Peck's plan works well and Avila becomes so unhinged that he embarrasses and beats his wife in public at her workplace. Despite this spectacular loss of control, Avila and Wallace are later able to continue their determined investigation to its conclusion although there is a significant price to be paid for what they achieve.The tense atmosphere which runs through this movie is predominantly generated by its brooding score and the intensity of the conflict between Avila and Peck who are both tough, uncompromising and remarkably similar in certain ways. The threat of extreme violence is also ever present as Stretch and Avila are both volatile men who can't control their tempers and also beat their wives.Avila appears to be cold, confident and conventional when he's first appointed to his new job but as events proceed it becomes clear that he's very ambitious, has problems with his marriage and also has a darker side to his personality which is brought out when Peck pushes the right buttons. Andy Garcia does well as he portrays the range of behaviours of his character who lacks any real warmth or the ability to empathize with others.Peck is a charming psychopath and an inveterate womaniser and Richard Gere's magnificent as he shows brilliantly his ability to be equally convincing whether he's playing the helpful colleague, a calculating manipulator of other people or a vicious killer."Internal Affairs" is ultimately a surprisingly enjoyable movie with some strong characters and an exceptional villain.
