Elements of all three films were streamlined into the [[ForeignRemake remake]] as ''Film/TheDeparted'', which transferred the action to Boston and made the Triad equivalents [[TheIrishMob Irish-American gangsters]] (with a bit of Irish Mob mythology about [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitey_Bulger Whitey Bulger]] tossed in), and won the 2006 Best Picture Oscar. In Japan, an episode aired in [=TBS=] in 2012 as a remake under the title ''Double Face - Sennyuu Sosa Hen''. It was adapted in South Korea as ''Film/{{City of Damnation}}'' and in India as ''Film/{{Homam}}'' in the Telugu language.

Oh, and the title and the epigrams at the beginnings and ends of the films suggest that HongKong is Buddhist {{Hell}} and all the characters' lives suck because they're being punished for the sins of their past lives. Or they metaphorically evoke the hells that Yan and Lau are living in as a result of their undercover rules.
