Bad Editing
The description should give insight into the article itself and be longer than that. Definitely shouldn't be just asking the "audience" a question.

Ahh the departed, awesome movie, took me a while to understand the harsh ending. I didn't know it was a remake..

I've yet to see Infernal Affairs but your arguements over the backstory kind of make sense...there is a reason The Departed won best editing. The average shot in the first hour and 1/2 or so of The Departed last for about 4 seconds. Scorsese and Co. did a good job of handling the backstory considering all they had to work with. The movie really doesn't slow down until the end of the 2nd act.
