Johnny To's tense, brutal follow-up to Election (2005) returns to the same Hong Kong crime organization as it prepares to elect a new boss to a two-year term. As in the first movie, To deftly references the Godfather trilogy, examining the moral equivocation and shifting alliances among various syndicate members. His favorite theme is the inextricable nature of gangster life: one of the candidates (Louis Koo), obsessed with becoming a legitimate businessman, discovers that he can cinch a lucrative real estate deal only by winning the election. With Simon Yam. In Cantonese with subtitles. 92 min.
