Triad Election

Hak se wui yi wo wai kwai

Directed by Johnnie To
Hong Kong, 2006
Crime, Drama, Thriller
  • Cantonese
  • English


As election time nears, current Triad chairman Lok faces competition from his godsons. At the same time, Jimmy looks to increase his business relations with mainland China.

Our take

One of Hong Kong director Johnnie To’s masterpieces: a gangster film, as well as a sequel that boldly stands on its own. Following the nail-biting electoral process within a triad gang, Election 2 is a deceptive yet welcome reminder that all gangster films are political.
