Ratings & Reviews

  1. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Election 2

    Corrects the problems of the first by zeroing in on few characters, and thus, making them better defined, raising the stakes. It's now only about the usual aspects of gangster films: warring factions, honor, treachery, and betrayal. Thus, it's not as inventive, nor is it consistently intense, yet the brutal if appropriate violence, and all the backstabbing still bleeding from the original, is also quite mesmerizing.

  2. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Election 2

    Johnnie To never dissapoints. The music here has a very sombre tone.

  3. SlinkyLi's rating of the film Election 2

    Contrasts of light and sound, theatrical design, and well-crafted intrigue are assembled for a tremendous and timeless thrill.

  4. QuincyArthur's rating of the film Election 2

    truck fight! wish they had a gopro

  5. Alexandre Roy's rating of the film Election 2

    One of the rare sequels that surpass the original in almost every way. This is Chinese mafia movie at its best. The story is more complex, the directing has more style and the acting is better overall. It's also a lot darker and depressing. You never at any point envy the gangster lifestyle while watching this movie... The ending leaves a lot of loose ends too and we'll probably get a third film in the future.

  6. raggiodisole's rating of the film Election 2

    power corrupts. absolute power corrupts absolutely

  7. klofter's rating of the film Election 2

    One of the rare sequels capable of surpassing the original. What's also interesting is how different in style this one is. Yes they're both thrillers but the first one is more action-oriented while this one is a gutting psychological drama. Truly edge-of-your-seat type stuff.

  8. aleludovici's rating of the film Election 2

    even better than the first one!

  9. simon's rating of the film Election 2

    Watch these together second one is great! The main character is more engrossing and complex than the first film. An interesting story on power greed and tradition.

  11. Yasser Azmy's rating of the film Election 2

  12. WhatsUpWill's rating of the film Election 2

  13. Dave's rating of the film Election 2

    Yes, the climax does not match the first, but I think I might slightly prefer this one overall. The connection to The Godfather is obvious, particularly between Jimmy and Michael Corleone. The depths that Jimmy is willing to go in order to attain his goal becomes unnerving. By the end of it, you will be asking yourself - who is the true, "gangster"?

  14. HKFanatic's rating of the film Election 2

    As much as I've disparaged Louis Koo's acting in the past, no one can take "Election 2" away from him. With this film, Koo found the role he was perfectly suited for: the well-dressed Triad playboy turned legitimate businessman, consistently in over his head in the dog-eat-dog worlds of organized crime and capitalism (and the movie will make you wonder which one is worse). Johnnie To delivers a Triad masterpiece.

  15. flobota's rating of the film Election 2

    A real improvement over the first one. Does everything better, especially on the technical side. It's also even meaner than the first one.

  16. Zachary Curl's rating of the film Election 2

    excellent film. so good, and although amazing as a pairing, i always find myself drawn to this film a little more.

  17. Lthm2's rating of the film Election 2

    Not as good as the first, not very climactic but still very entertaining. The ending can't, of course, surpass the first one.

  18. Crap Monster's rating of the film Election 2

    Great sequel to a great film, I can easily see the connections to Godfather as a trilogy that many people seem to be making...
