Nothing spectacular here. Amidst what seems to be mostly chaos, the last few sequences with Simon Yam in the helm stand out.

Democracy in the Hong Kong triads sure is damn more entertaining than in dreary old Denmark. The plot, in To's typical leisure style with bursts of violence and baroque humour, is all over the place, of course, but it's full of great scenes, especially the disturbing ending and a guy cooly crunching and eating a ceramic spoon like it was a fortune cookies.

The story isn't as engaging as its sequel, suffering from slow pacing during the hunt for the triad baton and a certain straightforwardness to several characters and events. However, it's still a fantastic "crime procedural", feeling as authentic as any gangster film I've ever seen. This is aided by excellent performances from the entire cast, particularly Simon Yam in the lead. I also love the sudden, visceral eruptions of violence, with the ending being the highlight. Very good, but not great.

I didn't quite believe in the ending, shouldn't be that easy to just cap some big shot organization leader like that, but the film in general seemed a lot real and accurate, and the characters are very well crafted and played, Lok being the natural born leader and all.

If you're tired of mafia films, this might be for you, as I think of it as a "reverse" *Goodfellas*--or more specifically, a "Confucian *Godfather". I say this because the values expressed are quite different. For example, the film flips the adage, "There is no honor among thieves" on its head--making honor a significant motivating force for the characters. However, the film also has a whiff of political propaganda in the way it seems to rationalize any behavior done in the interests of societ

Has style in abundance, but lacks a coherent plot and characters you can identify with. Most of it just feels like a pastiche of American mafia movies like the Godfather or Goodfellas (the guy playing the "Big D" character basically does a Joe Pesci impersonation for the whole film), but none of it really gels together in any meaningful way. The ending feels like a completely separate film altogether.

It had an impact with me by the end, but the pacing was a bit slow at times and it's unfortunate considering To normally paces his films well. Watch only if you're a gangster movie junkie.

Gripping journey into a murky amoral world where honour and brotherhood clash with greed and a lust for power. None of the high-kicks and gun battles of so many Triad films, just great acting and direction. Special mention to the music, which I thought was wonderful. Only gripe is that as with many gangster movies it's hard to find a character one can relate to.

Election bustles with energy right from first minute to the last, smartly crafted by Johnnie To who gives an otherwise mediocre script a forward momentum that takes your breath away. Dazzlingly set action pieces, shady characters, and crackling tension together make Election the finest Triad film coming out from Hong Kong stable. How is Johnny To ever going to top this??

A gorgeous film, but I have yet to figure out what it is trying to say (about human nature? brotherhood? allegiance and duty?). Still, it is riveting and very competently made. The ending is not sitting well with me, but thankfully in the good sense.
