Watched Jun 11, 2012
After watching The Mission, I needed more Johnnie To. More! All Johnnie To all the time. Triad Election (or Election 2) is a sequel to Election, and a continuation of his "power, but at what cost?" theme.
As the politics get more brutal and the moral compromises more horrifying, so do the action set-pieces. Triad Election is not one of To's more light-hearted ventures. There is humor, but it is dark dark dark.
I found this to be a big improvement on Election, which I thought was just alright. More exciting, higher stakes, better characters.
