    Johnnie To is the master of casually brutal and spontaneous violence, which is always somehow more disturbing than elaborate gorefests. Election has a lot of those moments, punctuating a portrait of the Hong Kong triads and their traditions as two men vie for the position of chairman. Will patience or aggression win out in the end? As with To's other films, this is more thoughtful than most gangster films, but a little more action-oriented than, say, PTU. A really good film, but then, I usually love anything with Simon Yam in it. 3 years ago
