Watched the Election duo of Hong Kong movies (Election, Triad Election). Read that they were kind of considered the Hong Kong Godfather and if you take both movies together, they're about the combined length of one Godfather movie. Overall, good; although you (a) have to read subtitles and (b) have to be into HK/Chinese traditions to fully understand them.
The first movie dragged a bit for me because of the "tradition" stuff, as most of the movie was about two rival gangs fighting to gain possession of a staff that was to them very important, but to my way of thinking was nothing more than a ceremonial artifact. But to them, it was a symbol of power and you weren't really the leader of the Triad if you didn't have control of the staff.
The second was a lot better in my eyes. The guy who won the showdown in the first movie decides to fuck tradition and run for a second two-year term as Chairman of the Triad. The guy who was the Uncles' (ie: older dudes who were former Chairmen and are now advisors) main choice didn't want the job as he was looking to be a legit businessman, but due to legal issues, was told by the Chinese that the only way he'd be allowed to do business in China would be if he had the clout that came with being a Triad Chairman. Cue a violent power struggle as he decides to be Chairman and has to deal with the older guy who isn't stepping down.
