New Hong Kong movies

I finally had a chance to check out ‘Election’ the newest Johnnie To film when I got back from China. I liked it. It’s about the maneuvering that goes on inside a Triad electing a new boss.

Simon Yam and Tony Leung Ka-fai played the lead characters. Both performances were solid. I guess Francis Ng (where did he go?) could have also been substituted for Leung Ka-fai in that part. He used to play the out-of-control gangster really well.

I went to the premiere of Dragon Squad featuring Sammo Hung Kam-bo, Maggie Q., and a few others. Surprisingly entertaining. I wasn’t it expecting it to be so good. The action sequences in the beginning were first rate, and violent. Reminded me of the strength of older H.K. films in capturing action.
