選老頂 (The Mobfathers) (Blu-ray release 2016-7-22) is a Hong Kong gangster movie about the election of the next leader of the gangsters – the same subject that has been explored in the two Election movies (2005-2006).  There is a significant difference though.  This movie is actually a political and social satire about the China – Hong Kong relationship regarding the election of the Chief Executive, and the police – gangster relationship.  Even from a superficial level, ignoring its meaning, I think the movie is mostly well done with sufficiently entertaining aspects.
