Triad Underworld is a Hong Kong crime drama film released in 2004, directed by Wong Ching-Po and starring Andy Lau, Jacky Cheung, and Shawn Yue. The movie is set in the Triads, the underground world of Hong Kong's criminal society. The story revolves around Chan Ho Nam (Andy Lau), a former member of the Triads and the current leader of the Hung Hing gang. He is an experienced criminal and is respected by his superiors and subordinates alike. Things take a serious turn when he is arrested by the police and is sentenced to five years in prison. During this time, his gang falls apart and several groups try to take control of his territory.

Meanwhile, a new player appears in the Triads in the form of Yi Fung (Jacky Cheung), a mysterious and elusive figure who is a master strategist and wants to take over the Triad world. Chan Ho Nam's lieutenant, Chicken Chiu (Shawn Yue), is a young and ambitious member of the gang who is tasked with keeping the group together in Chan Ho Nam's absence. In the face of Yi Fung's aggression, Chicken Chiu struggles to keep Hong Kong's Triad gangs from collapsing into utter chaos.

As the story unfolds, Chan Ho Nam is released from prison and sets out to regain control of his gang. However, to do so, he must face Yi Fung's elite fighters in a series of brutal battles that will determine the fate of the Triads. In the midst of this conflict, Chan Ho Nam also grapples with a difficult family situation – his younger brother, who is seen as his successor in the world of organized crime, is in love with a police officer.

The tension and suspense build as the story develops, revealing the complexities of the Triads and the lengths to which people will go to maintain power in the criminal underworld.
