One of the best gambling movies from Hong Kong.
24 January 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is the first sequel to both God of Gamblers and the Saint of Gamblers, returning to the screen Stephen Chow as Chow Sing Cho, who wishes to learn the skills of Ko Chun (Chow Yun-Fat). Doing so, he seeks the help of Ko Chun's disciple and newly crowned Knight of Gamblers Michael Chan (Andy Lau). The two foes attempt to earn easy money, but must set aside their differences when an old enemy of the God of Gamblers, Hussein (Lap-Man Tan), attempts to discredit them.

This is a double treat in one movie, as we see Michael Chan go up the ranks as a new gambling master, nicknamed the Knight of Gamblers, and go through his own gambling adventures. Now, throw in Chow Sing Cho the Saint of Gamblers, this movie becomes a real gambling tour-de-force. I remembered being pleasantly surprised when Stephen Chow first pops on the screen.

This is a fast-paced movie that has a very good balance of comedy, drama, action and the supernatural - all helped by some very fine acting with the large cast of characters. There's even a little bit a romance thrown in, courtesy of Sing's old girlfriend lookalike, Dream Lo (Sharla Cheung).

Stephen Chow and Andy Lau had great chemistry together in their foe-to-friend relationship. It was funny seeing them play tricks on each other with their powers upon their first meeting, and then joining forces in establishing a partnership to overcome their adversities and defeat Hussein. This was a good show of drama in the movie. And, of course, the gambling matches were intriguing and exciting, a real show of strategy of winning from the gambling masters to the dueling tournament between the heroes and villains.

One of the greater movies from Stephen Chow and director Wong Jing, and I think one of the best gambling films from Hong Kong. And, I must also note the very catchy and awesome music score from Lowell Lo.

The movie's a real treat for all.
