Two H.K. pop stars make a pair of unlikely action heroes in this gritty gambling drama.
18 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Casino Raiders (1989) is another gambling action/drama from the writer-director dynamo Wong Jing. Andy Lau and Alan Tam co-star as two buddies who work for a casino keeping an eye out for cheats and other shady characters. After exposing a group that's been ripping off their place of business, the boss sends them to the United States to help out it's sister casino in Lake Tahoe. It's their that Andy Lau finds romance but uncovers a dangerous plot that'll affect his and Alam Tam's lives forever.

Another film from the gambling genre that Wong Jing help popularize after the unlikely success of God of Gamblers. This big budgeted epic takes place in three countries and features the notorious Heung brothers (Charles as a casino owner and Jimmy behind the camera as a co-writer,producer and co-director). Andy Lau and Aln Tam act their butts off whilst Wong Jing makes another enjoyable picture. This film does what it sets out to do. Entertains, and it sure does, If you liked God of Gamblers then you'll enjoy this gritty and violent opus.

Followed by an unlikely sequel.

Recommended.
