Storyline

Taiwanese triad leader Chung Chan (Jeffrey Lau) demands that the Saint of Gamblers, Chow Sing Cho (Stephen Chow), play cards for him at an upcoming gambling tournament - at the stake of his Uncle Blackie Tat's (Man Tat Ng) life. However, because Sing is away traveling around the world, Tat hopes that Sing's sister Mei (Anita Mui) would enter the tournament, as she has magical powers like her brother. Unfortunately, she refuses to gamble and is looking to apprehend Sing herself for abusing his powers in gambling. As a result, this leaves Tat to seek out the dicey Queen Of Gamblers (Carol 'Do Do' Cheng) to play for him instead. Written by Oliver Chu

All For the Winner 2
9 January 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

All For the Winner 2 a.k.a. Top Bet (1991) was the follow up to A.F.T.W. Anita Mui plays Stephen Chow's sister. She has come from mainland China to look for her brother. Whilst looking for him he learns that her brother and Uncle have become famous and have moved on. She comes across a shady female gambler (Carol Cheng) who learns about her power by chance and decides to exploit her.

Not as great as the first film, but Anita Mui carries the movie with her comic timing and superb acting. Carol Cheng is funny as well in the "Blackie Tat' role. This film is just a reworking of the first film with the same results. I found it to be a very entertaining film. Not a classic but it's worth a watch. The action set pieces are incredible (thanks to Corey Yuen) and the dialog is pretty sharp and witty.

Highly recommended!
