Trivia

The Ding Lik character first appeared as one of the main characters of the 1980 TVB mobster drama The Bund. It was in that series that Ray Lui originated the role of Ding Lik, which he reprised in this film. Notably, Yun-Fat Chow, the star of God of Gamblers (1989), was also one of the primary stars of The Bund, and his Bund character Hui Man Keung is mentioned in this film, although the character does not appear in the film because he is dead.

You will get a good impression of stephen chow
11 May 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Most people know Stephen Chow for his work in Shaolin Soccer and Kungfu Hustle. In this movie you can see that he tries to make a parody of a certain movie without disgracing the original. Also he tries to show some good martial arts. God of gamblers III is a lot of fun and has some great action and even some romance. Also it adds a lot of fantasy elements, which gives this parody (of God of Gamblers with Chow Yan Fat) an original twist. You have to get used to Chinese humor and in particular Stephen Chow humor. But if you have seen the original version(s) he makes fun off then you will enjoy this movie! A must see for Stephen Chow fans!
