Andy Lau's classic Casino Tycoon series arrived digitally remastered as a part of the Shaw Brothers Collection of the New Millennium. Based on the true story of Macau gambling tycoon Stanley Ho, there are popular gangland dramas that detail a gripping story of greed, lust, and power. Casino Tycoon stars Andy Lau as Ho Hsin, who arrives in Macau with his friend Nan (Alex Man) in the 1940s. The pair work their way up the social ladder from menial laborers to valued employees of a large, somewhat shady casino. The years are rough and full of ups and downs, but Ho slowly makes his own fortune, and gains and loses love along the way. Sophisticated girlfriend Joey Wang is a casualty of the years, but Ho meets and marries Chingmy Yau. Yet Ho won't give up until he reaches his ultimate goal: staggering personal wealth, and finally ownership of his own string of casinos.
Ho's story continues in Casino Tycoon II, as he enters his elder years and faces a new series of new challenges, both personal and professional. Tien Erh (Vivian Chan) and Tien Pao (Edmond So), Ho's children from previous wife Joey Wang, return from Hawaii, with Tien Erh dragging along boyfriend Cheng Chen (Remus Choi). At the same time, Ho Hsin meets beautiful actress Ti Yun (gorgeous Michelle Reis), and begins an affair - with the full support of crippled wife Chingmy Yau. But the director of Ho's company, Nieh Ao Tien (Lau Siu Ming) may be looking to betray Ho Hsin...
Now collected in a single box set, Casino Tycoon and Casino Tycoon II are among the most popular and enduring works of both director Wong Jing and star Andy Lau.
Or, you can buy the (largely inferior) 'Blu ray'.
