The languages spoken by the Taiwanese group is Taiwanese and Mandarin. The language spoken by the others is Cantonese. Although Chow Yun-fat and Chingmy Yau's characters both speak Taiwanese and Mandarin (and in real-life), they refuse to speak to Wu Hsing-kuo's character using those languages (usually the most appropriate thing to do) since both sides were enemies. Therefore, they only spoke to him in Cantonese. See more »
Who says that sequels are worse than the original movie?
"The Return of God Of Gamblers" is one of the few sequels that manages to be better than the original film. Chow Yun-Fat returns as Ko Chun or "The God Of Gamblers" in a more action-packed film. This movie has plenty John Woo-style actionscenes that will please any old fan of Hongkong-actionfilms, and the acting and story is also good. As in all actionfilms from Hongkong, the theme is brotherhood, friendship, betrayal and vengeance. A superb movie that surpasses the original movie in every way, but be sure to watch the original "God Of Gamblers" before you see this. 9/10
