God of Gamblers series (Stephen Chow not included) are always fascinating, but this prequel? I must admit the idea, tricks, strategy used by the characters here constitute good plot but the characters couldn't portray the original ones. Jordan Chan is certainly no Siang Hua Chiang. The character Lung Wu should not be in this film because he never met Koo Chun until he was recommended by the Japanese boss in GOG 1. Leon Lai doesn't have Chow Yun Fat's charm and the idea of why Koo Chun applies wet-and-set hairstyle is ridiculous. Anita Yuen doesn't have any similar face pattern to Cheung Min. However, as long as you don't know GOG, this is quite entertaining.
