Fairly ordinary gambling film
19 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A sequel of sorts to King Gambler (1976) with Tsung Wa reprising his role as Sha Tung and some of the supporting cast from that film also appearing here. The story concerns with Danny Lee's character as a manager of one of Macau's casinos battling it out on the card table to settle a gambling score with a Japanese gambler played by Chen Ping. He enlists the help of Tsung Wa's character and the battle of wits escalates. The film has its necessary quota of gambling scenes with some attempt of gun play towards the end when a professional killer is involved. However even though the film is competently done the sum of the parts just didn't quite engage me as much I thought it should. Wong Jing still holds the cards when it comes to the Hong Kong gambling genre especially at their creative peak in the late 80's- early 90's. This film should be seen in the context as a precursor to the development of that genre of which Ching Kong was definitely a pioneer. The action sequences handled by Ching Siu Tung is competent but a far cry from his classic works in the period swordplay/fantasy films. Overall a dated early 80's entry from Shaw Brothers still having the fashion hangover from the 1970's
