The movie's theme evolves around a professional gambler. Didn't much care for the character's early on, but that changed as the story evolved. Starts with our lead and accomplices setting someone up in a card game and winning a large sum. This sham causes the triad to enter the picture and with the usual arm twisting convince the group to work for them.

Not many surprises in this movie, as it seems to follow the normal format for a gambling movie. The plus was on the acting side and even though familiar, they kept story interesting.
