I enjoyed "Casino Tycoon" a lot, though I feel that I should point out that I am quite familiar with Hong Kong cinema and how crazy it can get at times. Western viewers who sit down to watch this movie and are not familiar with Hong Kong cinema may be taken aback at times. That's because the movie throws in a number of genres along the way and jumbles them around. Sometimes the movie is a gangster movie, sometimes it's a romantic movie, sometimes it's a kung fu movie, sometimes it's a revenge saga, sometimes it's a look at characters over a long period of time... see what I mean? It's is kind of messy at times, but I admit that it's never dull, so if you are prepared for it like I am, you should find it enjoyable despite its two hour length. Looking forward to watching the sequel!
