Standard Chow
28 June 1999 | by S'faxSee all my reviews

A parody of movies like "God of Gamblers", Chow plays a young mainland Chinese who comes to visit his uncle in Hong Kong. His uncle discovers that Chow has certain talents and takes advantage of them by using them to win at gambling. Eventually, Chow's character ends up involved with shady characters, falling in love, and competing in a world championship card game. Over-all, not as good as "God of Cookery", but a good solid Stephen Chow film.
