Trivia

Instead of doing a proper sequel, Stephen Chow took his "Gambling Saint" character into Wong Jing's God of Gamblers franchise for two subsequent features. The only true sequel/spin-off to All for the Winner is the film The Top Bet, which cast Anita Mui as Sing's sister. Stephen Chow had a minor cameo in that film. See more »

Probably Stephen Chow's signature movie.
8 May 2015 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is probably Stephen Chow's signature movie, where he plays Chow Sing Cho, a Mainland nephew who visits his Uncle Tat (Man Tat Ng) in Hong Kong and is being encouraged by him to enter the gambling world. Cho possesses supernatural powers that enable him to see through objects, thus, Tat thinks this would be a good strategy for Cho to score some big gambling wins to him get out of being poor.

Co-directed by nonsensical comedy buff Jeffrey Lau, this film actually has a well mixture of action and drama, from Cho running into the Hong Kong Triads to him attempting to learn the real reason beyond his powers. There is also a good dose of slapstick comedy courtesy of Man Tat Ng and Sandra Ng, who plays the funny Ping, the love interest of Coren Yuen's character. It's a good thing the slapstick stuff doesn't get annoying that will leave a bad aftertaste. In addition, thrown in the beautiful Sharla Cheung and a host of other familiar faces in Hong Kong cinema (Paul Chun, Yuen-yan Lo and Sheila Chan), you'll get a good rush of entertainment.

The plot goes at a fairly fast pace from start finish and all the card playing, triad stuff (wished the villain was utilized more, though), Kung-Fu action and comic humor make this an entertaining film.

Grade B+
