Trivia

The languages spoken by the Taiwanese group is Taiwanese and Mandarin. The language spoken by the others is Cantonese. Although Chow Yun-fat and Chingmy Yau's characters both speak Taiwanese and Mandarin (and in real-life), they refuse to speak to Wu Hsing-kuo's character using those languages (usually the most appropriate thing to do) since both sides were enemies. Therefore, they only spoke to him in Cantonese. See more »

Who says that sequels are worse than the original movie?
6 August 2000 | by action-6See all my reviews

"The Return of God Of Gamblers" is one of the few sequels that manages to be better than the original film. Chow Yun-Fat returns as Ko Chun or "The God Of Gamblers" in a more action-packed film. This movie has plenty John Woo-style actionscenes that will please any old fan of Hongkong-actionfilms, and the acting and story is also good. As in all actionfilms from Hongkong, the theme is brotherhood, friendship, betrayal and vengeance. A superb movie that surpasses the original movie in every way, but be sure to watch the original "God Of Gamblers" before you see this. 9/10
