The God of Gambler...in the 80s!
14 September 1999 | by JayDaManSee all my reviews

This movie has got it all .. gambling, kung fu, even chocolate! This movie takes place years before the original God of Gamblers movie. Ko Chun (Leon Lai) tells the process of his winning of the title God Of Gamblers at the first God of Gamblers Tournament. It includes Chow Yun-fat and Stephen Chiau. Lots of kung fu action ... tons of gambling and this prequel answers all the questions you always wanted to ask. Why the ring on the little finger? Why the bitter chocolate? Why the gel in the hair?
