Storyline

Liu Ah Yee goes to the Bud household to worship the Buddha and to have her fortune told, but Mrs. Bud tells her it is not necessary. Ms. Liu is a compulsive gambler on the cruise ship Neptune, where Mrs. Bud's son, Pit, works, and he recognizes her. Pit has stretched the truth to his girlfriend, Moon Ah Say, about his job, so she thinks he's working in stocks, and she gets quite perturbed when he discovers that he is trying to help Ah Yee, who never wins, and whose grandmother, her only living relative, is dying. She returns to the Buds for help with her gambling, but Mrs. Bud gives her a egimen of alternatives to get her to stop gambling. Only after completing this regimen does Ms. Liu explain why gambling was so important to her. Written by Scott Andrew Hutchins <scottandrewh@hotmail.com>

A "God of Gamblers" wannabe with a paranormal twist.
17 April 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Number nine in the Troublesome Night series continues the trilogy's decline. The movie all but steers clear of anything hair-raising, chilling or ghostly. There are only a couple of instances where we see any ghost elements in the movie, but much of the plot involves Bud Pitt (Simon Lui) getting a job as an employee on a gambling ship and him helping bad luck-plagued Liu Ah Yee (Maggie Cheung Ho Yee) score gambling wins.

The movie, I thought, tried hard to follow in the footsteps of the God of Gamblers movies, and there are too many instances of screwball comedy and forced humor. While Simon Lui, Maggie Cheung and Lan Law make good screen presence, the filmmakers could have utilized them in a much better way.

It's not an entirely horrible movie - it's merely like you're watching a retread of the excessive God of Gamblers movie or a copycat. The acting and music score were good, but script was very average and plot was a little slow-paced.

Grade C-
