Muddling along without any aim, the hero Zheng Kaisi accomplishes nothing and is in debt of several millions because of borrowing money from friends. In order to pay the debt, he boards a ship called "Destiny" to attend a mysterious gambling party at the instigation of someone. Once he wins, his debts can be canceled.The game rule seems very simple. Participants shall take pokers marked with "rock, paper, and scissors" as props for seizing the star sign of the opponent. However, in the face of a group of desperate gamblers, any little flaw can be utilized in the game.
Rock, paper, scissors in an exciting poker style :D
Well first I gotta give it to the visual effects guys .. WOW ,.. even though it had little to do with the real story of the plot .. it added an amazing colorful style that transfer you into a Chinese Deadpool effect... and the set itself was all classic musty dirty cage fight style .. loved it.
The story might sound ridiculous at first ,,well it might be .. but still they presented with such thrill and edginess it actually looked like one of these famous poker movies like "21" or "Casino Royale" i really didn't htink i'd enjoy it that much .. i mean it might have been a bit long .. but that's how the chinese production usually works .. anyway .. the surprise is .. there will be a second part of the movie ..
The cast were phenomenal ,, Yi Feng Li was so convincing and did really well .. Michael Douglas did good too .. being the old evil guy .. the movie had a lot of nationalities in the cast .. and they all did wel-.
Final thought ,, you might think it's silly , but it is not .. it is recommended.
