Dou hap (God of Gamblers II) (1991)
At one time there was a special genre of Hong Kong entertainment films which focused on gamblers and their like. In 1989, that genre was decisively revived thanks to the very successful release God of Gamblers. In that earlier film, among his other accomplishments, the master gambler played by Chow Yun Fat managed to pass on many of his skills and abilities to a younger associate, played by Andy Lau.

Audience Reviews for Dou hap (God of Gamblers II)
God of Gamblers II was a combination sequel for All For the Winner and God of Gamblers. Andy Lau reprises his role as Little Knife and Stephen Chow plays The Saint of Gamblers and Man Tat Ng returns as Blackie Tat. The places that are visited and the people who appear in this movie are from its prequels. It is an added bonus when they keep referring to Chow Yun-Fat's character and the clips they place in this movie which no doubtly are taken from his other movies. A very strange and funny sequel to both movies. Jing Wong was so impressed with All For the Winner that he contacted Stephen Chow to star in two sequels made during 1991. This combo went on to make several money making movies turning Stephen Chow into an Asian Comedy star and helping boost Jing Wong's status as one of the top filmmakers in Hong Kong.More
