Audience Reviews for Bet to Basic
A mediocre gambling movie in a flooded genre also starring Yuen Wah (from the other mahjong movies Kung Fu Mahjong 1-3). While rather formulaic for the genre, their were a few comedic times but far too few to save this movie. Jordan Chan is the dopey hero who of course has uncanny luck to win at mahjong, while Chin Kar-lok plays his family member looking to exploit his power. Eric Kot and Yuen Wah play the mahjong masters who will teach young Chan the ways of the game to win back their honor after being defeated by their old student, Samuel Pang. The musical number was entertaining, the Election fishing spoof humorous, though the Kung Fu Hustle jokes were waaaay over played at this point. Overall nothing new and it does drag at times, however for fans of the genre at least it's another gambling movie and a mahjong one at that.
