    When Wong Jing was getting serious. Neat but unfortunately dull until the last 20 minutes.

    "The Conman" marks a successful return to the charm and machismo that made early '90s Hong Kong gambling flicks so fun to watch. Andy Lau is in his element as an aging confidence man, though the film suffers from a poorly plotted final act and the presence of Nick Cheung, who at this point in his career had not yet perfected his acting skills.

    Andy Lau as usual, the cool gambling con man. Nick Cheung provides the laughter excellently. Athena Chu is he eye candy. Story is normal in this genre, overall good movie.
