Audience Reviews for Du shen 2 (God of Gamblers' Return)

Chow Yun-fat reprises his Ko Chun character better known as the much coveted "God of Gamblers" following a hiatus from the series' mediocre mid-cycle where forces beyond our control allowed Wong Jing to collaborate with Stephen Chow and Ng Man-tat on not one but two Chow Yun-fat-free sequels. Ko's newfound tranquility in and around the walls of his beautiful French château is destroyed by a sadistic Taiwanese rival who disembowels the God of Gamblers' pregnant wife and places the fetus of his unborn son in a jar. Oh yeah, did we mention that Wong Jing returns as writer/director? If you missed the opening credits you'll surely know by now. The wife's dying wish: no gambling or revenge for 365 days, which essentially allows Wong to stuff the film's slightly bloated time frame with Wong Jing A la carte (notwithstanding the huckster suspending his two favorite subjects...for the time being). The payoff seems tailor-made for audiences who have come to thrive on the genre-bending packaged hysteria Wong Jing is both loved and loathed for. Only the second film in the franchise to feature Chow Yun-fat "God of Gamblers Return" is known as "God of Gamblers 2" in Hong Kong and was one of the former colony's largest grossing films of the '90s easily out performing all three of its successful predecessors.
