Movie Info

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. In this one, Lau's character, now a master gambler in his own right, is being pestered by a young man (Stephen Chow) with intermittently available psychokinetic powers (the ability to move objects with the mind). However, not only is that ability only available to the boy when he's in love, but there's a lot more to the gambling business than the ability to cheat occasionally. They get into enough trouble to keep the story moving briskly, and this comic action film did well enough to warrant a sequel.

Audience Reviews for God of Gamblers II

This film is uniquely a squeal to both All for the Winner and God of Gamblers. I have not seen God of Gamblers, but it is not necessary to to understand this one. A lot more action than All for the Winner, but still great comedy. Stephen Chow is once again paired with Ng Man Tat as they have to contend with an impostor who claims he is the gambling master.

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.

An awesome sequel to God of Gamblers with an excellent story that still stays true to the first movie. A lot of action mixed with some thrilling gambling sequences and very funn comedic moments provided by Stephen Chow! Another fantastic sequel that is just as good as its predecessor!
